Do you really want to have them on the invitations?  You could go the easy route and say ‘Together with their familiies’.  If you want more traditional wording, you could have ‘Mr. and Mrs. Blue (your aunt and uncle) invite you to the wedding of their neice Jane Doe to Jack Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. Smith’.

Oh I’m sorry!  Zoning out here today.  I don’t really know much about program wording, we didn’t do programs.  I think I would just have them as the ‘hosts’ of the wedding and in another part list the family members like usual.

This is really tricky.  Generally the only names listed in the program are the wedding party, parents of the B&G, and grandparents of the B&G.  

Lots of times couples write a note in the programs to their guests (thanking everyone for coming, etc).  Perhaps you could specifically thank your aunt and uncle for hosting in that section.

In all honesty, you should talk it over with your fiance and find something you are both comfortable with.  In the end, if you don’t include certain people or if you include them all, someone is always going to be offended.  Sadly, people usually go the easy route and please the more vocal party. If you feel it is important for someone’s name to be on there, I think you should put it on.
