I think what you’ve come up with works, but my sister is currently a bridesmaid for her best friend’s wedding and the bride and groom have the same last name as well and I believe they just went ahead with addressing their invite with the same last name.

You can always go ultra-traditional, and write:

YourMom and YourDad

Request the honor of your presence

At the wedding of their daughter,

Jane Michelle

To John Michael Doe,

Son of HisMom and HisDad.

Date, Time, etc.

Because in the really old fashioned format I don’t believe that you use anything but the bride’s given name. If your parents aren’t the only ones hosting, however, it could get a bit tricky. Maybe

YourMom and YourDad

and

HisMom and His Dad

Request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their children,

Jane Michelle

and

John Michael

Etc.

I like the option tanya2s left…but what if you went w/ the uniqueness of this situation and said something along the lines of:

Both sets of the Doe families request the honor of your attendance at the wedding of

Jane Michelle

to

John Michael

 

I am sure you could pretty it up and make it a bit more charming!  Good Luck!

Lucky you! No worries about changing your name! I am jealous!

If your wedding leans a little more to the casual side of things, you could just leave last names off entirely:

Together with their families

Jane

and

John

invite you…
