@rmrsln2010: 

“Together with our parents” is the best most general and safest way to word an invitation. Because you can not leave your mom out of the invitation should you choose to name parents. You cant have “___ Your fathers name_____ , ____his mother’s name______ and mr & mrs.______ request the pleasure of your company at the marriage of …..”

 

It just looks weird with out putting your mom on, unless she is deceased or not invited at all.

Regardless of who is paying.  Who is actually hosting the event.  That is the person who is listed.

Together with their families is an easy fix.

@rmrsln2010:  Sorry to hear that, then it is perfectly acceptable to name parents! You could say:

 

_____your dads name _______request the honor of your presents at the marriage of his daughter _________ to ______________ son of ________ , _______ & __________.
