Technically, the name of the host (who pays) is listed.  I’m not sure what advice to give you here without leaving our your mom. 

My invitations are listed as;;

X and Y
request the pleasure of your company
at the wedding of their daughter,
Bride
to
Groom,
Son of A and B,
at
date tiem place blah blah blah

Could you simply do “Together with their families, Bride and groom…” ?

i would say “together with their families , X & Y request the pleasure of your company at blah blaha” people who really know you guys will know who is paying for what.

@sweetpeony:  I second this. Some people do put everyone on individually but that can get clunky. This plus comment in your speech thanking dad & step mum for their generosity & the gift your planning should be enough?

If your Dad is hosting, his name goes at the top, with his wife’s. If that bothers your mom, then she needs to contribute. Seriously. He’s the host and the invitations are issued by the host.

We put “We request the honor of your presence … at the marriage of (me), daughter of (my parents’ names) and (FI), son of (FI’s parents’ names) …”

The “we” is never explicitly identified, so it doesn’t really point to who’s paying.
