I think your best bet is going to be to look at invitations that are in the landscape format rather than the portrait.  This way you have more room to have the names.

hopefully this link works, but it’s just an example of the layout i’m talking about.

Have you considered DIY? This way you could put in whatever you want.

Also consider that if your parents are hosting, and you want to acknowledge his parents, and (lots of ands) they have the same last names as you, you can do something like:

Jane and John Loves-a-Limey

request the honor of your presence

at the marriage of their daughter

Bride’s Firstname Middlename

to

Groom’s Firstname Middlename(s)

son of

Bob and Donna Limey

Since your parents’ names are generally in smaller font than yours and the groom’s, you have more text to play with there.

Or you can differentiate your names by a fancier (script) font that is only a little larger than the rest of the text, and have that as a print font.  That way the names stand out but take up less room.
