we just said ‘together with our parents’ since we collectively have six with six different last names (way too confusing). no one was offended in the least.

That was going to be my suggestion too. I’ve always seen it stated as "together with their parents". It’s clean, simple and non-confusing. If you want to highlight everyone individually, you might want to think about doing it in the program. You could do a short bio type thing or just list all the family and write a thank you in the back. That would let everyone know that all the parents contributed. Good luck!

I agree with everyone else, for your situation the "together with our parents" bit would probably be the easiest.  Both of our parents are still together and helped pay for the wedding so we’re doing more of a "french fold" style (I think that’s what it’s called) where the names are listed side by side in 2 mini columns before mine and his names.  e.g.

 Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane             Mr. and Mrs. Tom and Mary

                  Doe                                               Smith


r equest the honor of your presence…

(no idea if the formatting will actually work here, but that’s the gist)  You could probably do something similar to this if you absolutely wanted everyone’s names on the invite…

  good luck!
