I prefer the first one, but you may want to ask your parents – some parents are very fussy about this issue. We did Together with their parentsand I really liked it. I dont really think it should be about who paid for what, but some parents prefer it the old fashioned way!

I like either. I also like the wording Mr. and Mrs. (parents name) invite you to the wedding of their daughter Ms. Salsals to Mr. Salsals son of Mr. and Mrs. (his parents name)… It implies the brides parents paid, but still acknowledges the groom’s parents.

we had a similar situation.  i ultimately went with something along the lines of my parents and his parents request the honor of your presence at the wedding uniting me and Fiance.  i talked it over with my parents and they liked the idea of including his parents on the invitation as well.  i also felt like since we were contributing nearly half the wedding costs ourselves that i couldn’t just have it read like my parents were hosting it, you know?
