Because your parent situation is so complicated You can try something like “[Your name] and [His name} request your presence at their wedding on [your wedding date] at [your wedding location]

 

Does that help?

It depends a lot on how important it is to each of your parents to be identified as hosts or by name.  The easist would be, “Together with their families, CharmCityLady and Fiancee request the pleasure of your company at their marriage…”

Alternative, since your dad is paying for most:

“CharmCity Dad

and

Charmcity Mom

request the pleasure of your company

at the marriage of their daughter

CharmCityLady

to

Fiancee,

daughter of

Fiancee’sMom [and stepdad, if she wants]

and

Fiancee’sDad [and stepmom, if she wants]”

I don’t think you need to include your dad’s fiancee as a host, since they’re not married yet.

If it helps, here’s how we worded it (all three sets of parents are paying equally).

Mom and Stepdad
Dad and Stepmom
&
Future Father-In-Law and Future Mother-In-Law

request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of their children

Mightywombat
&
Fiance

etc.
