I’d so go for the traditional format, Brides Parents first… and then naming you two… followed by an acknowledgement of the Groom’s Parents if so desired (can be put in or skipped)

So…

Mr and Mrs John Doe, request the honour of your presence, at the marriage of their daughter, Betty-Ann to Mr. Bob Black (son of Mr & Mrs Joe Black), Saturday ~ the 10th of May, two thousand and twelve, at four o’clock, Village Church, Address, Town

This format, conveys the message that the Bride’s family are the Hosts… although it is the same one used when the Bride & Groom chip in too.

Versus…

When both families are paying…

Mr and Mrs John Doe, and, Mr and Mrs Robert Black, request the honour of your presence, at the marriage of their children…

*NOTE – Info as per Peggy Post’s Book of Wedding Etiquette (my go to for all Wedding Etiquette dilemmas)

Hope this helps,
