Both sets of parents are contributing to the wedding and we’re also covering a part of it. The wedding is on the more formal side.
Do you prefer:
1. Together with their parents A&V request the honor
2. Mrs.A Parents and Mr. V’s parents request the honor at A&V’s wedding
Or an other option?

Since your wedding is more on the formal side, I would do full parents names.

We are doing “together with their families”. We didnt want to have to list out full names (FI’s Mom and Dad are divorced, mom is deceased, and my dad isnt in the picture) but also wanted to acknowledge the help and financial contributions of our whole families.

We’re having a super formal wedding and split the cost 3 ways with each set of parents.
We chose to say all full names. We also got each guest name individually printed .
FI’s FULL NAME and MY FULL NAME
Together with their parents First and First and Last and First and first and last
Warmly request the pleasure of the company of _______________________
to share in their special day as they become husband and wife.

well, who is hosting the wedding? You said all three of you are paying, but are all three hosts? The invitation lists the hosts, not the financial backers.
Since this is a formal event, the names of all those hosting should be written out. So no to “together with their parents/families” (which would be suitable for a more casual affair.
If the two sets of parents are the hosts (but not you) then go with option 2. However, if you are also hosting along with the sets of parents, it should read:
and grooms parents,
bride and groom
requesy blah blah blah.
this way, you are included as hosts.

That’s what I’m sort of leaning towards as well.
Yeah that totally makes sense! I also personally like how clean that looks!
I may steal this!!!
To be honest, I’m not really sure how to determine that for our wedding? Any recomindations?

well hosting duties typically including planning the party, inviting guests, greeting guests and making sure they’re attended to, thanking guests for coming, and yes – also paying (but the point here being that it’s more than just writing the checks).
Who has been planning the wedding? Who has created the guest list?

Then it would be all off us. We planned our wedding, our parents helped with the guest list and we’re all going to be covering the good hosting duties day of.
Thanks for walking me through that, didn’t really think about breaking down the difference.

no problem (: So it sounds like you’re all hosts, so make sure the invitation reflects that you’re hosting as well as the parents (:
