I think that wording reads nicely, though I’m not sure what etiquette dictates for this scenario. I personally played around with several wording templates and then blended them to come up with ours, but this is a unique case.

Good luck! I hope someone else can be more helpful than I am. :-/

Jennred782 has a good example.  The first one you brought up is nice, but it actually does not denote his family has being financially helpful.  I don’t know if you care or if that would both either family, but just so you know.  The "inviting" family is the hosting family or families.  Your first example specified the bride’s side and just said who his family was.  "Together with" is probably your new best friend phrase.
