I think usually you put “Together with their families, Bride and Groom”.

I don’t think it’s weird. Usually though I’ve seen it done as:

Together with their families,

Bride & Groom

invite you to celebrate their marriage

Date, Time, Place

Yeah, that doesn’t sound odd at all.  Mine were:

Together with their parents
Bride & Groom
request the pleasure of your company
in celebrating their marriage

And we even had it at our house!  😛

i think either way is fine, but perhaps depends on the formality or your event.  i feel a more formal event it would be better to talk in 3rd person and a casual one, first person.  our wedding is casual, here is what our invites say:

Because you have shared in our lives

in friendship and love, we

BRIDE

&

GROOM

together with our families,

joyfully invite you to join us

in celebration of our marriage

on…

at….

If you want to say “Our Wedding Day” you can’t refer to yourselves in the third person in the first line.

Maybe what you should do is add “we” in there.  Like:

Together with our families, we
Bride & Groom
invite you to share in
Our Wedding Day
