I am in a somewhat similar situation, so I think I am going to use “Together with their parents” to avoid hurting anyone or singling anyone out.

I have a similar situation FIs parents are well off and paying for most of our wedding. My Dad is paying for my wedding dress and maybe a few other things. My mom was not financially able to contribute anything. So I struggled with the invitation because most have the brides parents would like to invite you ……. Also my parents are divorced and my Dad is remarried. So i didnt want to have m Dad my step mom my mom and Fi parents would like to invite you lol. So me and Fiance talked about and just went with a vague ” We are delighted to invite you to the wedding of….” Still wish I could have added them somehowEmbarassed

@allycat7813:  I think it works, even if the couple isn’t paying for anything.

“Together with their parents, Ally Cat and Tom Cat request the pleasure of your company…”

You and/or your Fiance are in part requesting their company, and the fact that it mentions parents at all implies that you guys aren’t paying for everything.  If you want, you could make it say “The parents of…” instead.
