A toast to your hostess is a very traditional part of a formal dinner. Don’t mention anything about who paid for what (that would be very gauche). If you don’t want to thank the groom’s parents for raising him, how about just thanking them for him? You could make a humourous comment about how they are the biggest contributors to your sister’s future happiness because they contributed the groom — and then offer a toast to his mother based on that.

Are you the Maid/Matron of Honor giving the Maid/Matron of Honor toast?  If so, I would focus on the bride and groom and not mention anything thanking the hosts.  That’s for the bride and groom to do, IMO.
