Just put your names.  It’s the simpliest thing and if anyone (your mom) comments on it just say you didn’t know and it’s too late because the invites have been printed.

i put “together with their families so and so and so and so invite you ….” but maybe just your names would be best given your situation 🙂

It depends on who is the host of the event.  If you are the hosts then you would list yourselves.  If your mom is jointly hosting (which is more then just giving $), then list her as well.

Together with their families may not be correct in this case as it really is only with your family, if his parents are against the union.

Is your dad out of the picture as well?

I would say just leave it as you and your Fiance hosting the event. Leave both families off.

Whatever you do, don’t put his family or ‘together with their families’ since his family isn’t recognizing your marriage.

If your mother is okay, you can go with a contemporary style, which says “you’re invited to the wedding celebration as A and B are uniting together as husband and wife…”
