Yes I would do Dadfirst and Last and Momfirst and Last, but I think you can have them on the same line so:

 

Peter Smith and Janet Smith

request….

I believe it should be

Mrs. Janet S
Mr. Peter S

request the honor of your presence…

I would not put them on the same line if they’re divorced.

When in doubt – ask your Mom. My FI’s parents are divorced and we just asked his Mom who indicated she was fine being on the same line with his Dad but preferred the “Ms.” title rather than “Mrs.”

Seperate lines.

Do not use “and”.

Jane Smith

Peter Smith

request your presence at the marriage of their daughter . . .

 

Personally, I didn’t like the way it looked so I did “together with their parents”.  On our announcements my mom did it that way, though.
