Eeeek! That’s a tough one. We didn’t put our parents names on the invitations at all so I’m definitly not an expert on this. But…

I would put their names on separate lines like this:

You & Financee

Along with their parents, 

Jack & Jane Smith,

Mary Ryan,


John Ryan

Invite you to join them ……. yada, yada, yada


It shows they are sparate couples even though they have the same last name

I’ve got the same issue – Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law are divorced but have the same last name (as does FFIL’s wife).  I was going to list them in the program exactly like you said – with them on their own lines and my folks on one line together.
