Invitation wording

So I'm printing our wedding invitations and I am iffy about the wording... We started it off by saying:

"Together with their parents, the honor of your presence is requested at the marriage of (my name) to (his name) ..."

 

is is this wording correct? His parents aren't really together and we are paying for the wedding but wanted to acknowledge the parents in some way...

 Yea I was wondering if I should've said "together with their parents, (my name) and (his name) request the honor of your presence.." Guess either one works fine ?

 I personally prefer your second wording, but what you have already done is ok too
