Catholic wedding invite wording

We're doing the full Catholic wedding mass, including communion, and I want to make sure that our invites convey that we're doing that.  I also need to convey that my parents are hosting the wedding, while still honoring the role that my FI's parents play in his life, even though they're not contributing financially.  We do not want to use the "together with their families" wording.

Right now the wording is:

"Bride's parents" 
request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter

Bride
and
Groom

son of "Grooms parents"

at blah blah date and time

Church Name
Church address
Brooklyn, NY

Any suggestions?  I'd really like to keep the parents names where they are on the invite. How would I do the nuptial wording?

    This isn't perfect, but you could do something like:

    "Bride's parents" 
    request the honor of your presence as their daughter
    Bride
     and
    Groom
    son of "Grooms parents"

    are married in the sacrament of holy matrimony and the celebration of the nuptial mass

    I just found this wording (tweaked a bit to add groom's parents):  

    Mr. and Mrs. John Alan Smith request the honour of your presence
    at the Nuptial Mass at which their daughter
    Mary Anne
    and
    Mr. Joseph Micheal Jones
    Son of Mr. and Mrs. John Jones
    will be united in the
    Sacrament of Holy Matrimony

    Does that sound ok?

    I think you could just write
    Request the honour of your presence
    at the nuptial mass of
    BRIDE
    and
    GROOM
    son of...

    No need for the whole as they are united in holy matrimony bit. That's fine too, but a little wordy.Just another option

    we did:

    JLP and PAM request the honor of your presence at their marriage in the sacrament of holy matrimony and the celebration of the nuptial mass.

    you can easily add parents names to that:

    JLP, daughter of___ and PAM, son of____
