If you are paying for your own wedding, then it should be clear on your wedding invites that the invitation is coming from you as the bride and groom, and not either sets of parents.

If, however you have spent years saving up for your dream day and your parents are not getting involved with the cost, then its natural to think that the invite would come from you as a couple.  With both of your names on the invites, the RSVP cards can be sent directly back to you, as this will put you in more control of your day.
