How should our wedding invitations be worded if it is mostly my parents paying, along with my fiance paying for some things, and myself paying for very little (if this even matters)? The ceremony will be in a Catholic Church. Thank you!

Go with the traditional wording, i.e. “Mr.and Mrs. Harold Thomas Jones request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter, Sally Ann to Trent Jones Black ….”

Your parents are hosting this event.

How does one monogram towels for a person with a hyphened last name? For instance, Elizabeth Jane Smith-Jones.

E S-J J is the correct monogram in this instance; yes, you use both last names with the hyphen in the middle.
