    I was in the same predicament! Here's what we did...

    We didn't include anything about parents in our invitation, since we are paying for the bulk of the wedding ourselves, and actually, my mother and I came up with the following, simple but elegant wording:

    One love. Two hearts.
    Their future starts, beside the sea.

    The honor of your presence is requested
    At the marriage ceremony of

    (Fill in your name here)
    And
    (Fill in the groom's name here)
    On (Fill in the date spelled out)
    At (Fill in the time spelled out)

    (Name of the resort)
    (Name of Town, Country in which wedding is taking place)

    It was just really clean, and we thought it was gracious in the fact that was more general, as opposed to saying that John and I were doing the inviting specifically.

    Hope that helps!

      We didn't include our parent's names either (FI's dad is deceased and his mom will not be attending). Our invites were very informal, so we just used 'we' and 'us'.

          My invitations just said

          My name

          and

          His name

          look forward to sharing with you
          the sun, the sea and memories
          of their wedding ceremony

          Here's a site that has tons of different styles. It helped me with my invitations and my RSVPs
          VerseIt.com

            Thanks so much, Jaime! Like I said, we just tried to keep it pretty basic with a little bit of a DW-esque flair, and we wanted to incorporate "One Love" somehow since that seems to be the unofficial slogan of Jamaica (thanks to Bob Marley and his famous song)!

            Oh, and I checked out the site Michele recommended and Verse It is really great, as well!

              Here is what I'm thinking:
              This day we begin the adventure of a lifetime...
              Please join us, along with our parents, as we
              my name
              and
              his name
              are united in marriage at a seaside ceremony
              on (insert date) at (insert time) in the afternoon
              (insert location)
