Just use their names then. 

 

Bride Name

Groom Name

together with their parents

Brides parents names and

Groom’s parents names

Request the honour of your presence

ETA: Not using the names of people who are not paying for the wedding is typically in deference to the feelings of those who are.  If you’re paying for the whole shabang and are perfectly happy with your guests assuming your parents chipped in, there’s no reason you can’t mention their names.

I second @SapphireSun:. Keep it simple. If you want more options I’ll tell you what we’ve done…we googled it. 🙂 There was an entire site that I can’t remember the name of with tons of wording suggestions.

Oh, but you guys spell it “honor”, so don’t copy me directly or your guests may think you’ve suddenly gone British on them.

Absolutely

“Honour/honor of your presence” indicates a ceremony in a religious building

“Pleasure of your company” is usually used for non-religious ceremonies.

We just spell things differently here, like “neighbour”, “colour”, “honour, as opposed to the American “neighbor, color, honor”.
