Do you want any mention of parents/family on the invite?  Not names, but just to come celebrate with them too?  Reason I ask is although we are contributing, my parents are also.  We are doing:

Please join us

together with our parents

for a celebration of love, friendship, laught and family

as

Curlysue

and

Fiance

exchange vows and are united

as husband and wife

yadda, yadda, yadda…

I would do a search for “invite wording” and “couple hosting” and see what comes up.  You should find lots of examples that all cover the basic info with differences in formality and tone.  This is helpful for getting started and maybe even finding exactly what you want. 

As for your seating issue, I know many people put this info on the rsvp card.  We did “___ seats have been reserved in your honor” so people knew how many were invited.

There’s really no need to clarify the no plus one thing on the invitation… The invitation should just be addressed to whomever the guest is… if you are allowing them to bring a guest, just write ‘and guest’ or ‘and miss mary sue’ on the envelope. If it doesn’t say ‘and guest’ then the recipient should know they are not allowed a plus one.

Here are a couple different wordings:

The honor of your presence
is requested at the marriage of

BRIDE’S NAME
to GROOM’S NAME

Saturday, the twenty second of May
two thousand and ten
at half past four o’clock

VENUE
ADDRESS

Reception to follow

OR

You are invited to a celebration
of the beginning of our new life together

as BRIDE
and GROOM
are united as husband and wife

Saturday, the twenty second of May
two thousand and ten
at half past four o’clock

VENUE

Dinner and dancing to follow
