My parents are very religious, I don't want to upset them...

Humanist ceremonies are non-religious, not anti-religious. Humanism is about the things that unite people, rather divide them, and the most important of these is love, so it's difficult for even the most intolerant person to take offense.

I often say that "although this ceremony is non-religious, it will be entirely legal, mostly civil (slight pause in case anyone gets the joke) and there will be time later for contemplation, during which those of you of faith may wish to say your own private prayer".

I continue to look forward to the day I attend a wedding in church when the priest or minister extends non-believers the same courtesy.
