I am making bridal shower invitations for my best friend, and I’m struggling with how to write the numbers.
Please join us for a bridal shower honoring
Saturday October (the first/first/the 1st/1st)
at one o’clock in the afternoon
(the couple is registered at)
by September (the tenth/tenth/the 10th/10th)
(to blah blah)
No matter how I write the numbers, they just don’t look right.. but I think it’s because I’ve been staring at them for so long!
Thanks for your help!

The proper way to do it is spell it out not by using the actual number… eg. Tenth of October

If it’s just a shower invitation, there’s no need to be super formal. I’d probably do “Saturday, October 1st/September 10th” and I’d change the time to “1:00 PM” to keep the level of formality the same.

Since it’s a bridal shower, you can do it anyway you want. However, the general guideline is that if you are going to spell out one number (“one o clock”), you should spell them all out for consistency’s sake.
Since it sounds like a more formal shower, I’d spell it out like “The First of October”. I think it sounds nicest.

if you would like to stick to the formal wedding writing then I would but if not its completely up to you

I dont think it has to be super formal since its a shower invite

Thank you so much!! Since it is going to be a little formal, I think I will spell it out! Plus, the longer wording helps to even out the invitation.
