Sure: “presence” is misspelled

 

That’s all I see. πŸ™‚

@jennicole01:  +1

I would consider saying something with the location of the reception that it’s in the same parking lot, but I don’t think you need a seperate card for this.  I think saying it in the same line, or the line below would be fine

Also it should say: 

Mr. Robert M. (Last name)

requestS the honor of your presence

 

But looks good otherwise. πŸ™‚

It should say “requests” instead of “request”.  Many points of view on this but I wouldn’t capitalize the “Two” from two thousand and thirteen. “Six” o’clock should also not be capitalized.  Also, I’m assuming that it’s intentional that you are not including his parents’ names?

 

I would still do the separate card for the reception for formality – but that’s just my two cents.

presence, and I think the line should say “Mr. Robert M. requests” you will have to get with the etiquette bees on anything else, lol

The second line should read: “requests the honor of your presence”

The year should be “two thousand thirteen” (no “and”)

The “six” in “Six o’clock” should not be capitalized; you also need to specifiy whether it is six in the morning, or six in the evening (of course it’s evening, but you should still say).

And yes, you only have to include the other parents’ names if they’re helping to host (aka, paying). Some people still put the names on, though. But it’s up to you.

@leannamari3:  It’s probably good enough for a less formal event, however since this is formal and there might be guests who are unfamiliar with the area, or just plain dense lol I would include something in parenthesis (sp?) these things () saying that it’s in the same parking lot.  So, let’s say you’re having your wedding at Chuck E, Cheese and your reception at IHOP (hopefully not, but it’s just an example lol) then it should go like this:

Chuck E. Cheese

address

city, state, zip

With reception to follow at

IHOP

(In the same parking lot as Chuck E. Cheese)

 

ETA: I think it looks better on seperate lines like I have it above, but if there’s not enough room and it would make the invitations look off center, then I think it would be ok to have the (In the same parking lot as Chuck E. Cheese) on the same line as IHOP.  Hope that helps πŸ™‚

@leannamari3:  I don’t see anything about where The Pavillon Debordieu is located.  Based on your invitation, I wouldn’t know where it was.  I’m the kind of person who likes to be overly prepared, so if I got an invitation that was worded exactly like that, I would probably call you to check where it was.  That’s why I was thinking you should say something about it being in the same parking lot on the invitation.  It doesn’t sound like they share a parking lot though.  If it’s close enough to have signs pointing them from the beach to the reception building, and it’s all the same property, then I would just say “Reception to follow” and then put some kind of signage up on the day of the wedding to show people where to go after the ceremony.  If it’s in a different building, owned by a different company, then I think you should be more specific on the invitation.

Other than that it looks good to me πŸ™‚

@leannamari3:  I think if it’s all the same company, and you’re putting signs up pointing the way “Reception to follow” sounds more elegant and less confusing. πŸ™‚  The invitation looks nice though πŸ™‚
