I’m coming up with the final draft of my invite, I’m sure there are a bagillion posts on this… But really, it’s just easier to post my own for proof-reading! My biggest worries are capitalization & word useage… like is it share in “THE” joy or “THEIR” joy? Any tips would be appreciated! It’s a pretty basic invite.
Please excuse the silly names, they were the first two characters that I knew their full names.. had to get the full effect lol.

I’m a huge grammar/style nerd and writing and editing are a large part of my job, so I’m happy to weigh in on this.
As far as the “the” vs. “their” joy matter, either one is correct. It’s just a judgement call on your part as to the feeling you want to convey. I personally prefer “their” but that’s based solely on person preference.
As for the capitalization, “Twenty-Ninth” doesn’t need to be capitalized, but May should remain capitalized, as it’s a proper noun. Additionally, “Two Thousand Ten” doesn’t require capitalization either.
Otherwise it looks great!

“Did I do thatttt??” Sorry! I couldn’t resist!! 🙂
hergreenapples had great points.
My only piece of advice: I like the sound of “their” over “the.”
Looks great to me!
