Nup- does not sound stupid! Reads well!

 

Here in Aus we call it capital not capitol, that is the only thing that threw me 😛

I had to Google capital vs capitol and I THINK you would use “capital” here unless you’re visiting Capitol Hill in DC.

I’ve never thought about the difference and it’s still a bit unclear even with Google lol

@Subrosa:  Instead of “delightfully dorky dancing”, what about “awkward (but enthusiastic) dancing”

Both work fine, and I see where your going with “drinks, dinner and delightfully dorky dancing”, I’m just not a fan of alliteration..

I like it! I would just swap these things around, they seem awkwardly placed:

What else to do in town?
The various fun things we have planned?
Where to stay?
How to get to the wedding?
Something else entirely?

@Subrosa:  LOVE the alliteration in the 1st part!

agree with @christoffels: on the order of the 2nd part.

doesnt sound stupid at all – reads fabulously! sets the tone as fun and relaxed!x

@Subrosa:  I, personally would leave out the part about “the delightfully dorky dancing” And just say “For additional information such as directions, accommodations, things to do in the area, please visit our website at…”

@soontobemrsm11:  Capital is the city, Capitol is the building. If it is the old state capitol building then she is correctin in using the o. If it is anything other than a legislative building then it should be an a.

Long story short, O is for building where laws are made, A is for everything else.

I would put the part about the logistics on a separate card, either enclosed or in a different mailing.  

I am also not a big fan of alternative “cutesy” wording on wedding invitations..  A wedding is a joyous and happy occasion,but the traditionalists feel that kind of language tries too hard to show how very different you are from every other person who ever got married, which comes across as  braggy and doesn’t “respect” the  sanctity of the occasion.  I am not saying I would believe the latter or feel this way, but yes, it is definitely not some people’s taste.
