@hazyleyedbeauty:  There is no need to write adults only reception.  It is impolite to mention who is NOT invited. 


Indicate who is invited by addressing the envelope to each guest who is invited.


Otherwise the wording is fine.  But May needs a capital and there is no and between two thousand fourteen.

@hazyleyedbeauty:  could just be a typo in this post, but there should not be an e at the end of breath in this line

but by the moments that take our breathe away

 I would use Adult Reception to Follow  rather than Adults Only Reception. I’m assuming you are having a separate reception card with that information

@julies1949:  I was just going to suggest the same thing: Adult Reception To Follow. Adults only sounds negative Smile

Does wherever you’re ordering from let you put that many lines?  I found that with some of these longer text ones the company yoru’e ordering from may not have room for it all on the invites you picked
