@jseg11:  Lovely font. And I the monogram with flourish is awesome. 

However, I do have a few suggestions:

The honour of your presence statement is really for church weddings, for other locations “The pleasure of your company” is used (no cap in “requested).

If you could reduce the spacing between the first two lines just a bit, I think it would look better.  And then reduce the size of “and” a bit and space out your names a tad more.

Instead of Saturday, March 15, 2014, state “the fifthteenth of March.  The year is not necessary, but if you want it, it should be spelled out.

Also, PM isn’t necessary.  Just “at Five o’clock” (or “at five o’clock in the afternoon”).

If you are providing a direction/map card, I would leave off the street address for the hotel.  

No zip code should be there for the hotel (it is not for mailing) so instead just Dallas, Texas (spelled out).

Also, maybe bunch in the spacing for the location (hotel) so those 2-3 lines go together and are set apart from the time and reception line.

These are going to be just lovely invitations! What color paper are you printing on? (just curious 🙂

Looks lovely! I agree with @wabanzi‘s suggestions.

I would also suggest putting your names in the same font as the rest of the invitation. The two fonts are both script-y but they have different slants, so IMO they clash a little. They’re both nice font choices but I don’t think they complement each other.

Love the top with the monogram though. The scroll details complement your font really well!

There should be a good sticky at the top of the paper board that has some good guidelines for invites as far as fonts go. I think script can be difficult to read for the bulk of the invite. U might read through the sticky and see if u want to make changes. Looks pretty good overall tho, accounting for the small changes indicated by PPs.
