It’s evening….that is strange they would tell you that.  Standardly 6pm or later is evening.

Haha I personally would have written “evening” as well. But I’m not sure what’s “right”?

Definitely evening. I can’t imagine that being referred to as afternoon.

I would believe anything before 6 is afternoon, at or after six is evening.  I would have them change the proof.

Evening for sure!!  If you put afternoon I would think you were wrong.

that’s so weird. I would definitely say evening.

I thought 6:00 pm was the beginning of evening, however put whatever you’d like.  My wedding is (very formal) and at 5:30 and that was technically afternoon, but my invitation person agreed it would be okay to put evening if I wanted.

As  Dr. Sheldon Cooper would say… Pre-evening.

That’s odd. I’d definitely say evening.  I was planning on putting evening for ours which is at 5:30 although now this is making me second guess myself!

6 is definitely evening and I would even say 5 is the cutoff

I guess “in the afternoon”/”in the evening” are unnecessary.
