Can you ladies double check the itty bitty details of my invitation wording?
Mostly I’m worried about the capitalization. What words get capitalized? I want to capitalize everything for some reason! There’s an “AND” in Two Thousand and Thirteen, right? Is there any punctuation after the state name and before the zip code?
Mr. and Mrs. “Father Name”
Request the honor of your presence
At the marriage of their daughter
On Friday, the Second of August
Two thousand and Thirteen
At four-thirty in the afternoon
“Church Name” Roman Catholic Church
“999 Street Name”
“Central”, New Jersey 12345
Reception to follow

@koi424: “On” and “Second” are not capitalized. Neither are any of the words in the year.

Probably “At” before the time doesn’t need to be capitalized either. I just thought it looked wrong having lowercase letter at the start of a line.
Any other hints?

@koi424: Oops, forgot to add that “request” and “at” aren’t capitalized either. Check out this wording. You can follow the capitalization they use here:

This is how our invitation designer said the capitals are traditionally. And not sure if you or your FI wanted to include his parents names but we did:
Joe and Jane Smith (mom didn’t like the Mr and Mrs Joe Smith)
Invite you to share in the joy of
the marriage uniting their daughter
the son of
Grooms Parents Names
Saturday, the seventeenth of August
Two thousand and thirteen
at five o’clock in the afternoon
Where are you having your wedding? I am from northern NJ 🙂

@VermontBride13: I grew up in bergen county, but I’m a central Jersey girl now. In traditional Jersey fashion, I’ll let you know approximately where I’m getting married by telling you it’s around exit 8 on the turnpike. lol
Thanks for showing me your wording!!
