    I like option #3 the best personally. Also just a teensy note, there is an extra e in your spellings of seventeenth. Between the n and the t. I would also adjust to read Six o’clock in the evening. Smile

    EDIT: One more edit – maybe change it to share in THEIR joy?  In the third option.

    I like #2 and #3 the best — #2 is a bit more formal, so it just depends on what tone you’re going for.

    Also, how would you feel about “Saturday, the seventeenth of May”?

    @jlc3:  Agree with your edits!

    I agree with PPs about the edits and I like #2 and #3 best. Even though they’re a bit different in formality, I think that they’re both appropriate for the venue that you posted (:

    @MsGinkgo:  lol. I figured, but I didn’t want you to be like printing them right then and there and then have a freak out thread afterwards! 😉 I like share in their joy better for sure. What kind of design are you going with?

    @MsGinkgo:  

    This is what it says using your info:

    Bride and Groom

    Are getting married

    Saturday, May 17, 2014

    At Six o’ clock in the afternoon

    Dinner and Dancing To Follow

    Mc Art Collection

    **otherwise option 3 is good.

    I used something similar to your options #3:

    Cakey & CakeMan
    Invite you to Share their Joy
    As they exchange vows
    and celebrate their marriage …

    blah blah blah 🙂

    It flowed a bit better, looked a bit better, and explains what’s going on!

    My invites, for reference: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/critique-my-invitations#axzz2qTnMX8Ck Oooh, ahhh
