RSVP Cards: 

-delete “and” before Thirteen

-lowercase “have been reserved in your honor”

-Not really proofreading, but you might move the last four lines down/air out the text–it’s all kind of there together, and then there’s a lot of blank space at the bottom.

-Just a side note: Every time I hear “First of May”, I always think of that Jonathan Coulton song.

Is there supposed to be a comma after eureka in “eureka, springs, arkansas”?

Enclosure Card:

-o’clock is lowercased, even on an invitation

-Crescent Hotel either needs a comma after it or needs to be on its own line

-I’d use Ark. for Arkansas. It looks a little more formal than the postal abbreviation, and that’s what they use in newspapers and magazines.

-Lowercase accommodations, and add comma after it

Invites:

-Hyphenate Twenty-Sixth

-Change to Two Thousand Thirteen

-Lowercase o’clock

-Design note: I personally would choose another font for the black, non-script text. It looks like Times New Roman, which is common for business use, but not so much for weddings. Maybe an all-caps serif font? It’s fine if you want to leave it, but I pretty much do this for a living, and thought I’d at least throw that out there.

PS: I’ve been to a wedding at the Crescent and it was lovely. I think you made a great choice. Watch out for the ghosts 😉

@BushelAndAPeck:  Well, if that’s your only other choice, I’d leave it as is. It’s probably not something anyone else would notice, and it definitely looks better as-is than the other way.

looks good, but I’d take out 2013 on the RSVP card – you don’t really need it.  You don’t need to put and in two thousand thirteen but it’s my preference.
