Take out the “and” in the year…and 

Capitalize like this:

Saturday, the fifteenth of June

Two thousand thirteen

five o’clock in the evening

Dinner and dancing to follow

ETA: Just saw your note about your mom’s full name needing to be on there…never seperate a man’s name from his last name, so put your mom’s name first.

Exactly what I was going to say. Otherwise looks good!

Well, traditional bride’s family hosting wording tends to be:

Dr. John and Mrs. Jane Smith
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Julie Leigh
Mr. Evan David Jones

The ‘together with’ tends to be more used for this sort of phrasing:

Together with their families
Sarah Dorothy Weinberg
Jason Burns Flugum
invite you to celebrate their marriage

Well, we actually worded ours as both parents hosting, even though we’re paying for most of it and my parents are helping with the rest.  My mom requested that it be worded that way – she didn’t feel right about his parents not being named.  So I’d go with whatever wording makes everyone happy. 

Oh, and the bride’s parents hosting wording tends to be for a more formal event, the ‘together with’ wording tends to be for a more casual one.  So I’d take that into consideration too.
