Quackadoo:  For me I consider 5pm to be the afternoon rather than the evening but I think it’s fine to leave it at evening – that way people sort of know the tone of the reception better I guess…

Quackadoo:  I don’t think you need to start every new line with a capital, since it’s not the start of a new sentence. I might be wrong on that, but my personal preference would be not to do it! Hopefully the ettiquette bees will correct me if I’m wrong though!

I don’t mind caps at the beginning of each line, but I am wondering if “hour” (in Cocktail hour) shouldn’t be capitalized too, since Reception is? This is the sort of thing I’d look up.

Is it honour or honor?

looked it up. either is correct. Honour is for more fomal… which seems like what you are going for. 🙂

I would put the “and” between your parents on a separate line and not with a capital A. I would also not start each line with a capital or capitalise reception.

Quackadoo:  If it’s not Mr or Mrs, a day or a month, don’t capitalise it.

Quackadoo:  I thought Honour was just the British way of spelling it!

Yeah: And, Request, On, At are the ones standing out for me!

I believe “two thousand fourteen” is the correct format for the date.

Why are you listing the maid of honor and best man? I’ve never seen that before.

Ditto to not capitalizing the start of every line.

I would change “their son and daughter” to “their children.” For some reason putting son and daughter makes it sound like all the parents had children together and now the two are getting married.

Mr. and Mrs. Johnathan Myers

Mr. and Mrs. Tom Hanks

request the honour of your presence at the marriage of

Bride’s First&Middle

and

Groom’s First&Middle

Sunday, the seventh of December

two thousand fourteen

at one o’clock

Venue Name

Street Address

City, State

 

 

 

Do not list best man and maid of honour on your invitations (you can do this on the ceremony program).  Do not have strange gaps in the wording (it is supposed to read like one giant sentence).  Do not have a memorial/in memory section on the wedding invitation (you can do this on the ceremony program).  The reception information should be on a separate insert and not on the actual invitation.
