I’d say six o’clock in the evening, not afternoon

INVITATION:

two thousand fourteen (delete “and”)

RSVP CARD:

delete “kindly reply by” because it becomes redundant with the preceding RSVP. You can either say RSVP by March … OR delete “RSVP” and leave the rest as is.

Did you mean 5:00? I think you’ve got a typo.

 Some thoughts: 

  • Delete the ampersand (&) and use the actual word “and”

  • “Joyfully request” should not be capitalized, and should be on the same line as “the pleasure of your company”

  • Instead of “on their wedding day”, what about “at their marriage”? 

  • “Saturday the twenty-sixth of april” should read “Saturday, the twenty-sixth of April” 

  • “Six o’clock in the afternoon” – Six isn’t capitalized. Should read “at six o’clock”. “in the afternoon” isn’t necessary, and I think technically six is “evening” not “afternoon” for invitation purposes.

  • “Connecticut”, not “CT”. No abbrevations!
