Is there anyway to use a different font just for the III that’s not so swirly? That would certainly make it easier!

You could always use a different font for the III’s? I’ve done it for stuff on designs before and usually it doesn’t look bad (it’s a trial and error thing, lol).

According to technical ettiquette, you’re supposed to word it as John Smith, III. There is no other “proper” way to indicate that he’s a third. If his father and grandfather have passed away, he can choose to drop the III, but other than that, it has to be in Roman Numerals…

See what other fonts will look less awkward, and if you can mix and match so it looks less awkward? 

ETA: This person says you can use “the 3rd”: http://www.topweddingquestions.com/topic/15145-wedding-invitation-wording-using-name-suffix-jr-sr-iii/

I agree with the other ladies, using a second font is totally the thing to do.
