@CoCoCourtney:  i think they’re adorable.  As I’m reading it, the word ‘their’ appears an awful lot.  It may be unavoidable really, not sure if there’s another word that could be used.  Just something I noticed.  Your RSVP date also seems really early.

Super cute though!!!

I love this invitation! I do agree with the “their” thing, but it doesn’t bother me too too much.  But they’re very cute!

I don’t think “two thousand” should be hyphenated.

I don’t think “o’clock” should be capitalized.

You might want to put the full address of the venue unless you’re having it printed on a reception card or something.

“RSVP” is missing the period after the P.

I think the numbers you’ve spelled out in the date would be better capitalized (ie September Twenty-Seventh, Two Thousand Fourteen).  Also, maybe change Enthusiastically Attend to Enthusiastically Accepts to match the Regretfully Decline?

@CoCoCourtney:  I don’t think the RSVP date is too early! I think it is always helpful for last minute planning etc. to know in advance how many people are attending.  To me, August 30 is only 4 weeks in advance..if you feel that 8 weeks is too much maybe make it middle of August? It also depends when you are planning on sending out your invites? Does that give your guests enough time to plan before sending the RSVP? Just my 2 cents 🙂

@CoCoCourtney:  August 30 is probably better IMO.  It does depend on how long people will have the invites for – you want to give them enough time to plan but not so much time that they forget to mail them back!

Great invitation!  Few things I noticed:

All the numbers you spelled out in your wedding date should be capitalized (September Twenty-seventh  Two Thousand Thirteen)  and no hyphen in Two Thousand Thirteen

O’clock does not need to be capitalized.  You could add an “at” or “beginning at” before the time but it is not necessary.

Your RSVP seems a little redundant.  I dont think you need the number of attending line.  Maybe change it to “Please indicate the number of meal choices” or something like that

Everything PPs have said, and also the comma after “love” isn’t grammatically correct.

Also, i’m a fan of the Oxford Comma – eg “Dinner, drinks, and happily ever after to follow” instead of “Dinner, drinks and happily ever after to follow”.  But that’s personal taste.

@CoCoCourtney:   I think most guests would write a number next to accept/decline – or is that where you want their names to go?

@MrsBaldEagle:  +1- I don’t think those lines next to accept/decline are long enough if you want names there. Usually, there’s a longer line at the top for names, and then they can check accept or decline
