The proper way to do it is spell it out not by using the actual number… eg. Tenth of October

If it’s just a shower invitation, there’s no need to be super formal. I’d probably do “Saturday, October 1st/September 10th” and I’d change the time to “1:00 PM” to keep the level of formality the same.

Since it’s a bridal shower, you can do it anyway you want. However, the general guideline is that if you are going to spell out one number (“one o clock”), you should spell them all out for consistency’s sake.

Since it sounds like a more formal shower, I’d spell it out like “The First of October”. I think it sounds nicest.
