Very elegant!! Off the top of my head:

– I’d put “and” instead of “to” when saying who is marrying whom.

– Why is the date and time written in words? It seems harder to read than numbers.

– “Adult Reception” made my mind immediately go to a dirty place – granted, it hangs out pretty close in general. I get what you’re going for, though. Maybe “Adults Only Reception” does sound too harsh, but that is the standard wording for it…

i think “to” instead of “and” is the correct wording unless it is a Jewish ceremony. 

The date and time look fine to me, it’s more formal than a PP suggested. If you are going for super formal/technically correct, the date should be “two thousand fourteen,” no and in between. (That being said, no one will probably notice!)  

Evening technically starts at 6 pm, so it should be five o’clock in the afternoon. 

Same thoughts about including the adult part. 

Other than that, very classy invitations, I think they are beautiful! 

do you know what the name of the font the date and location are written in?

DanielleI:  The only thing I would change, and this is just preference, is instead of writing “their children”, I would put “their son and daughter” only because when I read children, I tend to think of young children. When I read son and daughter, I don’t necessarily think of young kids. But again, that’s just my preference. Everything looks good!

We went back and forth on the afternoon or evening thing, with my 1st daughter’s wedding. She set the ceremony at 5:30, because the hotel had a 3:00 check-in, and she added an extra half hour to the reception length. I found some sources that strictly said 6:00 PM for evening, a few said 5:00, and others said 5:00-6:00 was the change over period – if your wedding was formal (her’s was black-tie in an ornate, historic ballroom) using evening was fine, so we did. (I agree with the Adult thing. Her’s was 21+, except for a 16 year old bridesmaid – her honorary little sister, and we didn’t put adult on anything; just addressed the save the date and invitation, to who was invited, with a blurb on the website).
