Technically, I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be Friday, the thirteenth of April. But I had limited space, so I put Saturday, January fourteenth. Nobody complained, and I felt fine about it.

Etiquette/formality/”rules” people follow technically says “the thirteenth of April” but…if you want to avoid the “she’s getting married on Friday the 13th!” comments and stuff like that, I’d say either is acceptable!

I’d say Friday, April 13th.  Friday the 13th in that order just makes me think of the movies!

well, go with it if you want to follow the “rules” but be prepared for the jokes. lol I’d personally go with April 13th. It breaks up the friday the 13th flow and people may not think of the movie. I’m also not a big rule follower. I think it really doesn’t matter as long as people know where to go and what day/time to be there. Also that they don’t immediately think of a slasher movie when they think about the day of my wedding! lol 🙂

Yes, the formal manner of writing a date on an invitation would call for you to write,
“Friday, the thirteenth of April.”  However, when you spell out the date in that manner, it does not have the negative affect that casually writing “Friday, the 13th of April” would, so you should be fine in following the established protocol.
