I’d ditch the “to join them” since you’re already requesting their company, so it’s a bit redundant.

Do you want to mention the parents at all? Our invite opened with “together with their parents” but you don’t have to include that if they’re not paying for anything. If they are, you’d best add it so they don’t get offended.

Also, I think you’re technically supposed to write out the dates all in words (I say “I think” because I don’t know if this depends on the formality level of the wedding or not). So yours would read:

Saturday, the twenty-fourth of November
two thousand twelve
at one o’clock in the afternoon

It looks weird but it’s just one of those things. Hope this helps!

I agree with the PP. Drop the “to join them…”, and if you’re on good terms with his/your parents I’d at least put “along with their parents” to honor them a bit. Usually numbers are written out but depending on the formality of your event you don’t have to.

@Soon2BeeMrsG:  It definitely looks weird to write out the numbers, but alas, we do not make the rules; we only follow them! haha.

I went with “Together with their parents” because Darling Husband also has a big mish-mash of a mess of parents. Definitely didn’t want to list everyone by name. You could also put “along with their families” so it’s more inclusive, or you could put nothing at all! Otherwise, you’re lookin good.
