looks good! It is very formal in tone if that is what you are going for great! Are his parents in the picture? Are they going to be sad they are not included?

We liked the celebratory, enthusiastic, etc words to make it a little more personal.It is about the tone you are trying to set thoguh.

Sounds good to me, except traditionally most people would say “honor of your presence” only when referring to a house of God. If it’s a secular location, most people use “pleasure of your company.” (But it’s not wrong to say “honor of your presence” when referring to a secular location; it IS wrong to say “pleasure of your company” when referring to a house of God–you’re not God’s “company.” 🙂

I also think the “cocktails, etc.” line is fine; however, you don’t need it if you have a reception card with the time on that–people can figure it out. Just FYI.

thats the british spelling of honor isn’t it? I like “to follow” better than “immediately following”

I think it looks good, but I would say “half past four” instead of “half after four”, but that might just be personal preference. Otherwise, I think it reads well 🙂

Sounds good to me.. Maybe change “at half after four o’clock in the afternoon” to “half past four o’clock in the afternoon”
