(Oops, accidently posted this under the wrong catergory. here we go…)
I corrected some of the errors on my invite. Does anyone see anything else that needs adjustment? I am worried about not capitalizing the right words. Also wondering if I should include my last name, or just to my first and middle, as the sample suggested.
– My Father and his wife.
– My Mother and her husband.
– Future Mother-In-Law, who is a widow.

I think it’s fine to include your last names, if you want to.
The Church doesn’t have an address. Is it listed someone where else on the invitation suite?
Not sure if this matters to you, but the convential way to write out the date is
“Saturday the eighteenth of May”
and the year is just “two thousand thirteen” – you don’t need the “and”
Also, I think it’s “one o’clock in the afternoon”
It’s such an elegant invitation!

Take “And” out before Future Mother-In-Law, it indicates marriage.
I agree with PP about the “one o’clock” thing.
But the “and” in the date should be left in! Always. I know some people say it’s a Britishism but everything I’ve read on wording etiquette has the “and” in there.
I think since both families are hosting you should keep your last name in, but I don’t know what the etiquette is on that.
I love the invite by the way!
