Our wedding ceremony was “half past four in the afternoon” – not sure how else you would write it without writing it out numerically….

And grammatically, if you want to use “together with their families” – it would be “Jane and John request the honor of your presence…”. if you use “the honor of your presence is requested” which is passive, it doesn’t make sense with “together with their families” because that would read as “the honor” and essentially the families of the honor requesting the guest’s presence…

Mine is half past seven in the evening. (I had to! Sunset is at 7:37!) It didn’t sound right any other way. If they can’t figure that out, then they don’t need to be attending. 😉

What the hell do they want you to put?

How about…

15 minutes times 2 past 4

30 minutes before 5

3 ten minute time periods past 4

😉

@HolyVowels: I guess it’s confusing to some people or at least takes a bit to figure out because that’s not how people typically read the time… you would normally say “four-thirty in the afternoon” so I guess it’s an option to write it that way as well – it’s just less formal. but just do what you want – people will figure it out 🙂
