I just got my invitation proof back from Wedding Paper Divas and noticed where I had written “6:30 in the evening” they replaced it with “Half past six o’clock in the afternoon.” That struck me as a little odd, as I assumed 6:30 is the evening. I looked around online and couldn’t find a consistent answer. What have other bees written on their invites? I’m hoping this isn’t some super common fact that everyone but me knows.

It’s evening….that is strange they would tell you that. Standardly 6pm or later is evening.

Haha I personally would have written “evening” as well. But I’m not sure what’s “right”?

Definitely evening. I can’t imagine that being referred to as afternoon.

I would believe anything before 6 is afternoon, at or after six is evening. I would have them change the proof.

Thank you all for validating me! I just wanted to be sure that if I changed it to evening people wouldn’t give my invitation the side eye.

Evening for sure!! If you put afternoon I would think you were wrong.

that’s so weird. I would definitely say evening.

I thought 6:00 pm was the beginning of evening, however put whatever you’d like. My wedding is (very formal) and at 5:30 and that was technically afternoon, but my invitation person agreed it would be okay to put evening if I wanted.

As Dr. Sheldon Cooper would say… Pre-evening.

That’s odd. I’d definitely say evening. I was planning on putting evening for ours which is at 5:30 although now this is making me second guess myself!

6 is definitely evening and I would even say 5 is the cutoff

I guess “in the afternoon”/”in the evening” are unnecessary.
