I am not sure about the time.  I would say half past six o’clock. 

For the state, I spelled out both the city and the state, so I would think it would be New York, New York.

I don’t even think you need the o’clock, I think you could just say at “half past six in the evening”. I agree with caszos about the state, I think you should write it out.

Our final count is due to the restaurant one month before the wedding, so our RSVP date is about a week and a half before that. If you have to give a number to your caterer by a certain date, you should make sure that you leave enough time to catch everyone who doesn’t send in their RSVP cards/

If you want to stick to the uber-formal, then “half past six o’clock in the evening” is correct.  I have a lot of out-of-town guests coming so my RSVP’s are due a full month ahead of time so I can finalize things with the hotel.  Just ask your caterer how much advance warning they need about the headcount, and set your RSVP date one week before that, so you have time to call the people who didn’t respond.  😉

Instead of New York, NY or its variants, you can simply say: The City of New York
