I dont think the date needs a capital letter and also I would include the year. and since you decided to put 5 o’clock in the evening for the reception, it seems odd that you didnt put 3 o’clock in the afternoon for the ceremony.

I agree with @bells‘s comments. A couple other comments:
–I wouldn’t capitalize “adult”
–“respectfully, an adult reception will be held…” sounded a bit strange to me. I think that’s some kind of dangling modifier (is the reception going to be held respectfully?). I get what you’re trying to say, though, and I can’t really think of a better way to do it. This comment isn’t turning out to be very helpful! 🙂
–Why does the guy get a last name but you don’t? Will your parents be listed as hosting?

yeah I wasn’t sure how to word the reception part… it’s an adult only reception, so I’m trying not to make it sound rude :/ I don’t know!

-I’d spell out five o’clock – especially since you spelled at three o’ clock.
-I’d think you’d put your last name since you put the groom’s last name
-I could be wrong- but I don’t think you’d capitalize the two in the year.
-I’m with the PP- the Respectfully, an adult recpetion sounds funny. If you end up keeping it worded that way I’d make adult lowercase.

@ForeverBlessed: Yeah, I know. I like that you’re being really polite about it… I guess just keep it as is; ignore what I said. 🙂 If I come up with something genius, I’ll post it here.

(PS- Capitalization does not matter, because you can’t tell what’s capitalized with the font that I’m using -haha)

yeah it looks better now. You could but the year on the same line as the date if you want. but it looks fine to me now. I agree about the respectfully part.
I would just put, An adult reception will be held… and leave out the respectfully part. I know what you mean about not wanting to be rude, but to be honest some people with kids will be offended no matter how nicely you say it. Thats what we put on our invites. and on the additional insert we put Adults only please

I’ve seen the adult reception on an insert and just simply stated that an adult recpetion will take place at XXXX at X time.

I saw someone put “Respectfully, an Adult’s Affair only please”
on their insert before.. what do you think of that? Yes or No?
