@heavenslight: If you are going to include the year, don’t include the “th.”

@heavenslight:  Yes, there are guidelines for this, some of which depend upon the formality of your event.

I had very formal wedding, so my invitation read:

Friday, the Twenty-Second of May

Two Thousand Nine

As a general rule, never include the “st,” “nd,” “rd,” or “th” following a date when using numerals.  For example, if I were writing today’s date on anything, I would write June 28, 2013 (not June 28th.)
