I’m not an etiquette pro by any means, but a search on google tells me that you did your parents’ names right: http://weddings.about.com/cs/invitations/a/invitationword.htm

And “junior” doesn’t need to be capitalized, although I think you were correct to write it out: http://www.crane.com/etiquette.aspx?C=WeddingEtiquette&S=WeddingInvitation&I=Grooms_Name

Good job! I hope that helps 🙂

On this website (http://ezweddingplanner.com/advice/invitations.cfm) it says

SUFFIXES – Jr., Junior, II, III, IV, are all properly preceded by a comma. Jr. is capitalized when abbreviated, junior is not capitalized when spelled in full. Roman numerals are properly preceded by a comma.”

So it would be Franklin Mark Smith, junior or Franklin Mark Smith, Jr. whichever you prefer. 🙂

umm you forgot the year 🙂 2010? 2011? 2012?

remember when your writing the wording for your year. write two thousand ten it is common mistake for people to put the and in. You dont need too.
