I know I’m a bit early with the invites, but Wedding Paper Divas is have a 25% off sale that would be nice to take advantage of. This is what it look likes so far:
Please critique away!
Also, I need some help. The reception will be in a different location and starting at 5:00. Do I leave Reception to Follow on the invite, or does that imply that the reception is right after?
I also am at a loss on how to word my reception cards. Does this sound right?
Please join us at five o’clock in the evening for dinner and dancing.

Thanks so much!

@RCH1286: The only thing I see is it should be “two thousand thirteen” not “two thousand AND thirteen”
Otherwise, I love them! Very pretty!
As far as your reception card goes, I don’t think you need “reception to follow” on the invite if you’re having a separate card with the info on it. I don’t know the actual etiquette on this, but as a guest, I usually interpret “reception to follow” as “reception is immediatly after at the same place,” but that’s just me. Maybe other bees can give some insight on the actual etiquette on this.

@RCH1286: Reception to follow does usually indicate that there isn’t a time gap. I would take it off.
The reception card wording sounds great, I’m not sure you need to add anything else.
I agree with PP, you don’t need the “and”.
And, I’m not sure that you want advice on this, but including your late mother at the very top, reads as…a little awkward? I’n not sure how else to word it, honestly, unless you change the wording entirely.

Sorry if you didn’t want feedback on that aspect of the invite. My FI’s parents are both deceased, so it’s sometihng we’ve been dealing with as well.

I would hold off on your invites. I am positive they will have another sale before you need to order them. I have found that my mind has changed drastically a few times on style choices and so I wouldn’t want to have my invites sitting around for 5 months when I might change my mind…
But to answer your original question, I would maybe consider a non-italicized font for the info.
Also it should say “at two o’clock”
I’ve seen both “two thousand thirteen” and “two thousand and thirteen.” I think that’s a style preference.
I don’t love the scrolly thing above the reception line, it doesn’t seem to go with the rest of the invite.
I agree w/PPs, you shouldn’t have reception to follow if it’s not at the same place.
