These are very crappy screen shots of my invites. Please help proofread them and also let me know what you think of all the wording. These are pocketfolds with 4 insert- reception, accommodations, RSVP, and direction (in that order). The RSVP is a postcard.

Everything looks right to me! The only thing, and this is so minor, is maybe two-thousand in two thousand eleven should be hyphenated? The girl who did my invitations said numbers over a certain one (forget which) are hyphenated on formal invitations, so she made ours say “two-thousand eleven.” However, that is TOTALLY nitpicky and probably unnecessary and the rest of it looks good!

Ok, I swear I tried to make the pictures smaller! Please forgive me!

Everything looks good to me…the only think I stopped at is if you have each person’s name on the reply card, perhaps it should be “Accepts” and “Declines” because it’s singular? Does that make sense?

They look great! I think thought that perhaps consider eighteenth as the number 18th as people will remember the number to get the rsvp in better I think. That could just be me though, numbers stick in my head.

I like “Dinner and dancing” better than “Dance”….same with “dance at 9”
If you are doing one person for each line…like Brooke ACCEPTS with pleasure or DECLINES with regret, add an s to those words.
Social hour could be “cocktail hour” too.

Are his parents divorced?

There may be many ways to state it, but when I was reading I felt that ‘The’ was missing in the ‘favor of a reply’ section. That is just a phrasing preference, though, and the spelling and such looks great. I do agree that if you’re listing each person’s name individually that accepts/declines is also nice.
ETA: SoontobeMrsA, I was wondering that as well. If not, it’d read Mr. First and Mrs. First Last, correct? I’m still learning all of these things.

-I would go with Dancing over Dance (I know this was already mentioned but I noticed it too)
-you don’t HAVE to include your & FI’s last names, since you’re listed as children of your parents (unless of course you don’t share your parents’ last names), but you can if you prefer to 🙂 It’s just a little repetitive for my tastes
-I would spell out “Avenue S” since you previously spelled out “Street”
-Accepts and Declines, I would add the -s on the end
They look great though! I love your font choices!

@SoontobeMrsA:Yes, his parents are divorced.
And I will be adding -s to the end of accept and decline. Thank you for that one! I was thinking of it as “I accept/decline” but it makes much more sense if you think of it as “Brooke accepts/declines.” Thank you!!

I don’t actually know the answer to this, but I thought you either did
Dr. and Mrs. Joe and Jane Que (same last name)
or Dr. Joe Que and Mrs. Jane Are (different last name)
but my parents have different last names, so I really only know that the second one works. Not sure about the first one.
