You can take the “and” out of the year: “two thousand twelve”

I was also a little puzzled by some of the capitalization …?

Hyphenate “twenty-first of September.”

Apostrophe in “each guest’s entrée choice.” That’s an accent over the “e,” also.

I agree about the capitalization–only capitalize pronouns or the first word in a sentence, so “half past six” and “drinks” should not be capitalized.

 

Wording-wise, though, you’re good to go!

@KCKnd2:  yeah the capitalization is random (I solved for this by using an all caps font) i.e. Sauteed Chicken Fancaise or Sauteed chicken francaise would look much better

Pretty sure twenty-first is hypehnated…

Okay, so if the font is all capitalized, here are my suggestions:

  • “Some things were meant to be.”  This is a sentance, does not continue with next line, so it needs a period.
  • “Marriage celebration” sounds like its just a reception.  Are you inviting guests to watch you get married by an officiant, or to an after-party only?  If marriage, then maybe change to just “marriage” or “as they are joined in marriage.”  Dinner, drinks, and dancing implies celebration later on.
  • “Twenty-first”
  • Keep “two thousand and twelve”
  • If you invite 2 people but only 1 can come, how do they check their RSVP card?  Do you want them to write names in the yes/no lines?  Check marks only?  Number of guests coming?  Maybe clarify this.
  • “Sorry, will have to miss it!”  Put the word ‘will’ in there to match your ‘yes’ option.
  • “Please inital an entrée choice for each guest.” or “Please initial each guests’ entrée choice.”  Note the periods at the end of the sentance.
  • Where do guests note food allergies?  Maybe give them a line for this.

Keep the “and” in the date. One says “two hundred and four” not “two hundred four” Or “nineteen hundred and ninety” not “nineteen hundred ninety” (those are two separate numbers).

I would also make the “H” in half lowercase.

I agree with @Zouave‘s list too.
