at the beginning, “being” should be “begin” yes?

I think the “0” in the time should be an “o” instead

The O in O’clock is a zero.

And that RSVP card is confusing…

Cute wording tho!

On the RSVP card “Names(s)” should be “Name(s)” instead 🙂

I agree with the above comments as well as 5 o’clock in the afternoon should be evening IMO.

“answer” is misspelled on the RSVP card

On the third RSVP option, “it’s” should be lower case.

I would change “Please RSVP by…” to “Please respond by….”

November should be on the same line as the eleventh

The fact that there’s no “decline” option (even if it’s a cute, funny one) would make me feel uncomfortable if I had to RSVP no for any reason.

I think in the RSVP card that the “Other” option…the period should come after the parenthesis. All your other lines end in puncuation, and I feel that the sentence isn’t part of the parenthetical expression. Maybe I am overthinking it :p

 

For:

Reception following
(name) Event Center
(city name),IA

Need to add a space after the comma, before IA

Also, recommend that you write out the state name, not abbreviate.

Okay, one last thought….your wedding date doesn’t specify a year. Might be confusing! 🙂

@blurmeblue:  It says “Two thousand eleven” but it’s not on the same line as November, maybe that’s what’s confusing?

@mademoiselleL: oh, I see it now! 🙂 I guess I glossed right over it when I first read it.
