Can you post a photo of the invitation style itself? That dictates a lot about the style of writing to me.

I’d use the cap version unless your font is ultra modern – I’d have to see your invite to let you know for sure.

Our invites ended up being all caps (except our names which were in a different font) which made things a lot easier

I’d put the year, esp if you’re planning on saving an invite.

You left out option 3, which is to treat it all look a title and capitalize all proper nouns, a la: 

Invite You to Celebrate Their Marriage

Saturday, the Nineteenth of March

At Five-thirty in the Evening

Oklahoma State Capitol Building

2300 North Lincoln Boulevard 

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

 

Ya know… just to confuse matters 🙂 Anyways, that is an option but I actually like your option 1 best. I liked “half past five” better though.

Here’s what I would change in the capitalized version if you go that way:

Together with their families

NMSoonerbride

and

Fiance

Invite you to celebrate their marriageSaturday, the nineteenth of March, two thousand and tenat five-thirty in the evening.

 Oklahoma State Capitol Building2300 North Lincoln Boulevard Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

 

If you go no caps, I would keep it the way it is, but add in the year. I just think it rounds it out nicely.

ETA: Now that I’ve seen your invite, I say go no caps, I love the way it looks in the sample!

I like the idea of every word being capitolized.  It shows the “pronoun” for each – creating importance.  (I believe)

But, the invitation looks beautiful!!

@bakerella: good call on including the year… but it would be two thousand eleven 🙂

I have to argue against the “every word being capitalized.” I think it reduces importance because everything is made equally emphatic.

Between the first two options, either one seems fine – as long as you maintain the look throughout, nobody’s gonna say “OMG your invites were SOOOOO dressy/casual.”
