I think it looks great, however since your wording is formal for the invite itself, I would spell out “twenty-ninth”
And “Accommodations” is spelled with 2 m’s. I almost made the same mistake on mine!

it all looks GREAT but…i dont understand the RSVP card…

The RSVP says: (Your Name(s()
But I think the parenthesis after the “s” should go the other direction: (Your Name(s))

@daniellealys, it’s a mad-lib RSVP card, kinda like a joke.
oh and thanks for the note about the “your names”.
though, I am looking moreso for feedback on the wording?

I feel like the “God and man” part sounds strange. Maybe change it to “before their family, friends and God”?

Some of my guests would have a really hard time understanding the RSVP card. I’m sure you know your guests well enough to determine if they will understand how to fill it out or not.
This is just a preference, but for the reception part, if you are actually writing “reception” as the header for that section, I would say “Please join us for dessert and dancing following the ceremony!” just so you are duplicating what you already said. But that’s really just a preference thing…

I like the part of before God and man and wrote that part intentionally simply because of our Christian faith, and our families faith.
@eva, no I just put the headers so you’d know which part is which. We’re actually putting all the different parts on inserts inside a pocket-fold invite.

The only thing I would change is to put the bride’s name first on the invite. 🙂
And as other people have pointed out, the RSVP card might confuse some of your guests. However if you want to keep the idea, then keep it!

why would I put the brides name first?
Post # 13
Having the bride’s name first is just a long-standing tradition. There are a few specific reasons for it as well:
– Most of the ceremony and reception details are planned by the bride and/or her family.
– Traditionally, the bride’s family foots the majority of the bill.
– The old chivalry rule of “ladies first.”
Every invitation I’ve seen had the bride’s name listed first. It’s just one of those rules of thumb that people still follow. However, if you’re not one to follow tradition, then by all means list his name first! You may get a question or two from your guests about it though.
