    @E_Lynne615:  Half past five is considered in the afternoon.

    Are both sets of parents co-hosting?

    To answer your question, I think it looks better split up into two lines.

    Definitely split it into two lines.

    @E_Lynne615:  Okay. Because you are paying for part of the wedding as well, here is an alternate way of writing it all out: http://wedding.theknot.com/wedding-planning/wedding-invitations/articles/formal-wedding-invitation-wording-everyone-hosting.aspx

    I only mention this because I think it sounds a little weird to include the word “children” when you both are adults. Technically you are both, but I just personally don’t like the word choice.

    Also, I noticed that you didn’t use “Mr. and Mrs.” for your parents’ names. Was that intentional? It’s traditional to do Mr. and Mrs. [Bride’s dad’s full name]. If you also want to include your mom’s name, you could do Mr. [Bride’s dad’s first name] and Mrs. [Bride’s mom’s full name] if they share the last name, I think. [Edited: I don’t think that’s correct.]

    As for the rest of the invitation, I think it looks great! I love that your initials are carved on the tree trunk and I like your choice of fonts. πŸ™‚

    @E_Lynne615:  I think it looks great! I see that the Mr/Mrs issue for your parents hasn’t been sorted out, but I think it looks fine as is. πŸ™‚
