Hor d’oveure should be plural, but otherwise it seems good. 🙂

I would just call it a “cocktail reception”, and leave out hor d’oeuvres entirely.

I think it looks great!  You could possibly add the word “at” behind afternoon but it isnt completely necessary.

+1 to PPs and I personally find the “because you have shared…” first two lines odd.

@Cote1590:  I’d lose the “we” before the names, add a comma after thirteen (not sure if there’s SUPPOSED to be one, but reading the invitation it seemed to need it) and change the spelling of hors d’oeuvres.

two thousand thirteen

one o’clock in the afternoon

(no “at” and keep them on seperate lines)

“hors d’oeuvres reception” seems better

I agree with others that stated “Hors d’oeuvres reception” sounds weird.  I wouldn’t really understand what that meant.  I’d go with “Cocktail reception to follow” instead.  It’s much clearer.

Cocktail reception makes more sense to me as well

I don’t think the D in hors d’ouevres is capitalized?  But I could be wrong..

I also think you have shared in our lives with your friendship sounds better than by, but that also could be wrong!
