I’d say six o’clock in the evening, not afternoon

two thousand fourteen (delete “and”)


delete “kindly reply by” because it becomes redundant with the preceding RSVP. You can either say RSVP by March … OR delete “RSVP” and leave the rest as is.

Did you mean 5:00? I think you’ve got a typo.

 Some thoughts: 

  • Delete the ampersand (&) and use the actual word “and”

  • “Joyfully request” should not be capitalized, and should be on the same line as “the pleasure of your company”

  • Instead of “on their wedding day”, what about “at their marriage”? 

  • “Saturday the twenty-sixth of april” should read “Saturday, the twenty-sixth of April” 

  • “Six o’clock in the afternoon” – Six isn’t capitalized. Should read “at six o’clock”. “in the afternoon” isn’t necessary, and I think technically six is “evening” not “afternoon” for invitation purposes.

  • “Connecticut”, not “CT”. No abbrevations!
