I think the time is good where it is. I’d leave it like that. Although it seems to have a typo – sixy and no t in thirty.

Remove the zip code form the Ruth Chris address. Otherwise layout looks good.

Just a couple things.  I just did all the obligatory research for our invitations.  I found that if you are not getting married in a church you are supposed to say “pleasure of your company”  So something like this (of course, all of the spacing is totally off on here):

Together with their parents,

blah blah

&

blah blah

Request the pleasure of your company

As they are joined in marriage

Saturday, the fifteenth of January

Two thousand and eleven

Half after four in the afternoon

PARADISE COVE

KO’OLINA RESORT

KAPOLEI, HAWAII

Reception dinner to follow

Half after six in the evening

500 ALA MOANA BOULEVARD

RESTAURANT ROW

HONOLULU, HAWAII

 

Of course all of this is not required, just what I found is typical.  You are always free to word however you choose 😉  Good luck!

I would say “Half passed six” instead of six-thirty

I would say half passed as well. I don’t know if I would put “reception dinner” or just “dinner”. Or “celebration dinner” might be more appropriate unless there is a party. Reception, to me, implies dancing and drinks.

I have just always seen in all invitations without the zipcode listed. Not sure what the exact etiquette reason is, but I think it looks cleaner. My invites will feature orchids too!  I grew up in HI and my dad always wanted me to get married at Ko’Olina – so jealous of you! I think it will be just lovely!!! Congrats!

Excerpt from “Invitation Etiquette – Zip Codes on Invitations” at invitationbox.com:

When writing the address for my event on my invitation, do I need to include the location’s zip code?

This question seems to be growing more and more popular lately and we are often seeing zip codes printed on our customer’s invitations. We thus thought we’d take a moment to share a little etiquette lesson with our readers.

When writing invitation text, traditional etiquette dictates that a zip code is not necessary to be printed on an invitation. A city and state printed on the line after the street address is sufficient. The purpose of zip codes is actually for USPS postal regulations for outgoing mail. For directional purposes, it is not needed on MapQuest, GPS, etc. A good rule of thumb is to remember that formal invitations should not have any numbers printed on them. If a number is printed it is written in long-hand numerical form. For example, July nineteenth, six o’clock, etc.

Incorrect:

112 North Main Street

Cary, NC 27513

Correct:

112 North Main Street

Cary, NC

So next time you’re writing your invitations, remember that a zip code is not needed.
