I think it should be “celebrating” and you should include the period.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m pretty sure it should be celebrating.  It is hard to say whether or not you should have the period without actually seeing the invite, do you know what I mean?  But if you do use a period at the end of the first statement, you need to use them whenever you’re finishing a thought (as in after the date that they are requested to RSVP by – consistency is key).

I think you should use punctuation. However, if your invites are more cutesy than elegant you should consider using an exclamation point. 

 

We look forward to celebrating with you!

I agree w/pp it should be celebrating … and if you use the period in one spot you have to use it in all.

I think celebrating works best and personally I like having punctuation.  ๐Ÿ™‚

@LGenz: I agree with the exclamation point! It makes it seem more exciting and not so dull. I really think you should add the exclamation point!

@dearmissie: I personally think it would be fine for a formal invite. But, maybe other bee’s will have advice as well

Yes it should totally be celebrating and yes my first thought too was the exclamation point!

Yes it is appropriate for a formal invite.  It puts emphasis on the invite.

I think the exclamation point puts an emphasis on the fact that you are looking forward to them joining you if that makes sense.  lol  And I think it would be just fine for a formal invite.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t think an exclamation mark is appropriate for a formal invitation. Periods should be used after “you” and “2011”.  Also, it should be “to celebrating” if that is the wording you want to use.

How is the rest of the invitation worded?
