this has been covered in other threads, but i’m too lazy to look them up.  sticklers seem to think it’s two thousand ten (like you would never say nineteen ninety and six for 1996) although i’ve seen professional invitations that use two thousand and ten.  one thing i did was to google fancy stationers and see how they worded their portfolio and sample invites.  if i saw something worded the way i wanted to word it, i used it as the green light.

nineteen hundred and ninety six would probably have been the more accurate example.  sorry, i’m tired and should’ve gone to bed…darn addictive bee.

I think you can use either. On ours we used the “and”. I’m looking @ a friend’s invite & they opted to nix it.

AH!  This is one of my favorite questions, especially because I screwed it up on my own invites.  The word “and” denotes a decimal point, so it should (technically) be “two thousand ten”.  Adding in the “and” makes the ten part tenths.  However, I’m a nerd, and no one will notice.  Hell, I didn’t even notice it on MY OWN INVITATIONS.  :):):)

Go with it. No one is going to really notice and if I heard “two thousand and ten” I totally know what that means ๐Ÿ™‚

Either is apparently acceptable in grammar. In math, using the “and” typically gives an implication that you mean 2,000.10 and not 2010. Just something to consider.

Others are correct when they say to nix the “and” but so many people think including the “and” is correct anyway, that I’m sure no one will notice whatever you decide to do.

This was like the ONE thing my nerdy husband even cared about with the planning. The weddingpaperdivas site automatically puts the “and” as a default. He went on a rant about how wrong that is. Like I said, nerd.
