Perfect, except I think grammatically there should be a comma after you name.  The rule is that if you could take it out and still read the sentence normally it needs commas around it.  Ie, it could just as easily read “request the honour of your presence on the day that their daughter marries Mr. Labour of Love”

However, I totally didn’t do things grammatically correct on mine either, because it just looked prettier without the proper punctuation!  the comma looked funny just hanging out by itself after my name ๐Ÿ™‚

that looks good, can it say five in the evening? as an alternate to leave out the oclock in the afternoon..

and my other querie would that  you may not need the ‘the’ before fourth of september…

Looks great! 

I dunno about 5 in the evening.  If I answer the phone at work at 5pm I’d still say “good afternoon”, so I think it seems right.

No need for commas when it’s laid out like that, I just always think it’s good to know which rules you’re breaking!

a couple of caps issues:

Fourth shouldnt be capitalized

Two thousand ishould not be capitalized

Five o’clock should not be capitalized

 

technically since your wedding is held in a church, it should be “honour” rather than “honor”

this according to emily posts’ wedding etiquette book ๐Ÿ™‚

I just thought Honor vs. Honour was just American vs. British (Canadian) spelling… hmm.

Since everything is capitalized, I think it’s fine that way.  I capitalized some weird stuff too on mine, just to draw attention to it, rather than because it’s grammatically correct.

I think it looks fine…

Have you tried evening, or did you like afternoon better?

I don’t read the etiquette books, so I wouldn’t know anything else to say. haha.

According to Crane’s, anything before 6:00pm is still considered afternoon, so I think you’re good (at least, that’s what I did, since I’m getting married at 5:00 too!) ๐Ÿ™‚ The invite looks great!
