We are giving out koozies for our favors and they say “To love, laughter and happily ever after” We are also having a photobooth and can put whatever we’d like on the bottom of the strips. I was thinking about keeping with the same saying but I am not sure if it should say “To love, laughter and happily ever after” or just “Love, laughter and happily ever after” Please help! 🙂

I voted for option #2, but I believe it is gramatically incorrect and should be as follows:
“Love, Laughter, and Happily Ever After”
You’re missing a comma after “laughter”, and before “and”. It is considered an “itemized list”, in which each item should have a comma after it. I also personally like the look of the letters capitalized (although technically they shouldn’t be, I personally feel that it looks better, and more like a title, and in the case of a title, like on a photobooth strip, it can be capitalized as such).

@Ms.Meghann: That’s what I thought about the comma! (My mom and I argued about this. Haha) Thank you!!! I will try to change the poll to be gramatically correct.

Looks like my six additional years of university paid off after all… lol

@Ms.Meghann: I, too, am a big fan of the optional “Oxford comma,” as in the series: eggs, butter, and cheese. I find that it adds clarity to sentences.
@Mrs.Davis914: Your second option is correct, as the first option presents a problem with parallel structure.
ETA: I should add that “love, laughter, and ever after” (with no adverb added) would be best in terms of parallel structure for the second option.

The first option is not grammatical. I can’t understand if you intend “to” to introduce an infinitive or as the preposition indicating direction.
