    Depends on the formality of the invite/wedding. Less formal = numbers ok. More formal = spelling it out seems more appropriate!

    I agree, only spell out numbers if your wedding is on the formal side. The most important thing is to be consistent. For example:

     

    DONT: TWENTY FIRST OF JUNE, 2013

    DO: TWENTY FIRST OF JUNE, TWO THOUSAND THIRTEEN

    I didn’t vote because I also think it depends on how formal/casual your event is. We used numbers but we’re not having a black tie event, more like Sunday best.

    Just pointing out that your second example has 2012 written in! I’m sure that would be caught but you never know what typos slip through 🙂

    Personally, I hate it when invitations spell out the numbers. It’s confusing to my brain and the information doesn’t stick as well. I don’t like it!

    It depends how formal your wedding will be.
