Proofread My Wording...

Hi guys - Can you advise if any changes need to be made to my wording before I place an order. Thanks!

 

Mr. & Mrs. parents of bride and
Mr. & Mrs. parents of groom

request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of their children

Bride's First and Middle

Groom's First Middle Last

 

Saturday, the second of August
two thousand fourteen
At five o'clock in the evening

Venue Name 
Street, City, State

Reception to follow

 

 

I'm a little confused with capitalization rules. I've spent the last 45 minutes reading wording etiquette online and I'm about to rip my hair out. Our venue is a rustic Inn. Do I have to list the full address or just the city and state? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    "Children" do not get married.  Anyone who is invited to your wedding should know that these are your parents.

    Five o'clock is afternoon, not evening, so  I would just leave that out.  People will know that your wedding isn't at 5:00 AM.

    Do not capitalize "at".

    The ampersand "&" is an abbreviation, and should not be used.

    If there is no street address, just City and State is fine.

    Thank you! @CMGragain I am laughing here at the children don't get married comment. That was the template the sample invitation was using and the more I'm thinking about it now that you said it the more strange it sounds. Do the parents middle name have to be listed for example I was just going to put Mr. and Mrs. Jelly Fluffernutter is that acceptable?

    It is customary to list the full name, Mr. and Mrs. John George Smith, junior.
