Re: A proofreading request

  • My thoughts:

    two thousand twelve
    vs two thousand and twelve

    and afterward at a reception or Reception immediately following  vs
    Reception to follow at





    Love is the ultimate superpower.   
    It can make you weak and strong simultaneously.  



  • Let me preface this with I am not the one to be proofreading! LOL But I thought it was great. I really like the first part two lives, two friends, and one love in Christ!

  • Technically four o'clock is in the afternoon.

    But I think putting four o'clock in the evening sounds better.

  • I was told that you don't need the word "at" before "four o'clock."
  • Thanks, ladies, for the input---they really helped. I feel more confident with my wording choices now.

    I decided to research this and boy, did it confuse me. Seems like many people are divided on this subject. Well, after much reading, I dediced to keep it as "two thousand and twelve" because I have the word "honour" and they are both formal British influenced. Plus, I like it better that way & I don't think anyone will notice. Thanks for your opinion though.
