invite proof

I guess I should get your girl's opinions before I decide to print in bulk. Does everything look ok??

 edit.. the copy and paste was looking horrible.

    Haha ok thats what I was thinking the alignment thing but other than that they look fantastic! I LOVE the small caps font thing you did! We did this too on our wrap around labels... what are those going to look like BTW? Do you need a template for them? I made mine and printed them on full sheet label paper, how are you doing yours?

    Looks good - maybe just me, but how about "Two Thousand and Ten"?  I'm not sure on that though...

    You can use evening and I like the two thousand and ten better... but thats just my personal opinion :)

    I think they look good!  Here are my thoughts...

    I would use lower case in the following places... 

    as they exchange marriage vows

    at half past five o'clock in the evening

    As for two thousand ten or two thousand and ten...I prefer it the way you have it, but either way seems acceptable.

    If you're going to put "o'clock" then I would put "and ten, but I have no grammar reason for that other than it makes sense to me to have the longer versions together. Personally, I don't like o'clocks. :)  My other thought is I like punctuation, so to me, it should be
    Together with their families,
    blah blah and then put a period at the end :)

    It's proper to say Two thousand ten.  But it's common to write it either way.  (like it's proper to say Two thousand nine, but people regularly say it Two thousand and nine)

    One more thing - is the O in O'Clock capitalized for a reason?  I don't think it should be.  This may be a style choice on your part, but I also noticed that you capitalized Thirty-first, Thousand (in the year) and Ten (in the year).  I don't think you would normally capitalize those, either.  But if you did it for stylistic reasons, that's your call.

    As for puncuation, I disagree with KST.  I rarely see puncuation added to the end of the invitation, and personally I prefer it without.  So, again, your call.

    But they're adorable, and I love them.  :)

    If it helps, I didn't even put the year on mine. I would think people would assume it is 2010, especially if they already got a STD I also agree with Carrie, no punctuation. I can't help with the time. I blocked mine out on my bio, so I don't remember how I stated it.

    No no no!  Don't put "AND ten"!  Even though lots of people say it (which drives me crazy), what it actually means is 2000.10.  The "and" means decimal.  And I don't think you're getting married ten years ago.  So keep two thousand ten.  Laughing
