    Your invitation is semi-formal at the top, then formal (spelling the numbers, etc) at the bottom. There's nothing wrong with this but I altered it by taking out some of the "a", "the", etc. I changed the Reception card to fit the formality of the formal part, you don't need to tell them what time dinner is, you can simply say "immediately following" with the time (I'm assuming you put this because some folks may not be able to make the ceremony due to working on Friday). I also altered the RSVP card because you want to know who your response is from, the M_______ allows them to fill Ms, Mr, etc, with their names. I had a book with RSVP samples which I used for mine, which is what I changed yours to. There probably is no right or wrong. Other than that, it looks good to go.

    Just a friendly question: why do you specify when dinner is served? We just got married and had several guests ask when dinner was, probably because they wanted to skip the ceremony...which was annoying to me, so we just said the wedding starts at 5:30. If they asked what time they should come, I said 5:30. I would hope guests would want to come for all parts of the event. Just my opinion, good luck with planning :)

    Thanks Sue! I appreciate it!
    Kirsten, I did that part because its a Friday evening wedding and I know that some of my co-workers work til 6 that day and I thought it gave them a good idea of the time line.
