Invitation Wording - Help Needed

Hi Ladies-

I don't post often, but I'm need of a favor!

I am about to approve the proofs of the invites for our wedding and I'm having a bit of trouble.

Below is how the invite currently reads.  I'm wondering if I should keep the "Two" in the year capitalized and if "Noon" should remain capitalized.  If you see any other random oddities, please let me know.  I really appreciate your help!  Thank you!

    The year should be capitalized but it should also be on its own line and drop the 'and' ten. Noon does not need to be capitalized.

    You will also want to include the address of where you are to be married after the time.

    So it should be:

    invite you....

    The venue and stuff is on there, but I didn't want to bore everyone with my overly long post.  =)

    some people say that on wedding invitations you should use after instead of past for the time (half after noon, not half past noon) - that past is for funerals.  i've never heard that rule before, and personally I think past sounds better, but it may be something to consider depending on your guests' ages and etiquette knowledge.
