2010 Brides - Invitations

I'm finalizing my invitations. 

Is it "two thousand and ten" or "two thousand ten"

or does it even matter?

My fiance and I are arguing now about this and curious others input

Thanks!

    See and you both differed opinions! Ahhh! It's driving me crazy!
    Other invitations I have received say two thousand and ten.

    I did "two thousand ten."

    From what I've read, both are acceptable. English/grammar people will tell you that "two thousand ten" is proper, whereas math people will tell you that "two thousand and ten" is correct. It's a matter of personal preference.

    Personal preference as was already mentioned; I did "two thousand nine" & I'd do "two thousand ten" for what it's worth, since you're seeking opinions :)

    I think you might be mixed up here. Math people tend to say the "and" is wrong because it denotes a decimal point ($2000.10). Either way, the "and" is incorrect in U.S. usage. However, I <em>believe</em> it is common in British English, and that is why either is acceptable, particularly if you're using the British "honour" and "favour."

    Crane discourages using the year line (as it's usually unnecessary), but says "and" is simply used as a connective word and is acceptable if you do include the year.

    P.S. No one will notice or care anyway, unless you are inviting Irish, myself or another editor to your wedding. Wink

    I'm doing two thousand ten.  I agree with Melissa that the "and" being incorrect is a math thing, at least that's where I remember learning not to use "and" with numbers unless there's a decimal point.

    Melissa, I am using "honour" so I guess by using the "and" it is proper british - why I went british on invites, I don't know!  But thanks all for input

    We are doing two thousand and ten.  (Invitation order submitted today!)  I doubt anyone will notice the difference anyway.
