Re: Wording on invite

  • CMGr and K&D have the correct wording.

    However CMGr, the year is incorrect.  It is two thousand and ten.

    Emily Post is incorrect.

    When looking at invitation wording, go by Crane's and not EP. 

    Crane's is the tried and true expert here.  EP is not.

    I am very fascinated to hear that one should go by Cranes and not Emily post. Interesting!  How do we know this?  Where did this come from?  Why?
