    On the time lines, leave out "in the afternoon" and "in the evening."  People will get that you are not getting married at 4am or having your reception at 6am.

    Also, I'm not sure about the "Black tie", but besides that, it looks fine.

    I thought the invitation was just supposed to say "reception to follow" and then there is a reception insert with more details.

    ETA: wow. reading is hard. Looks like you've got it handled. Omit "and" in the year and "in the afternoon" and "in the evening"
  • I agree with everything Jen said, and will add that you should drop the "and" in "two thousand and thirteen"

    I'd be careful with the Black Tie/Formal notation.  Is it truly Black Tie?  Or is it formal?  There is a big difference.  Personally, if it's not Black Tie, I'd leave any mention of the type of occassion off of the invite.  Most people know how to dress for a wedding.
  • The time should be written as 'half after' and not as 'half past'.

    It's perfectly fine to have the 'and' in the year.   It's also fine to not have a year on there at all.   As with the 'in the afternoon', there will be no confusion regarding the time. 


    If you're having a black tie wedding, that would be indicated on the invitation but there is a big difference between black tie and formal.    Just make sure that you're actually having a black tie wedding if you're going to put that there.    
  • Thanks Ladies I will be make the corrections tonight!!

    I would do the following:

    TWENTY- EIGHTH (hyphenate)
    TWO THOUSAND AND THIRTEEN (leave in the and)
    AT HALF AFTER FOUR  IN THE AFTERNOON (after instead of past)
     
    AT HALF AFTER SIX  IN THE EVENING (after instead of past)
