Re: Please proofread my invitations and inserts

  • Looks good to me.  The only thing I would change is say "Please make reservations by August 6th" rather than "Reservations must be made by August 6th".  It just sounds a little less demanding.  

    Also, I have more often seen "as they are united in marriage" rather than "as they unite in marriage" but there is nothing wrong with the way that you have it.
  • I think the "and" in the year is unnecessary. It should be two thousand thirteen.

    <div>This is pretty much a constant debate on this board.  I, too, prefer it without the "and".</div>
  • Oh damn. I have missed the debate about "and" in the year. Didn't realize I was hitting a nerve so early. IMO, invitations should be succinct, which is why I thought "and" should be omitted. In reality, its three characters, so probably no big deal.
