    I kind of think you need a comma after "Lord" and after "twelve" since it's a description of "the year of Our Lord." Oh, also "Our" should be capitalized, since it's an honorable title.
    I think you also need to add "to" in "...the honour of thy presence is requested to bear witness TO the marriage of..." Also, if you add that "to" in, you may want to change it to "the marriage of Lady Angela AND Sir Clinton" since that makes a lot of "to's" in there! :)
    Other than that, it looks good!
    Anniversary

    I've read that if you're not getting married in a church, you shouldn't use "honour of your presence", but rather "pleasure of your company", and I thought from hearing your other plans that you're not, right?
    I'd include the attire note on the website, or on an insert along with the invitation. You're trying to achieve a certain feeling wtih your wording, and that note throws off the whole tone for me.

    I don't think this is a hard-and-fast rule.  I'm honored by my guests' presence, and I don't feel that I need to have a church wedding for that!

    It's actually a hard and fast etiquette rule. Here's a link from the Emily Post website (sorry, I don't know how to do a fancy link):
