    The only thing I saw was was you didn't close the parenthesis in the sentence about the meal selection.

    The only other which is preference is that some people say you only use 'half past' for funerals and that it should be 'half after' for weddings.

    I think you don't put the and in  the year.

    And I left out the AT on the front of the time. 

    I am by no means an expert, but this is just what the girls on here told me before I proofed my invites. Looks good though other than that.

    And YAY for banging out these invites!

    The only thing i can see is neding a closing parenthesis on the reply card before the menu selections.  You might also consider getting rid of the "and" in the dates...but that's the former math teacher in me talking.  ("and" in word form of numbers is used to indicated decimals, but I see it all the time on wedding invites...I am prety sure it's the British way to put numbers in word form, actually.)

    My ceremony was at 1:30.  I wrote "half past".  I never heard that before about funerals.  Oh well, no one said anything.

    Looks good NCV.  I'm not sure of this, but should you have a space between FI's name and his parents?

    I have never heard or seen that before.  FI isn't going to go for that as we're going for English spellings for everything, progammes etc. and that is how they actually talk.

    If you'd ask on Etiquette I'm sure they would point it out, but I don't think anyone reading your invitation will notice.

    Looks great, and just a question, do you need Mr. in front of FI's name?

    I don't think "Two" needs to be capitalized.

    Also, for mine, I left out the street address of the reception location since the details I was providing on my website.  Instructions to visit the website were sent on a separate "multi-purpose" card.    You could just have Merion Cricket Club and then under it "City, State".

    Updated.  

    From Emily Post- The groom's name is spelled out, and is preceded by a title. For example: Mr. Stephen Eugene Hall.

    Ditto this.  We also provide a direction card that had all the info on it, so for both the ceremony location and the reception location, we did not list the street address only the city and state.

    Other than that, they look good, and everything else I have noticed people have already pointed out.

    YAY for you being close enough to do these!  I really am happy for you; I remember when you had to push it back, but now you are getting so close, and I am really excited for you!

    We only made a website for the Brits not for Americans. 
    We want the addresses on the invites as it's traditional, FI is very much into this kind of stuff.  He is already going with the American style vs. the UK.

    ditto. :)  I am not using half after. I never heard of it. And my family and friends will not know if I did any 'ettiquette' right. ha.

    Looks good. The address should read "Three Hundred Twenty Five" if the address is 325. "And" implies there is a decimal point. Sorry--that's the teacher in me ;)
