Yet another invite proofing needed

Hi everybody,
So John and I are getting married in October and I'm ordering my invitations at weddingpaperdiva.com
I have a question regarding the wording. Mainly, I'm just taking what is already on the invitation, is that alright, or should I come up with something creative?
Also, since we're over 30, we were thinking of not mentioning the parents, especially since we're paying for most of the wedding.
Also on the response card, it's buffet, so what should I put on the card? And how do I specify if it's just one or two people coming?
Input please! Thanks.

Re: Yet another invite proofing needed

  • it should read two thousand ten. the AND isn't necessary. otherwise it looks pretty good!

  • I personally prefer marriage instead of "union" - it makes it sound like its a civil ceremony, not sure if that's the tone of your wedding though.

  • Thanks for the input. I do prefer marriage too. Are you ladies putting quotes in your invitations?
  • It should be half AFTER and not half PAST eleven o' clock.  Past is reserved for funerals.

    Other than that it's fine but rather casual.  You could also just use the wording:

    The pleasure of your company is requested at the marriage of:

    I'd avoid quotes in the invitation.  That gets extra wordy and hard to read.
  • the "and" in the year is kind of debated, however you think it looks best would be fine.
