Looks good to me, the only thing I think I'd change is to add a - between twenty and second (reads: twenty-second). I think adding the - is the "correct" way of writing it, but I don't think it'd throw people off if you didn't add it! wink.gif

Here's the example I found @ Wedding Invitation Wording


Which words are capitalized?


Capitalization can be very confusing when wording your wedding invitations. Words that are always capitalized should, of course, remain capitalized. As a general rule, the first word of the first line is capitalized, as is the first letter of the year, which should be on its own line. Numbers (other than the number part of the address or numbered streets with more than two numbers) and states are always spelled out. The rules may seem very silly and arbitrary, but there will always be someone who notices changes!


Remember to include the names, date, time, and location.



Mr. and Mrs. David Smith

And I agree with Courtney about the hyphenated twenty-second!
