Additional Notes:

- The line breaks serve as punctuation and therefore commas, periods and semicolons are not typically used.
- Only proper names and the first word of a new sentence are capitalized. The following are not capitalized: two thousand nineteen, ninth of (month), at four o'clock, etc.
- When expressing a time like seven-thirty, it is customary to use half after seven on formal invitations.
- Information regarding attire (if included), should be in smaller font on the bottom right of the reception card.


{While these are the traditional thoughts on wording invitation wording, it is most important to use wording that feels most comfortable to you and your family.}
