Due to our smallish wedding held in SC in October, my parents had decided they wanted to host a reception for us in my hometown in Michigan. I am working on the invitations (you''d think I would have learned, after DIYing our first set--gorgeous, but LOTS of work), and wanted your thoughts on the wording...

Mr. and Mrs. AmandineParents
joyously invite you
to celebrate the marriage of
Amandine and Mr. Amandine
at a Homecoming Reception

the fourteenth of March, 2009
at one o''clock to four o''clock

Reception Site
St. Joseph, Michigan


I am especially uncertain on how to word the part about the time we will be having the reception. So any thoughts and suggestions are appreciated!

Do you need the ''to 4 o''clock''? I''d just say ''at 1 o''clock''.

Your invitation sounds nice! for the time, I guess I''d either just say "at one o''clock" or I''d say "one o''clock to four o''clock."

the "at one o''clock to four o''clock" sounds odd to me.

On ours, we''re saying "at twelve o''clock in the afternoon"

Since you are spelling out the date, I''d change it to this:

on Saturday, the fourteenth of March
Two thousand and nine

I spoke with my Mom, and she said she liked "from one o''clock to four o''clock".

I think that works better then what I had originally.
