Teachable Tuesday {Common Mistakes Found on Invitations}

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

As a stationery designer clients rely on us to know the rules of etiquette and grammar.   They look to us to be the experts to know how to use their words and our designs to tell their love stories.  

Often times designers get it right, but sometimes they miss the mark.

Here are a few tips that you should pay close attention to when designing your stationery.

•  Zip codes should never be displayed on the invitation

•  Vowel Renewal should be...Vow Renewal

•  Do not write "and" within the year, it should be.... Two thousand eighteen

•  Also include the ceremony address ceremony and/or reception location

•  Time should be spelled out.

•  Time, on the hour, should be followed by “o’clock”

•  Do not use “o’clock” if the time is not on the hour "half past"

•  Time should always be followed by "in the morning, in the afternoon or in the evening"
12:00 a.m. - 11:59 a.m. {is morning}
12:00 p.m. - 5:59 p.m. {is afternoon}
6:00 p.m. - 11:59 p.m. {is evening}

•  Honor vs Honoyr { traditionally honour is used for religious ceremonies}
