Etiquette – Punctuation on Invitations

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Once in a while I do my best to educate our customers and blog readers on proper invitation etiquette, which is sometimes much different than traditional writing etiquette. The most common etiquette errors I have noticed on invitations lately is the misuse of punctuation.

When writing your invitation, punctuation at the end of a poem or sentence is not necessary, as the break in the lines of text indications a pause sufficient enough to eliminate the punctuation. Exclamation points and question marks can be used for emphasis, but are not necessary. Even a comma can be eliminated if at the end of a line, (not a list). For example:

Unnecessary Punctuation:
It’s time to tumble:
It’s time to play –
It’s time to celebrate,
Emma’s Birthday.
