    Default Need confirmation on the grammer of my wedding invite

    Hi,

    Just wanted to be double sure that the below wedding invite is without any grammer mistakes. Also please let me know how to remove the redundancy in the date.
    Kindly assist.

    Dear Friends,

    Together we spent time so memorable not knowing that 27 years of
    bachelor life rolled by
    Now on Friday, XXth Dec 2012,
    I resign my bachelor life and
    step into a new beginning of wedded life with
    XXXXXX
    Nothing would give me immense pleasure
    than to have you on the occasion.
    On Friday, XXth Dec 2012 as your clock creeps between
    10:05 am to 10:45 am

    The wording of your invitation is rather unusual and flowery. Are you sending it to native English speakers or to your family and friends who are native Kannada speakers but understand English?

    My suggestion might be:

    My 27 enjoyable years as a bachelor are about to come to an end. On Friday, XXth of December 2012, I will leave that bachelor life behind and step into a whole new life of wedded bliss with XXXXXXXX.
    Nothing would give me more pleasure than to share this happy occasion with you.
    Please attend at [exact time].

    Perhaps your culture does not have a specific time for weddings but to me, it sounds very odd to ask people to come sometime between 10.05 and 10.45. Surely you need them to be there before the actual wedding ceremony takes place.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
