Question...Ceremony time (on invitation)

Ok, so I was looking at a draft for my invitation and maybe it's just me but something looks a little odd about the time:


Should it read: "Three thirty o'clock in the afternoon" or "Three thirty in the afternoon"

o'clock is only for the top of the hour-  so you would only need to say "three thirty in the afternoon"  :)

I put "half past six o'clock in the evening" on our invites.  I think it really depends how formal or informal you want to be.

Actually a friend of mine and her friend at computer people and designed them for me. They are trying to built their clients/portfolio, so all i have to pay is for the paper and ribbon and they will work on the design and assemble it. If you girls need a person to design something special let me pm me and I will get you their info (they have done a couple of weddings and bridal showers invites).
