Use of the apostrophe


Is the correct wording for an invitation title: (1) Ladies' Tea Party or (2) Ladies Tea Party? 


Thank you.

It could be either way. Since you indicate this is a proper noun, check to see what the official name is.  I lean toward the apostrophe, which  would be rewritten as 'the Tea Party of the Ladies'.  With no apostrophe, it would be 'the Tea Party for the Ladies'.
