    I like this better.

    Please join us for the festivities at our reception!

    Cocktail hour starts at four o’clock.

    A buffet-style dinner will be served at five o’clock.

    We will continue dancing until eleven-thirty.

    Is there a time gap between the end of your ceremony and the cocktail hour? I think you can leave out the end time. (and possibly the dinner time, you don’t want people to miss most of the cocktail hour by thinking they can come late) I would do: Please join us for a reception at (address) starting at 4 pm. Dinner and dancing to follow.

    Or just: Please join us as we continue celebrating at 4 pm at (address) for dinner and dancing.

    I think all the details are not necessary–people will be there, they just need to know what time to be where and whether they should eat before hand.

    Just my $0.02.

    I don’t think all the details are necessary. The reception card should really only indicate when and where and that there is a dinner.

    I’d do someting like:

    Please join us for dinner and dancing

    Time

    Place

    There’s no reason to give the timeline and especially the endtime.

    @soontobeMrsBoo:  I pretty much agree. Leave off the time details unless there is a gap post-ceremony.

    I agree with PPs– I would just say, cocktail hour starts at 4pm, dinner and dancing to follow!  Or some variation.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  This, exactly.  It’s too cluttered with all the times in there.
