Are you tryin to say that the reception ends at 9? because I wasnt too clear on that. If so, you can just say reception from 5pm-9pm

I would put “Reception to follow from 5-9” or something like that. Then if you plan to do your “getaway” about 8:30, people should clear out soon after, and whoever is still around afterwards will get the hint when family starts to pack up and leave!

You may not have to say anything – I am in the same situation, with my reception ending promptly at 9. We only put “Dinner & dancing to follow ceremony” on my invites (we’re not having a cocktail hour).

We have instructed the dj to call a “last dance” at about 8:45, and we will do our big send off at 8:55. This should let your guests know that it is time for them to go. If not, make sure the dj or band doesn’t linger, and have your parents prepared to drop the hint a bit less subtly!
