It seems to me like you’re going for a very casual style, and that does come across.  However, I think some of your language is more childish than casual. Personally I would change your tone to sound as if you were addressing friends, not children.

Also, as a guest, I would have no idea what’s happening at 4pm – a recieving line?  a compliments circle?  a guestbook signing?  I would feel a little awkward about being told to compliment the couple (even though, of course, we all do that at weddings anyway!).

Finally, the 5:30 wording a little long in comparison the the 3-4 word activities you have otherwise listed.

Hope that helps!

I agree with toshella, the word does sound a little too cutsy. But I love that you are going for a fun and relaxed reception. 

Here’s my suggestion:

What’s going on today?

2:30 – Food and Drinks

3:15 – Fun and Games

4:00 – ? (Not sure what’s going on here)

4:45 – Cut the cake 

5:30 – Send off the happy couple!

I’d probably do something like:

To-Do List

2:30 – Eat your fill

3:15 – Play your hand

4:00 – Say your piece

4:45 – Cut the cake

5:30 – Throw some rice!

@cubical mouse – cool, if that’s your style then go for it 🙂

I really like what linquo42 suggested
