Perhaps write “Ceremony and (with?) Cocktail Hour at 5:30” ? Then people know that’s the ceremony too, so they won’t mozey in late.

We’re sort of doing this. Plan on people showing up around 6 for drinks & whatever else, throwing in our quick no frills ceremony, and then having dinner. Really no idea on invite wording tho, we didn’t do them for our small group. But I do agree about putting something about the ceremony in there. People might show up late and miss it otherwise.

@janna22:  love it!

that is similar to what we are doing.

We are having cocktail hour from 6:00 – 6:45, ceremony at 6:45 till 7 and then dinner at 7 pm.

its such a better way to do it!

I would move the ceremony to the end of the cocktail hour, right before the dinner. I’ve been to weddings that did that before and really like the flow. I think it might be a a bit odd to go back to a cocktail hour after the ceremony. But, either way I think it sounds great!

In the book From Beginning to End: The Rituals of Our Lives by Robert Fulghum a wedding very much like this is described at the beginning.  I like it!
