I just wanted to ask your opinion if the wording below sends the message that it is an outdoor wedding under a tent. If not, I would appreciate your suggestions 🙂
CEREMONY WILL BEGIN PROMPTLY AT 3:00PM UNDER THE TENTED GROUNDS OF (RECEPTION VENUE).

@misstrevi: The idea is good but the wording is off. The way it’s said now, it sounds like you’re underground (“under the tented grounds”). I think what you’re trying to say is that the”ceremony will begin promptly at 3:00pm under a tent on the grounds of (reception venue)”

Is sounds to off to me too. I think that it is the word “tented”. Are you dead set on including that element in the sentence?
You could say something like:
“ceremony will begin at three o’clock in the afternoon on the grounds of *venue*”

Agree with CantWaittillMay, hers sounds pretty good. i think the key word is “grounds,” most people would associate that with outside. if you want to keep tented do this instead:
CEREMONY WILL BEGIN PROMPTLY AT 3:00PM ON THE TENTED GROUNDS OF (RECEPTION VENUE).
is more literally correct. something to ask your vendor, maybe there is a name they use for that spot, like the “west field” or something? then you could write:
CEREMONY WILL BEGIN PROMPTLY AT 3:00PM ON THE WEST FIELD OF (RECEPTION VENUE).
either way. good luck!
