@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!
