Reception card wording

My FI and I are trying to figure out the wording for our reception card.  Our wedding is formal with a cocktail hour with passed hor'sdevours (sorry I can't spell) and a seated dinner.  Is it proper to include on the reception card a cocktail hour time?

Cocktail hour at six o'clock in the evening
formal reception to follow


six o'clock in the evening

or something completely different.

    Is the reception in another location than the ceremony?

    Hors d'oeuvres.  I only know that from typing it a million times in posts :)

    And if your cocktail hour and reception are in the same space, you don't need to list them separately.

    yes. the ceremony is at 4:30 and cocktail hour starts at 6 and the reception starts at 7.  The CH and reception are the same location but the ceremony is a the church down the street.
