Wedding Invitations & Paper

X posted- time to put for guest arrival on invites

Hi there everyone!

I am getting married at my reception venue.  Our ceremony starts at 11:30, but the venue said that starting at 11 they will be serving refreshments for arrivals and to put the arrival time on the invite as 11 so that everyone will be there by 11:30 to be sure  Our reception then starts promptly at noon.

Is this the right way to go?  My concern is that if I put 11, there will be people coming early to make sure they are in their seats on time, and then if they have to sit there for 30 min +, it will be uncomfortable plus I will look like a diva late bride.  What have others done?  I thought people took pains to be early to a wedding anyway, so I am leaning towards putting 11:30.

Thanks in advance for your advice!
