    No, you don't need it. No one is going to think it's at 1am... lol. It's not BAD etiquette if you don't have it, but it's not necessary.

    Miss Manners tells in her Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior of a couple that used your wording, only to have a guest be confused that the invitation was to a reception only and not attend the ceremony.

    The best wording to use is

    Together with their parents
    Bride
    and
    Groom
    request the honour of your presence (for weddings at houses of worship)/
    request the pleasure of your company (for all other weddings)
    Saturday, the seventh of September
    at half-after one o'clock (no need to put in the morning or afternoon; this is assumed)
    Venue
    Address
    City, State

    I have the venue, address, city and state on it already, I just didn't copy it. I really don't like that wording. But I will also be including a reception card with my invitation since they're not being held at the same place, so I think people will realize it's a church... so I would hope. and it's rude to do a reception only.

    This is appropriate.

    I agree that traditional wording is best or it can be misleading to guests.  The version above is missing a line, though.

    Together with their parents
    Bride
    and
    Groom
    request the honour of your presence
    as they are united in marriage
