    It sounds like you are trying to politely suggest to the invited that they be punctual? If so, you might say:

    Please arrive at the party on time.

    Even then, out of context, it sounds odd. Parties often are unstructured, so on-time arrival isn't a requirement. You might add:

    Because we are presenting awards, please be sure to arrive at the party on time.
