I would like to ask you whether it is possible to postpone our meeting one hour earlier.

Does a native speaker find the part "one hour earlier" OK? I want to suggest that the meeting could start not at 17.00 but at 16.00. Not sure whether there should not be some preposition before "one hour".


The sentence structure is fine, but it makes no sense to use "earlier" with "postpone":

postpone (v): Cause or arrange for (something) to take place at a time later than that first scheduled.

If you want to make an appointment earlier than originally scheduled, use "reschedule" or a variations such as "move", "move up" or "move earlier".

Is it possible to move our appointment (to) one hour earlier?
