The only rule is that your guests should have a great time!

BTW, it’s not an “elopment party”, it’s a celebration of your recent marriage.  Google invitation wording examples for “reception only”, and you’ll see how common it is to have a reception-only party.

A barbecue would be perfectly fine….It’s not like you’re having a traditional/formal wedding & then a barbecue (I’m all for eloping & the bbq!!!) so you can do whatever you’d like 🙂  On the invite put something to the effect of “please join us for dinner honoring Mr. /Mrs X” Very simple….and if you want a cake go ahead and get one.  I personally would get a small wedding cake (no grooms cake/keep it simple and easy)…your guests may also be expecting there be a cake.  I’m getting married in a month and will be “eloping” (parents will be there for ceremony) & afterwards we’re having a dinner, however, it will be family only.  I will have a cake & a photographer but that’s it…I’m not even registering for gifts or having a guest book.  As far as the invitations…..I will be sending those b/c I do not want children/extra guests attending…but if you’re having a bbq I wouldn’t even worry about sending invitations.  As far as the dress code…..casual is probably your best bet.  Hope this helped….
