Honestly, I wouldn’t even put anything on the invite because they just need to be at the reception for a certain time. If you just put the reception place, and a time, a little earlier than they need to be there, and have ushers (or ask a brother/cousin or w.e) to lead them.

 

I would have a glass of wine each on hand, for anyone who arrives on time. so you could have …

Arrival and welcome @ 4.45

Transport to ceremony @ 5.15

 

In that time, your ushers can explain the process of moving to and from the ceremony site, and note the lack of parking. You could also have a welcome board explaining, and a notice on your wedding website for clarification. I wouldn’t worry about explaning on the invite, as long as they can get to Point A, your ushers and transport can take care of getting to and from Point B.

I would add a separate card explaining the situation, and I would only put the reception address on your invitations just to make sure no one tries to drive to the ceremony.

I would just put the reception address on the invitation.

I would include a separate card:

 

There is absolutely no parking at the ceremony site.

Please park at the reception venue.

Transportation will leave for  the ceremony at 5:15 precisely and return after the ceremony.

 

I would also ensure that someone at the reception venue was prepared to assist any latecomers who missed the pickup time- perhaps giving them the # of a taxi so they could at least make part of the ceremony.

@Mick26:  That’s what I would do.
