Hmm… I would be sure to inform some guests (close family) that you made a little booboo. Perhaps they can help spread the word once the ceremony is over 🙂

Don’t stress.

Most people just assume there will be some kind of reception, so I believe you are fine. 🙂 People will be there mingling afterward anyway, so they will realize there is more! Plus with the time and day of your wedding, people won’t really be in a hurry to leave. So you will be fine! Don’t sweat it. You’ve got bigger things to think about at this point. 🙂

At least you didn’t put the wrong zip code on your invites like me. 😉

With 50 guests you could just e-mail call the ones who RSVP yes. IT really isn’t a biggy. 🙂

@kittylove13: +1 to the emails and spreading the word, put it on a wedding website, and a sign at the ceremony that says reception to follow.

I like the idea of a cute sign at the ceremony telling people that there will be a reception of follow.

You could put something in your programs too (if you are doing them). Just a little note that says something like “Immediately following the ceremony, drinks and appetizers will be served in (wherever your cocktail hour is).”
