It’s common to do this where I am currently living as well. That looks fine to me! Nice and clear, and upbeat 🙂

PS they did some invites only ceremony, some only reception and dance, some only dance and some to all.

I wouldn’t say it’s common in (Eastern) Canada the way it seems to be in the UK (though all your friends have done it?), but that wording seems perfect. 

BTW, the one time I have seen this done, they waited until everybody had arrived to cut the cake.  So I’d still include RSVP info so you can plan cake.

I’d change it a bit– even though it is customary in your area to have a tiered reception, it may make the guests feel less like B-listers if you make the focal point of the invite be that they are being invited for dancing, not that you are having a wedding and they get to come to the end:

 

FIRST NAME BRIDE

– AND –

FIRST NAME GROOM

 INVITE YOU FOR AN EVENING OF DANCING AND MUSIC

IN CELEBRATION OF THEIR MARRIAGE

ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 31ST, 2015

AT VENUE, CITY

AND WOULD LIKE YOU TO JOIN THEM

AT 9:00PM

 

It makes the guest feel a bit more special because you are telling them first about what they are being invited to, not what they are NOT being invited to.
