I’m unsure of what you are trying to accomplish with these sections. Do you mean something like “Immediately following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their immediate families will be taking formal portraits. At this time, we invite all other guests to please continue to x-area for the cocktail hour. We’ll join you as soon as we can!” ?

How about “The Bride and Groom want to remember everyone that attended, so at the conclusion of the ceremony please stick around for a few group portraits! After the group portraits are finished, we invite you to find your seats at the reception area. Dinner will begin when we join you!”

I also think that this could be accomplished with a general announcement at the end of the ceremony/group picture sesh.

Glad I could help! Miss Beanstalk was just talking about this exact problem with her centerpieces. I think she decided to make a little picture frame with a message at each table basically saying hands off! If you are having waitstaff, you can ask for them to keep an eye on the centerpieces and if they see a guest trying to take something home, they can give a gentle personal reminder that the centerpieces are not up for grabs.
