@MommaFeH:  I would send it as an announcement of your marriage and the invitation about 6-8 weeks before the event. You should not have a non-dinner party at dinner time. Either move it earlier or later (after 9pm) if you’re not serving dinner.

@classyashley:  +1 as well. I think 6/7 would still be too early if you don’t plan on feeding your guests.

I would also try to word the invites some way where “reception” isn’t on it because people typially associate food with reception.
