Yes, I would say lunch and cocktails to follow.

Or

Reception To Follow

As a guest, I really appreciate when the invitation gives me the information I need. A 12:30 ceremony could be interpreted to take place before or after lunch.

 I would do what you suggested  for the “One Day Only”  but lunch and cocktails sounds reversed to me as you usually have cocktails before a meal.

 What about “Lunch reception to follow”.

@janinaPK:  Honestly, as a guest I would still be in doubt and would likely have to call you to clarify.

Reception to follow could be cake and punch ,as by the time the reception starts many people would normally have already eaten lunch.
