If she’s hosting this second reception, I think she should be responsible for sending separate invites to all who are invited (including those people you are inviting to the wedding/first reception).  I wouldn’t mention anything in your invitations.

I think that would be fun, it’s like a bigger after party for you. I would also let her do the invites, unless for some reason you wanted to you could offer. I would have her send a seperate invite for the other party, or just tell them by word of mouth.

If Mom is hosting, she needs to send out the invites. Let her take care of it and take the weight off your shoulders!

just wanted to add that this sounds fun and in my opinion, very well orchestrated considering the scenario.

@Asparagus: I am in a very simiar position but a little different. We are also planning a small wedding with about 65 people. He is Chinese and his parents want to do a Chinese wedding banquet in addition to the reception. Most of his family is not coming to the ceremon/reception (they do not traditionally have a ceremony). However, his parents do not speak English, so I will be responsible for inviting my guests (his mom expects them to be there). What I am wondering is, what is the timeline for your day? I wanted to do a morning reception but the banquet is in the evening – 6-10 p.m.  How much time are you going to have between receptions? I live in Manhattan so there is lots for folks to do in the down time. How are you handling that for the people that are going to both events?

I think it’s a little strange to be invited to a reception and not the wedding.  I can understand you don’t want many people at the wedding but I think that means you shouldn’t have a reception with other people either. 

I think if she wants to host something – she should arrange the entire thing and call it a party rather than sending out wedding invites.
