I think using the word dinner might confuse people. (I might think that the reception lasted all afternoon and had dinner at the end, for example). Why not just say lunch instead of dinner? Even if people are expecting less food, or less formal food, I think they’ll just be pleasanty surprised.

@AutumnElegance: Agree

I  would just put “Reception to immeadiately follow”. I think most people would assume this would include some type of food.

Serve whatever makes you happy, but call it “luncheon,” because that’s what it is.

Basically, ditto Miss Great Dane, lol!

Formal luncheon to follow?

I’m assuming that you mean to say formal for dress code and type of reception, and to let people know that they are getting a dinner sized meal at noon?
