I wouldn’t word it as a reception. A reception takes place immediately after a ceremony thanking the guests for coming. I’d call it a celebration of their marriage. 

JJ and R will exchange vows in a private ceremony on June 15, 2014.

Please save the date for a celebration of their marriage on August 30, 2014.

  • Wedding: September 2013

@jbh13:  +1

@jj0313:  We did something similar.  Our invite was worded “request the pleasure of your company at a celebration of our marriage.”

Our STA said “As many of you know, Mrs. Canuck and Mr. Kiwi were married in a civil ceremony on (date.) It was lovely, but the big thing missing was all of you! We’d love you to join us for a celebration of our marriage on the evening of Friday, Sept. 20th in NYC. It’s our chance to bring our friends and family from around the world together and welcome you to NYC.
