I think “reception” implies some sort of food/drink, but in this case probably not a formal served meal.  I would guess it’s either casual picnic/barbecue food or appetizers or punch and cake.  Maybe have a big breakfast beforehand just in case.

If you’re asking about what to wear, wear something you might wear to church, not to fancy but not everyday jeans tshirt going to the mall kind of thing…

I think it means you won’t be served a full blown meal, but perhaps casual munchy type food.  For attire, I think a pretty sundress would be appropriate.  Like the other poster said, eat something beforehand just so you won’t be starved if the event there isn’t much food.  I think though, they are implying that it will be a casual feel to the reception, not a formal thing.

I think you are right! A day dress is a great idea, and I am sure food will be served.

If I got that I would probably wear a cocktail dress and not assume I’d be fed a full meal.
