I’m just adding something along the lines of “Dinner and Dancing to follow” etc. I think they’ll get the idea from that.

I’m doing the same. I chose “Dinner and Dancing to follow” and below that I wrote “Adult Reception Only” I did not want to repeat Reception twice but either one of your choices works

Yeah… You could just go with “Reception to follow”. That would work out fine. I put dinner and dancing because it sounded more fun to me.

I tried to jazz things up a bit and put “Food and merriment to follow”- I had seen it on some other invites and liked it.

I have the same situation, and just added a line that said “Reception to follow immediately after”

I think “Reception to follow” is a perfect solution

I used “Reception immediately following Ceremony” on ours.

We aren’t really planning for dancing at our reception either—just background music playing and maybe a few dances between my husband and I.  Since we are having wood smoked bbq for dinner and pie and other sweets for dessert instead of cake we put, “Wood smoked BBQ and sweet treats to follow”.  I thought it was cute and fit with our invite and the less formal type of wedding we are having.

I recently received an invitation that simply said “reception to follow immediately”. Simple and I got the idea.

We wrote:

Immediately Following:

Eat. Drink. Merriment.

And there’s also further information online so our bases are covered.
