Friends of mine who had a family-only ceremony and a reception the next day worded their invitations: “please join the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. Smith for a reception to celebrate their marriage” [actually, it was slightly more complicated because the bride didn’t change her name, but I can’t figure out how to convey that with pseudonyms!]

We’re having a reception more than a year later, so our invites say “please join us to celebrate five hundred days of marriage” (it’s actually 497 days, but close enough, right?)

How about something like:

Please join
Mr. John Smith
and Mrs. John Smith
Along with their families in celebration of their new marriage
Date, Place, Time

Or you could go with something cute like:

“They signed the certificate and now it’s time to celebrate!”
Please join us in celebrating the new marriage of Mr. XX and Mrs. XX
Date, Place, Time.
