Are you including a reception card?

On the actual invitation, I believe I stated something like

Reception at Venue at 7 pm

but it’s been a while!

We are having a separate reception card that will say something along the lines of…

“Please join us at XXXXX at 6 p.m. for cocktail hour.  Dinner and dancing to follow.”

This is pretty standard where I live (Cleveland).

I just wrote my invites, and I didn’t include information on the reception but if you are going to do it, you could say something like “reception to follow at XXXX Hall” and then include the reception card as well.
