My friend got married a few years ago and had a similar issue.  She made all her invitations – she made two different kinds:

1. had both the ceremony and reception (then she added in some extras like a map and her wedding website etc..)

 2.  Had just the reception (and map/website… extra info etc..)

It ended up working out really good and no one was confused since she had all the information on the website about the ceremony location having limited seating.  She worded it really nice.

 I would just remember to note on your reception invites that is a cake/dessert so people know to eat a real meal before they come.  🙂

You will definitely need two different invitations. Look online for wording but basically one is an invite to your ceremony and you can include a reception card (unless the ceremoney and reception is in the same place). And your second invite should say something along the lines of "you are invited to a reception in honor of the marriage of…"
