I would suggest:

– printing some invitations for the church ceremony (since that’s the actual wedding in both the legal and religious sense) and including those in the envelopes for the invited family members

– printing the invitation to the evening event with wording such as “We invite you to celebrate the marriage of  [name] and [name] …

– as far as the logistics of the evening, I guess it depends on what you envision. Do you want to make it reminiscent of a church wedding, or do you want it to be more secular? Do you want to involve family/friends in doing readings or singing songs? How long do you want it to run? Are you and your Fiance going to repeat your vows? Exchange vows you write yourself?

I would suggest maybe writing down a rough draft outline of everything you think you might want to include, and then play around with it: move the order around, edit it down to the length you want, etc.

@hilwilk:  I agree with @KCKnd2‘s response.  I would word it that way.  I was kinda on the same situation, except we’re concerned about the time gap.  But in the end, we decided to keep it as it is:  Catholic ceremony in the early afternoon, reception in the late afternoon including an extended cocktail hour.
