So were finishing up designing our inviation and I’m stuck on wording..should we add “cocktails and reception to follow” or is it generally assumed that dinner/reception will be held afterwards in the same locaion unless noted otherwise? Any suggestions?? Thanks!

I would definitely add “Dinner and Drinks to Follow” — I don’t think that’s something I would assume unless it was on there. If you say “Cocktails and Reception to Follow” I would assume that was hors d’ oeuvres and drinks.
I just looked at ours and I just put “Reception to Follow”. Ours is also the same venue for the wedding and reception. Our wedding is at 5 p.m. so hopefully everyone will assume it’s a full dinner reception.

I put “reception to follow immediately”

Thanks for the help ladies! I should’ve mentioned before, we’re having a cocktail hour between the ceremony and reception…does that need to be specified or should I just stick with “dinner and drinks to follow”??

I put in an insert after the invite explaining the dress code, the hotel blocks, the cocktail hour and reception and tourist info (and I put our website).
I didn’t include it on the main invite.

@krystallite: I’m having a cocktail hour right after too, and I still think “reception to follow immediately” works – around here, the reception usually starts 2-3 hours after, sooo….they know to stick around, and then BAM! there’s food!
