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 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! 

ta-da.
