If you are having plenty of food (no matter what the type) I don’t think it’s necessary to explain anything. I’d simply keep it at Reception Immediately Following.

So you’re not serving a full meal but Hors d’oeurvres?  I think OP should explain that though….

Okay, sorry I just re-read the invite….if you are serving a full meal, and the reception is directly after your ceremony (with a 1-2 hour window), then “Reception Immediately Following” is enough.

My ceremony is at 1pm and the cocktails start at 6, so there is no mention of the reception on the ceremony invite and the recption card has the information.  (I know bees on here hate that but I didn’t have a choice due to family member health concerns…)

Okay, sorry, then I would explain that there are appetizers….I went to a wedding once that was appetizer only (which is totally fine!) but I arrived super hungry and didn’t want to eat more than 5 appetizers (the “typical” am’t ppl eat) and was starving all night….

I dunno though, just my opinion, do other bees want to chime in?

I would let them know in some way that they arent getting a sit down full meal, just so some people dont come super hungry! But I think that you are having it at the perfect time, you would think that most people would have eatten dinner before the ceremony. I think  you should say something like:

Reception to follow

light refreshments and dancing

this place

this time

yadda yadda.
