We’re having a small ceremony with just our family, but having a separate reception for everyone. I’m not sure how to word the invitations to indicate this, but not offend anyone… I like the informal type invite that says something like:
Mr. and Mrs. Bride’s Parents would like you to join with their daughter Bride and Groom in the celebration of their wedding.
Any suggestions on how to phrase it?

I would have a separate invitation that makes no mention of the ceremony.

@Mrs. Louboutin: That’s what I was going to do, but how do I word it so that they know its just a reception? Or do I just not put anything specific?

Informal invites should list parents by First/Last name as opposed to Mr/Mrs
Jane and John Bride’s Parents invite you to join them at a reception celebrating the marriage of their daughter…. date, time,location
Linda PomSaysOm and Tim PomSaysOm were (or will be)united in marriage on DATE.
Please join Jane and John Bride’s Parents at a reception celebrating their marriage … date, time, location
Linda PomSaysOm and Tim PomSaysOm exchanged vows on Date. Please join Jane and John Bride’s Parents in a celebration of their marriage on Date, Time, Location

My brother and his wife put just the reception information on the invite and on the bottom put “we are having a small wedding prior”
