I think it’s safe to say that everyone who RSVPs on your website knows about the reception site.  Anyone who hasn’t RSVP’d by your specified date probably should be getting a call.  It’s possible some people won’t attend the ceremony and may just attend the reception, so the call is warranted.

Don’t freak out! I think people curious enough before will ask or seek out your website for the reception info.  I would include info (maybe directions, etc.) in your ceremony program.  I’ve honestly seen quite a few invites that just said "Reception to follow" with no additional info.  Hope that helps!

Do you want to just include an information card with e website and reception details?

I would maybe include an extra card – I’ve gotten plenty of invitations with an extra direction/accomodations card that didn’t match the rest of the invite.

Another idea in case you’re still hesitant — can you re-Gocco your already printed invitations by just adding the location name of the reception under "reception to follow"?  If the registration isn’t a pain to figure out, it might be a quick fix without having to completely reprint everything.  Then your guests will be totally informed!

I think between your website and your programs handed out at the wedding and the word of mouth are fine. No need to add anything extra! They know theres a reception –lets face it your not inviting strangers they will check the site and call you or someone in the family!
