Hmmm…I would say to print the reception details on your RSVP card, but then your guests wouldn’t have the card if they need it for directions and stuff on the big day. You can put it on the actual invitation in a pinch, although some people consider it an etiquette no-no because the ceremony is sacred; the reception is not. I have seen reception info printed on the actual invite unobtrusively in the lower righthand corner and never thought much of it. 

My next suggestion is to just go purchase some nice cardstock and print out your own reception card (a 4bar size cut in half would do nicely). If you’re worried about the colors matching, either chose a color that is the same color of your print on the invitation (pink text = pink reception card color) OR doing a little extra work and adding a belly band to the invite and printing the reception card on paper that’s the same as the belly band. 

Before you let this drive you crazy, remember that a select few who love you will cherish this invite forever, but the vast majority of your guests will use your invite as impromptu coasters, hampster litter, and fly swatters. At the end of the day, brides notice these inconsistencies, no one else does.
