We are doing the same thing….Ceremony outside on the patio, cocktail hour and reception immediately following.  We are going to write on the invite, “Cocktail hour and Recepetion immediately following”.  A lot of guests are confused when they get the invite and they don’t know whats going on – especially people that aren’t familiar w/ the ceremony/reception site – Don’t leave them guessing!!

You don’t have to write it on the bottom of the invitation; however, it would be nice to let your guests know that there is going to be a reception following the ceremony, and that is usually the best way.

I have the same situation and I’ve played around with wording…this is how I think i’m doing it:

Ceremony at Six O’Clock in the Evening

-Location-

-Address-

Adult reception immediately following.
