From Minted

If the ceremony and reception are held at the same venue, it is fine to state “Reception to follow” at the bottom of the invitation. If the reception is held at a different location, it should be treated as a separate event. Include a reception card with the event details as part of the invitation suite.

texaslemon:  Yes, you should put “Food, fun and merriment to follow” “Reception to immediately follow” etc. Something to let the guests know that there will be no traveling after the ceremony. 

Even though you are using a wedding website- understand that many guests will not even look at it, so make sure important information is easily found on the invitation or STD.
