Hmm, I might do something like “Please join us at the [venue] for a late breakfast to celebrate our marriage!”

@AlbertaBride: A reception card is usually only used if the reception is in a different location than the ceremony.

It is a lovely touch to let your guests know that it is a brunch reception but if it is in the same location then putting “reception immediately following the ceremony” and the time of day then the guests should expect it to be brunch at that time

If it fits on the invitation, I would just put it there, particularly if it’s the same venue or right near the ceremony or very well known.  

Our invitations allow double sided printing, so we are going to have the names and stuff at the top on the front, then date and city, rsvp info (We are doing online, email, or mail us a letter – no enclosed RSVP cards.), and then “Event details are on the reverse of this card, or visit [wedsite]”.  The back will have the venue information for rehearsal dinner (We are having a small wedding and inviting everyone.), ceremony and reception, with full addresses, times, etc.  This leaves us mailing one page instead of one plus a bunch of small enclosures and means we just need one stamp to mail it.

We’re just saying “Ceremony at 10 a.m. Brunch reception to follow.”

Now, we’ll be doing pictures in between, but there will be appies for folks to mingle and keep themselves entertained at that time, and we’re planning on our MC making an announcement to that effect after the ceremony. Or we might print out mini-programs. Haven’t figured that one out exactly just yet….
