You would phrase your invitation with the wording “cake and punch reception to follow” – you could have a separate reception card, or put it right on the notes or emails that you send to folks to let them know the time and place of the ceremony. 

Cake and punch implies just what it says – you’ll hang out for a while, you’ll serve cake and soft drinks.

You can let people know that afterwards you and your husband will be eating dinner at XX restaurant, and if they would care to join you, they are welcome to do so  If they tell you ahead of time you can make a reservation for the right number of people. (but that’s optional – if you don’t want to eat with everyone Don’t mention where you’ll have dinner!)

Since you aren’t using invitations just spread the word to those coming.

I would use the “cake and punch” reception line as suggested by UmbrellaMoon.
