I’m having a weddding cake and desserts/ drinks as my reception. Of course along with dancing. #1 How should I word it…Dessert & Dance Ceremony or Desssert & Dance Reception or does it matter? #2 Then should I mention it with the invitations (Reception to follow) and then include details somewhere on the programs? Helppp

Well.. .if it usually states “recpetion to follow” or “dinner and dancing to follow” on the invitation, then Id jsut replce that with “Desserts and Dancing to follow”

It depends on the time as well. What time is the wedding/reception? Alcohol drinks?
If there is alcohol served, I would offer more than just cake. Something to offset the alcohol.
Otherwise, someting like “cake and punch reception to follow”
“Please join us for cake and punch to celebrate our marriage.”…?

What time is your ceremony and reception?

If the reception is in the same location as your ceremony, I would just say “Dessert and dancing to follow” at the bottom of the invitation. If the location is different, you may have to include a separate insert with reception info.

Yes I’m going to have wine and champagne at least. So I guess you’re right, I need a little light something to put on the stomach other than sugar.
So how should I word it? I probably dont even need to mention that there will be light hors’, huh? My mind is so crammed!

I’d just say “dessert reception to follow” People are bright, they can figure it all out.

It’s ok, wedding planning is stressful. =) We have all been there and some of us are still there. Put something like:
“Hors d’oeuvres and dessert reception to follow” This will let your guest know that there is a reception but not a full meal. This gives them a way to plan their day.
Good Luck Bee! You got this!

Light refreshments to follow.
I am assuming that you are not planning on having the reception last through a normal dinner/suppper hour.

i agree with “light refreshments to follow”, or simply “cocktail reception to follow”. i think you DO need to indicate to your guests what to expect in terms of food (or they might not eat beforehand and show up VERY hungry). Light refreshments/cocktail encompasses both the hor d’oeuvres and dessert.
