Please join us for a cocktail reception
Immediately following the ceremony

You can’t say dinner, drinks, and dancing if you’re not having dinner…

Just use the word appetizers or hors d’oeuvres instead of dinner. 

Maybe something like: “Please join us for an evening of celebration.  Enjoy cocktails, dancing, and hors d’oeuvres.”  Or something along those lines?

Maybe something allong the lines of:

“Please join us (Date/time) for cocktails as we dance the night away @ (venue)”

I would just be worried that “eat, drink and be married” would make people think that it’s dinner.

I would make sure your guests know.  If I received an invitation worded like that for a 7:00 pm wedding I’d assume there would be a regular dinner.

I would be expecting a dinner as well based on that wording but also if I read “Apps” on the invite I would not be expecting something as substantial as chicken tenders and a pork loin carving station.  I think you are fine!
