“Reception immediately following ceremony”…or anything similar to that.

I don’t think you need to mention alcohol or dancing.

Agree 100% with @CoffeeandCream: there is no need to give further details (infact mentioning money in any way shape or form… ie Cash Bar… would be considered rude).

Trust me, your Guests will figure it all out on their own.

If you have a Wedding Website you could go into more detail there (give a tentative schedule of events)… BUT really it isn’t necessary.  You are the Host, the Guests will naturally “go with the flow”

I am in the same situation as you and only offering beer and wine. I am keeping my reception card extremely simple with: 


Please join us after the ceremony for dinner, drinks and dancing.


<Venu address and time>


Like the poster said above me, guests figure out on their own whats being offered etc and just beer and wine is pretty standard.
