I haven’t seen it done. I suppose it depends on how sacred and formal you consider the ceremony–to some, it might be a bit odd to have biblical verses and such followed by drinking and dancing reception info.

Personally, I don’t think you need it. Most reception rituals are pretty much old-hat and your guests will be looking to YOU (or your DJ/band leader) to cue them as to the sequence of events, so they don’t really need a script. Plus, they’ll all be in the ceremony location together so if someone forgets the location of the reception and/or doesn’t have GPS (this is often me, I confess!) there will be a lot of people there to help them out.

If you’ve got something unusual planned for your reception, like a break of 2 hours between ceremony and reception for pictures or something and feel there is a clear need to clue the guests in, then perhaps a separate card next to the programs might be more appropriate.
