This may seem obvious, but the easiest way to do it from my eyes would be "Reception to follow, beginning at 7pm at xxxxxx"

Yeah, I agree with JMA. We used "Dinner and dancing to follow" — you could add the time and place.

I agree with both posters above. If you have a wedding website you can put the more detailed info on the website.  Reception to follow at 7pm, for details visit http://www.oursite.com

These are good ideas if you want to save the paper. We DIY’ed ours and had a formal invite page, reception page, rsvp page, and map page… It sorta formed a little booklet, but it had everything you could need to know on it.

We did the same thing! We just listed the ceremony information, left a space and then said:
Reception at xx time
Reception Location

 If you’re having a cocktail hour, you could put:

Cocktails at xx time
Dinner at yy time
Reception Location

We wrote food and merriment to follow.  As JMA suggested, you could add the time and place (in addition to a link to the website for more details).  If you would like to include more info on the actual invite, can you print on the back of the invite?  That would keep the amount of paper the same, but get the word out.

I was going to say the same thing missm wrote, I’d add the reception information on the back of the main invite.
