What about "Dinner and dancing to follow"?

We also said Dinner and Dancing to Follow.  I thought that it was important not only to let people know that there was dinner, but that they should wear their dancing shoes and plan on staying late!

If your Fiance doesn’t like that, you could say Dinner Reception to Follow.

Although honestly I don’t get the "not formal enough" thing.  My Fiance had some ideas about what was "formal" and "not formal enough" as well – I pointed out to him that we weren’t actually having a black tie wedding, so the idea that anything else needed to be "formal" was a little silly.

"Dinner, Dancing and Happily Ever After To Follow" — I stole it from somewhere.

We said "The celebration with dinner and dancing immediately following."  Everyone we talked to agreed that that phrase would effectly convey that the reception was in the same location.

Mine just said Reception to Follow, but we had a dinner choice on the online RSVP so everyone knew they would be eating.  Are you giving people a choice?  Ours was beef, chicken, or vegetarian.
