Congrats on your wedding!

Question: is the invitation for your out-of-town guests who are not in the wedding party, just the wedding party, or both?

If it’s for your wedding party exclusively, I would just say “Please meet us for cocktails at _ o’clock so we can walk together to the church.  Dinner to follow.” Or some variation thereof.

If the invite includes non-rehearsing guests, I would just put the time for dinner, then let the wedding party know by word-of-mouth or email that everyone who is rehearsing needs to come earlier for drinks and then the actual rehearsal. 

If your intention is for guests to meet for drinks, then wait for the wedding party to leave, rehearse, and return for dinner, maybe this would work: “Please join us at ____ for cocktails at _ o’clock.  Dinner will be served at _ o’clock. Then just announce to the rehearsing group that it’s time to migrate to the church.

Not sure if any of this helps? Lol!
