@catkruk:  I think that if there is an entree choice, people will understand, especially if you indicate “entree”.

I agree, if I had an entree choice I would assume I’m getting a meal and that you just are surveying people lol.

On a side note, on my Fi’s and my invitation, we put “Reception and Rock n’Roll to follow”. People seemed to love it!

@catkruk:  If there is a listing of entrees from which your guests will be choosing, I do not think any further reference to a meal is necessary. 

Most reception wording that I have seen has not made reference to a meal, as it seems to be assumed that guests would be eating a meal at a wedding reception unless otherwise noted.  (In other words, if a meal is NOT going to be provided, such as would be the case for a punch and cake reception or an hors d’oeuvres reception, it is important to note the type of reception that is being held so that guests are aware of this.)

Happiness, laughter, and indulgence to immediately follow

im lame, my first thought about “indulgence” was the wedding night not food

i think you need to consider your guests, if indulgence is going to cause confusion then its a bad choice

I prefer that wording. I’m strugling with “dinner and dancing to follow”, which just isn’t working for me.

I say go for it. The rsvp with entree choices will make it clear that there will be food.

And i do hope that happiness, laughter, and indulgence follow not just immediately but for always thereafter 🙂

I’m a little nervous  about the work indulgence too.
