Reception Invitations...?

Hey, everyone!

So I'm a little stumped about something, my fiancé and I are determined to get married in New Orleans but we can't afford to host all 70 people that we wanted to invite so we decided to have a small ceremony in New Orleans with just us and our parents and hold a reception the following weekend at my grandmother house on the water in Maryland. This is all great and we're really happy with it but the problem is with the invitations...

So, my question is, how do I word an invitation to just the reception?

I'm not really worried that anyone will be upset but I want to avoid confusion since it will literally just be a reception and I don't want people coming with the idea that its going to be the whole shebang.

Thanks!

    Put something like “please join us for a reception to celebrate the marriage of Ona and MrOna” and you should be good Smiley smile

    I what Caytlyn said! It's sweet and to the point. Doesn't seem rude or vague.
