Q&A: Invitation Wording: Reception-Only Invites?

Q:

How do we word invitations to a reception only? My fiance and I will be married in Las Vegas and will host a reception the following weekend.

A:

An invitation to a reception hosted by the newlyweds after the wedding day would read:

Sarah and Thomas Moran request the honor of your presence at a celebration of their marriage Saturday, the ninth of January at seven o' clock Rob Roy Country Club Mount Prospect, Illinois

This way, guests will be aware that the wedding itself has already taken place.
