Response: Announcements are mailed after the wedding. Because you will have the reception so soon after the wedding, you may want to say something like:
Susan Jones and John Doe
request the pleasure of your company
at a reception in celebration of their marriage.
date, time, location, etc.
Susan and John will be married on date in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
This way guests will know that they are not invited to the ceremony.
