Here's my predicament.  The actual wedding is for immediate family only, we're talking about parents, grandparents, and siblings, but we want to invite everyone else to the reception.  The only part I'm stuck on is how exactly to word the invites, all the ones I've seen online are for the actual wedding.  Any ideas?  Any help would be much appreciated!

Maybe something like...

We are saying "I Do" at a very special ceremony,
wont you come celebrate with us at our reception?
Than add the time, date & place, etc.

just use wedding phrasing, only make it clear that it's for the reception - i.e.

the pleasure of your company is requested at the wedding reception of x and y... 

and if you felt the need you could include a little note like kpooh suggested saying your ceremony is for family only, or something.

We are having a joyous wedding day celebration, please join us at -location here-

or put in something like "You are invited to our wedding celebration, taking place at x after a private family ceremony"

I think a private, close family affair is just fine and if you say it's a 'close family' or 'private ceremony' I think people should understand being invited to the celebration rather than the ceremony.

Those are awesome suggestions!  I have been trying so hard to come up with something that won't hurt the feelings of our extended families (which are huge) and our friends.  These help a lot!  Thank you so much!  Grin

Check the Emily Post etiquette books.  There's standard wording for this.
