invite people to a "celebration of the marriage" or a "blessing of the marriage". A celebration says to me that you are already married and are just having a reception now. A blessing would signify that you were planning on having vows (if the first time you were married by a JOP but now wanted to have a religious figure perform a ceremony then blessing would be an appropriate way to signify that)

When is my wedding
