I'm getting married - yay! I'm having a simply civil ceremony at the NYC wedding bureau and then plan to have a party a few days after. My dear me-fi'ers- What do you think is the best way to word an invite to a post-ceremony celebration?

It's not a reception, and not at a restaurant or other venue. I want to make it clear that we want folks to come celebrate our union, but that we aren't expecting any of the traditional wedding party trappings. (No gifts, or anything like that.) Just food, drinks, music and laughs.
I'll be sending out real paper invitations to our party and I've been struggling to come up with a good way to explain all of the above. I want to make sure our friends know that the party is to celebrate our union and that their presence is very much requested! :)
Maybe I am overthinking it?
Suggestions for wording is so much appreciated!
