Wedding Reception Forum

two receptions?

Is it ok to have a church wedding with reception then immediately following have a formal reception?? My cousin is having a church wedding with reception following with food, toast etc then she is inviting the "chosen friends and family" to go to a formal sit down dinner reception at a restaurant.  I feel that people's feelings will be hurt when they find out they are not included in the formal reception.  Should the formal reception be toned down so that all can attend?  I have already been told that some people will not be attending if they are only invited to the church reception.
