Are fasting and abstinence rules exempt for the reception?  I'm guessing they are.  I'm certainly going to celebrate my son's marriage with plenty of food and drink. 

Is there anything official on this?

What fasting and abstinence rules? It’s a Saturday.

Per the 1962 Missal, Universal Church rules call for Fasting and complete Abstinence on Fridays and Saturdays of Lent, with Fasting and partial Abstinence the rest of the week.  The U.S. rules are a little different with partial Abstinence and Fasting on Saturdays.  

I've been following the Universal Church standards, but will make as exception for my son's wedding.
