Can it just happen naturally? Does it need to be mentioned?

We had the formal invitation with names etc and the date of the actual wedding, ceremony and reception on it and then had an insert with the list of events and functions for the week (time date venue etc) Our RSVP card had a list of events on it so people could tick whcih ones they were coming to 🙂

@Stina11287:  FI and I are paying for an after party that’s at the same place as our reception venue. We did not put it in the invitation. We did put a note on our wedding website and are putting it in our welcome bag info letter. Also spreading via word of mouth to our friends and families.

FMIL is hosting the rehearsal dinner and a day-after brunch at a nearby hotel where a lot of guests are staying. She’s sending invites out for the rehearsal dinner and is putting an insert in the rehearsal dinner invitations for the day-after brunch.  The brunch info is also on our website  and will be in the welcome bag info letters.  We did not want to put the brunch info in our invitations because she is hosting it and my parent’s didn’t want to take ‘credit’ for paying for brunch. (My parents are paying for the wedding reception). 

Anyone going to the after party is already going to be at the reception, so we did not think it was necessary to invite people again to the after-party.

Just list the details on the information card? I don’t see why you have to have “wording” for this stuff.

Like:

After Party Drinks

Time/ Day

Place

Day After Brunch

Time/ Day

Place

Just put it on a different card. These are known as ‘inserts’ and you can have them for an odd things you would like to include for additional information. Usually they are small and sit in the pocket with the RSVP or are just in the inner envelope with everything else.

I am tying mine together with baker’s twine just because I hate opening up a envelope for an invite and all the inserts falling all over the place like confetti.

@Stina11287:  on your reception card do you have the option of printing on the bottom corner? then you can say after party to follow. or even just list it out

cocktails 5-6

dinner 6

dancing 7-11

after party on the deck to follow.

@Stina11287:  we made a small separate insert with the after-party information on it.  it’s just a small card saying what time and where the party will be continuing.

here is our invitation suite for reference:

Just a note on the day after brunch — if you include it on the invitation to ALL guests, all guests may expect that they could attend, so if you don’t want people who are not family/at the hotel/bridal party attending definitely do not put it on the main invitation.

This is the sort of thing I would put on my website. Make sure you list the site on your invitation and put as much detail as you want on there. Busy invites with too much detail can confuse people sometimes.
