Im having trouble trying to figure out how to word our wedding Invitation.
At our Venue where the wedding reception will be held, there is an outdoor lounge that is usually opened as a party spot during the summer. We’re having a little “after Party” there right when the reception ends! (We have CRAZY friends and Family who love to party! 🙂
And my FMIL is then throwing us a Post Wedding Brunch the next morning at the Hotel which is right next door to our Venue. For the guests and family who stay at the hotel.
How do I word this on the Invitation?? On the Accomadations tab?

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

@aliavenue: Not really because we paid for it. We rented the outside lounge and bar. I feel that we need to mention it, other weddings we have been to have had planned after parties but I forgot how they worded it in their invitations. So I figured some bees would know lol 🙂 If we didnt actually pay for open bar and renting it out then I wouldnt say anything and let it happen

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.
After Party Drinks
Day After Brunch

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.

We also made a little brochure to put in our welcome bags that as all of these things listed.

@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
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.

after the show its the after party and after the party its the hotel lobby and … fiesta fiesta!
oh, quoting r. kellyjay z isn’t appropriate for a wedding invite? oh ok… well in that case
I would just use what @W292737: said.
