@laureneliz87:  I wouldn’t advertise beer if you aren’t going to provide it.  I would change the “bowling, beer and snacks” line, or just get rid of it entirely.

What is an afterglow party? Is that just an after party or something more? Just curious, never heard of it before.

I might say something along the lines of “the party continues with bowling, shoe rental and late night snacks on us”  I’d for sure leave out the beer if you’re not hosting that.

@laureneliz87:  Haha afterglow to me sounds like you are inviting people over after you consummate the marriage 🙂 But I guess that wouldn’t be happening in a bowling alley!

I wouldn’t mention ber if you’re not paying for it–I’d say “Bowling, pizza, and ice-cream!” Or whatever snack you decide to do.

@laureneliz87:  Or… if you want to put a little more space between the formal end of the reception and the beginning of the after party maybe:  For those wanting to play after the reception ends, join us for a bowling party.  Lane fees, shoe rental and late night sncaks our treat.

That makes it clearer that there was an official end of the reception.

@laureneliz87:  I like the update – its so funny how tricky wording can be once something is stuck in your head!

@laureneliz87:  I like the update. I think this way you will avoid disappointment.
What a fun idea 🙂
