At other weddings I’ve been to, they have had the DJ make an announcement towards the end of the night before last call.

We are, but my situation is pretty straightforward, might not be that helpful for you. We are getting married at an old country mansion that is also a bed and breakfast. After the party we’re heading to a pub in the mansion and then a  party in one of the cottages on the property that’s been rented out by the wedding party. I put all the info about the afterparty on our website, I assume it’ll include most of the younger generation at the party.

Tanleggedjuliet:  We will probably just head to a nearby bar and let whomever is left know what our plans are. Definitely no big announcement about it. Heck, we may even change our minds and want to head there solo or just go get undressed and have a brew at the hotel.

Tanleggedjuliet:  could you mention it on your invites and have an extra line on your rsvp card?

Tanleggedjuliet:  We are. Our venue actually has an outdoor area they open as a bar (open to the public) during the summer months. So we will probably have the DJ make an announcement towards the end of the night, and we have transportation for everyone until 2 am!

Tanleggedjuliet:  We’re not having an afterparty per say, but the hotel we (and most/some of our guests) are staying at is also a casino and they have a nightclub and bars there. We might be too tired (read: I might be too tired lol) to go out afterward but it gives our guests options so that’s nice! We’ll probably just spread the info by word of mouth or have the DJ announce something at last call like PPs said.

We won’t have an official after party, but I’m sure some people will have drinks up in their rooms after the reception/dance is done. Our dance ends at 1am, so it’ll be pretty late. I know my FH talked about a couple of his uncles will probably be having people in their room afterwards for more drinks.

We got married in New Orleans, so we had a second line parade to French Quarter and hosted an after party at a balcony on Bourbon Street.  We spent the rest of the evening throwing Mardi Gras beads and dancing.  It was definitely one of the highlights of the evening for our guests.

We had a really small spontaneous after party. Our best friends decided they still wanted to party, and we felt like we hadn’t gotten to spend that much time with them during the day.

Went back to a friend’s house for a couple hours. We just passed on the information privately to those who were invited.

We did, but it’s a bit of a different situation.

We had a brunch reception, which went until 4 and then invited everyone back to our house for dinner/drinks anytime after 5:30.  We put it on our wedding website, as well as had a card at each place setting with another invite/directions to our house.  Of the 100 ppl at our wedding about 80 showed up to our house which was great.  We had our favourite Thai restaurant cater dinner, filled the fridge with beer/other alcohol and had lots of snacks set out.

We’re going to go to a bar nearby. I plan on putting it on our wedding website as part of our “weekend activities” page. Our reception doesn’t end until 11:30, so I know it’ll likely just be our friends who want to continue the party. I’ll probably have the band make an announcement towards the end of the reception as well.

The area we’re getting married in is really busy on weekend nights, so we probably are going to reserve something in advance. That way, people won’t have to pay cover charges and we won’t have to worry about having to wait in line or not getting into the bar we want to go to.

The day after the wedding, we will be in Disneyland- does that count as an afterparty?! Our website just says everyone is welcome to meet us there if they wish. We are going to try to coordinate a lunch or dinner with everyone who comes.
