orchidblooms:  Etiquette isn’t really my thing or a requirement for my guests. 

I think what you’ve wrote is too formal. I’d make it more fun with something like this. [Not my best work but I’m writing it on the fly]

———

If we’re still partying past two o’clock,

Why not pack a toothbrush and socks?

We will see you later for breakfast or lunch,

To get another chance to say, “thanks a bunch”!

 

To join us for breakfast please call blah. 

 

Lodging accommodations:

B&B at blah

Hilton at blah. 

——-

PS. I don’t think you are responsible for paying for people’s rooms.

I’d say, “you are welcome to stay” instead of you are invited. That is softer to me. Also I would say “brunch will be provided for overnight guests at X B&B”

I don’t think you need to mention anything other then the blocked room. Guests who want to stay over will, and don’t really require your invitation to do so. I don’t think you have to mention the second hotel, and could tell anyone else via word of mouth.

Iwould invite all the guests to the brunch the next day, and have a separate insert listing the specifics. Or if you only want those staying over, you could get the list from the hotel and send a sperate mailing.

orchidblooms:  Are you required to buy out the venue or are you doing it because you don’t want outsiders to use the venue? Either way I think if you need or want to buy it out for you wedding then that is the decision you make and recouping the cost off your guests is rude. Can you just allocate the rooms to your families and bridal party members?
