I was just invited to a wedding with a morning-after brunch invitation. I believe they included a separate card to be sent in with the wedding RSVP card. I wish I still had it (we already RSVP’d). The wording was similar to what you are thinking. If you don’t want separate cards, put the "FMIL and FFIL LastName would like you to join them for brunch on Sunday August 23rd from 11am – 2pm at PlaceName" wording in between the 2 RSVP options. So it would look like this:

Please respond by RSVPDate, 2009

M__________________

____ Will Attend

____ Will Not Attend

 

FMIL and FFIL LastName would like you to join them for brunch on Sunday August 23rd from 11am-2pm at PlaceName

M__________________

____ Will Attend

____ Will Not Attend

 

That way there is no confusion as to which event they are replying to. Hope that helps!

Is it possible to do a seperate card?  If not, do something like this:

FMIL and FFIL LastName invite you to join them for brunch on Sunday August 23rd from 11am – 2pm at PlaceName to celebrate with the new couple.

For the RSVP:

M______________________

_____ Will Attend

_____ Will Not Attend

Please RSVP for Sunday Brunch below:

_____ Will Attend Brunch on August 23rd

_____ Will Not Attend Brunch on August 23rd

To avoid confusion, perhaps just have a space for "will attend brunch" (nothing for "not attend brunch) and put it smaller and way at the bottom of the page. 

For the invitation part, how about "A celebratory brunch" at the top, then "hosted by FFIL and FMIL"  below that, then the details below that.  I think that makes it a little more clear that they are hosting (i.e. paying) rather than just "hey, we’re having brunch, wanna come?"  

If most of your guests are tech-savvy, you could also just have them e-mail their RSVP to the brunch, although you do have a greater risk of people just forgetting.

Can you have them RSVP directly to the hosts?  That’s what my cousin and his wife did for theirs…same situation, the inlaws were hosting, and the brunch card just read:

FMIL & FFIL invite you to join them for brunch to
celebrate the newlyweds

John & Jane

on suchandsuchdate
at suchandsuchtime 

Place Name

Please RSVP to FMIL at (222) 111-2222.

They had a very formal wedding, so this was letterpressed to match their invitation suite, and it went right with it–no response card needed, even though it was a black tie event.

Also, as a side–don’t forget to include something about celebrating the newlyweds in your wording!

HHHmmm I didn’t think to do the wording this way!
