I don’t think you can only invite certain people and not others – everyone should be invited.  I am not sure you need an official invitation per se – You could let people know that is the plan for afterwards or just see who shows up after!  I’ve gone to many post-wedding after parties, and they mostly just seem to be everyone gathering in the hotel bar without any formal invitation.

I am having a similar problem in determining who will come to our after-party.  The spaces in my downtown area are small, and so we can only guarantee seating for about 20 people at the place we’ve selected.  We are inviting 100 people.  I know more than 20 will want to come, and we’re just going to wing it.  We’re going to have to play it off like, “oh let’s just go out!” “let’s go to the brewery!”  “oh good they have a table for 20 available!”

I definitely think its all or nothing as for who is invited.  it is part of your wedding day, so the entire guest list should be invited (although I’m sure  your great aunt Myrtle will politely decline).  You could post something about it on your wedding web site, “After the receptions at 10 PM, please join Bride and Groom at the Tavern for late-night nibbles.”

My FI and I thought about doing the same thing, but I’m scared I will be too tired, so we are leaving it up in the air. IF we decide to do an after party, we will just announce to meet at whatever bar we decide on, and all are welcome who are still around.
