    I actually just got an invite yesterday where the option was to RSVP for two events: the first was a luncheon right after the ceremony, the second was a party elsewhere later in the evening. I think the idea is to do something fun with just the young people lols. And only close friends would RSVP to both anyway because they’re hours apart.  Anyway, that’s how they’re doing it, by including in the invite and website. Just an idea.

    I’m doing something casual like that, as well – however it will be much later. We’re just having our bridesmaids and groomsmen spread the word during the reception. It isn’t formal, so I don’t want anyone to feel obligated, we just want to spend a little more time with our guests in a more casual atmosphere.

    We just put it on our wedding website that we are meeting at the hotel bar after the reception. Oh, we also included it in our information sheet in the hotel welcome boxes that every hotel guest got.

    Gwendolyn88:  We spread the word through social media, the wedding website, and then had the last dance at the wedding be “closing time” and the DJ said that you don’t have to go home, but you can go join the bride and the groom at the flying saucer for the after party!

    We really wanted it to be open to people we weren’t able to invite to the wedding as well as everyone at the wedding.

    Gwendolyn88:  I would probably make an anouncement at the wedding! If you make a quick thank you speech or if anyone makes any sort of “houekeeping” announcements, have them mention it. I like cute fliers, so I’d probably make those up and have them on the tables or in the program. Either way you do it, it will be good. I just worry about word of mouth, I’d definitely forget to tell some people and then I’d feel bad!

    Gwendolyn88:  We did the same thing. I had an afternoon garden party high tea wedding and then an afterparty at my parents house afterwards.

    I made a facebook event for my friends/cousins/people who use fb and my parents and his parents invited their friends by phone/email.

    There was also an announcement at the wedding
