We’re pretty much doing the exact same thing! My FIs in the USAF so we have lots of ppl co,ing into town! We’re gonna do brunch the next day and were just doing word of mouth.. I’ve mentioned it to people already and we’ll mention it again the day of.. We have almost all the guests staying at one hotel and I’m thinking we might just reserve a room at the buffet so we don’t have to make a specific reservation, do u have a particular restaurant in mind? Could you just tell them an approximate number?

We are doing this, we just put it on our website, and specifically stated it wasn’t hosted [they would have to pay for their own meal.

@desiree.0615:  We’re doing this, and we’re tying on a tag with the brunch info to our welcome bags (tags are going to be printed at home, cut on a scrapbook cutter and tied on by hand).

I second the evite or do a word of mouth. You’re going to be very busy with the wedding, I’d recommend putting your mom, MIL or a trusted person in charge of getting a head count.

Word of mouth should be okay

@jenilynevette:  +1 we did the same – it’s on our website and I tried very carefully to word it so that it isn’t our tab. heres what i put:

We know many of our guests are from out of town and we would love to join you for brunch before you make your way home. So we may say our goodbyes, we will be stopping by Big Sky Golf and Country Club’s restaurant Fescues at 11:00 am. So gather your party, grab a table and we’ll see you there. Follow the link below to see Fescues breakfast menu. 

I made an entirely seperate tab that says Sunday Brunch with this phrase ^ and then a link to the menu with prices. I will probably talk to guests as RSVPs come in and get the general count so I can let the restaurant have a heads up. Maybe they will throw on a buffet because it will just be easier for them…who knows

I put this, was a little blunt but I didn’t want any confusion, we put it located under our “wedding timeline”, which had times for rehearsal dinner, decorating, ceremony, reception, and next day lunch.

All guests staying at the Holiday Inn Express should be out of their rooms by noon. Everyone is welcome to join us at Round the Clock for an after-wedding lunch, however, please know that is will NOT be catered, and everyone will be paying for their own meal.

Ours was really casual & organised by my IL’s at their house. They just spread the word by mouth and people found their way there.

I have to tell you, I was SO exausted by the wedding (we slept 3 hours before heading over) I didn’t talk to a single person. I just curled up on the couch half-made and watched the brunch happen.

We’re doing a morning after brunch! We debated a lot of options but ended up deciding o DIY the food and serve it under the tent that we already rented for the wedding. Right now we’re going to keep it simple with muffins, pastries, bagels, cream cheese, jams, fruit, cereal, milk, OJ, coffee. If we get ambitious we may try some hot food you can make in bulk and keep warm in chaffing dishes like scrambled eggs, biscuits (frozen or canned kind) and gravy, and sausage.  And secretly hoping we have budget to have mimosas. I really love mimmosas.

We put this on our save the dates and it will be on the “Extra Info” page of the invitation, and it will be on the website. But I’ve also seen this work by just spreading word of mouth at the wedding.
