Hello Bees, can you please read this and tell me what you understand from it.
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 and lunch menu.
my main point is: who is paying for the brunch, what comes across to you?

I definitely read that if you want to see you guys the next morning you should make your reservation at that restaurant and pay for it yourself. You and your new husband will be stopping in at 11.

It does sound like the guests are paying…but I wouldn’t write an official invite if that is the case. It seems kind of rude to invite the guests to pay for something. Instead, I would tell some close friends/family members to spread the word.

this is just a blurb that is going on our website, there is also a link to the restaurants menu. Thank you for your advice ohmystars28 , I am concerned about the level of rudeness that comes across, I think because our wedding is county casual it may be ok, I look forward to hearing other opinions and advice

If you are planning on “stopping by” – it certainly reads that each person/group who makes reservations should expect to pay for their own meal.
I disagree with @AlwaysSunny:, this isn’t rude. If you sent an invitation and then expected the guests to pay, that wouldn’t be right, but you’ve phrased the blurb as a note. – An “FYI” of your plans, and let folks know that you would be happy to see them again before they take off, if they happen to be in the same place as you are for breakfast.
Personally, I think your wording is a little awkward – you’re addressing a large group in a public venue, but this is the type of conversation that you usually have with a single person or small group of people.
I think that reworking your wording might be in order. (I’d probably have elected to send a handwritten note to everyone – separate from the wedding invitation, but I like paper.)
On a website, I’d write something like:
“The morning after our big night we’re planning to eat brunch at Big Sky Golf and Country Club’s restaurant Fescues. We have reservations for the two of us at 11:00. We recommend the food to all of our out of town guests who are looking for a suggestion! We’ll be thrilled to have another chance to see you if you plan to ease your morning after munchies at Fescues too!”

UmbrellaMoon thank you, you’re right, I like how you have re-worked it, i’ll play with it a bit, or for the sake of ease I may just copy and paste your version! thanks 🙂
