You can have an after party at a bar or something (ie. by word of mouth letting guests know that you, the B&G, will be at X bar at 6:00) wherein the guests that want to come can come and pay for themselves.

We are doing an after party, and it is not part of the wedding. We are also doing a breakfast an will be giving the cost.

Haruyou:  We are letting the person designing our invites do this. This is something they are good at they pretty much only handle Disney Weddings. Weddings at Disney often have multiple events. We will have the wedding/reception announced on the invite, but there will be a card inside of the pocket fold with the other events. The breakfast will be announced with the time, and price. The after party location will be announced and we will have something on it like “cost based upon consumption”. Our cut off for paying for our guests ends at the reception. I’m paying about 250 per person for food between 2 parties, I dont feel the need to go beyond that. I strategically picked a breakfast that would fit the disney theme, that was quieter, had characters, and had good food but was cheaper for my guests to buy in. The after party was picked based on location, and popularity.

Yeah, I wouldn’t actually mention money but I would say something along the lines of what I posted above.  Like, if there were actual invitations or something one would assume it would be hosted, but if it was just more casual then I wouldn’t (ie. when you and your friends meet for dinner, it is most likely pay your own way and nothing is ever said about it).

  • Wedding: November 1999

Went to a wedding just last weekend and did just that. I got a phone call from the bride and groom a couple of weeks ago and they said after the reception was over, they were planning on going to the bar across the street from the venue and for us to plan on joining them and said something like “the food is good and the prices are quite reasonable”. I knew immediately that the end of the evening was on my dime – not theirs.
