Our venue is a hotel, which also has an italian bistro restaurant that serves amazing food, and an even more amazing brunch.
We would like to include on our website that we will have a reservation at the restaurant for all guests if they would like to come have breakfast and say goodbye before leaving. The restaurant has a back room large enough to fit everyone from my wedding 50 people total including us.
However, we are not footing the bill on this breakfast. For those who want breakfast will join us in the room under the reservation, but are responsible for their bill.
How can I word this on the website? We’ll be listing this under the wedding events tab, but not sure how to word this without specifically saying “You must pay your bill” which doesn’t seem very tactful to me lol Suggestions??

@Future_Ms.Bostonceltics: This is a great idea but it can get touchy. Etiquette states that if you invite someone to a meal that you will pick up the tab. I’m a southern girl though this may not apply everywhere.

@Future_Ms.Bostonceltics: I’m still thinking about this. Maybe you can say something along the lines of…..hubby and I are having breakfast at XYZ at 9am please feel free to stop by and wish us well before we leave on our honeymoon. That’s not really an invitation which means you don’t really have to pay for their meal:0)

@Soladylike: I understand that it can be a regional thing. In my circle of friends and family this wouldn’t be an issue of paying, it’s just an issue of how to say it nicely.
We want to basically say, if you want to have breakfast or say goodbye we will be at the restaurant in the hotel.

I don’t really think you can. Putting it down as a specific event on your site implies it’s being sponsored by the wedding…I’m not wording that properly but I think including it there may lead to misunderstandings.
Maybe on a general page in the site and not under ‘events’ you could include a cute comment like “If you happen to see two tired but happy lovestruck people who can’t take their eyes of each in XXXX (restaurant name) on Feb 2, make sure to say Hi!”
That says that you guys will be there having breakfast if people are looking for you the next morning, and that people can interupt…
I dunno….something like that I think is better than the event listing.
