Maybe you can just put a note, not so much of an “invite” and say,

 

“FYI, a group of us will be meeting up for brunch at 10AM on Sunday, you are more than welcome to come if you like! -heart- bride and groom”

Depending on how many people there are, could you just do it by word of mouth?  That way it’s not a formal invite.  Although, your idea of having in your Out of Town bags conveys that it will be informal and not an “official” event…if it was on your actual invitations people might think it was going to be paid for, but a casual note in the Out of Town bags or just an announcement at the reception should be enough.

I am pretty sure if you’re inviting people .. they’ll ultimately think that you’re hosting it and in fact, paying!

This is tricky. I guess you just go to breakfast and let whoever you’d like … know inthe morning you’re going down to eat?

We are doing the same thing…calling it an OPEN HOUSE BRUNCH and putting a note at the bottom “Seperate checks will be provided”.

What if you put something like”

“If you wish, join us for a casual, non-hosted brunch in the hotel restaurant at 10am on Sunday….”

If you could include a brunch menu with prices, it would be a nice touch.

I just said “We will be at *name of restaurant* for brunch the morning after the wedding. Any guests and friends who will still be in area and would like to join us for brunch are welcome!” I also provided an average cost per adult. That should definitely be unambiguous that it is not hosted.

@pren79–good idea to add the average cost, as I guest I would really appreciate that!

I like Deblyn98’s idea of putting ‘Separate checks will be provided’.  We’re doing the same thing (inviting peeps to brunch) but we are SO not paying for all of the them. I was actually wondering about this myself.  There are some great ideas here.  Thanks.

We hosted the brunch for about $300, but if you don’t want to do that I think adding the average cost per person is a good way to say it’s not paid for.
