Guests are usually familiar with the idea that the rehearsal dinner is for the wedding party only and do not expect at all for the couple to host any group events (apart from the ceremony and reception).

A no-host day after brunch is perfectly acceptable as long as you are clear you are not paying for it. The information should be included in the invite. Most guests are not burned out by that point and many of them do not get a chance to talk to the couple at all more than just a passing hello after the ceremony so the brunch idea is a great one that many will appreciate.

i’m in love with the idea of doing a morning after brunch! Even if you aren’t paying for it (which should be made perfectly clear on the invitations) i’m sure many of your out of town guest would love to spend more time with you before heading home.

Mainly I just love the whole idea of “brunch” though, its so classy 🙂

I think people gotta eat anyway, so why not offer a suggestion of where to do it, and tell them you’ll be there.  No problem.

i didn’t think i’d want to do a morning after brunch b/c after the wedding you’re tired and don’t want to have to wake up for anything. my hubby wanted it though and we made sure that it was late enough that we wouldn’t have to rush over there and good spend some morning time together as newlyweds.
