Are you doing welcome baskets or boxes? You could just put it on an invite that is only in the rooms your guests who decided to stay over night get. That way the people who are not staying don’t even know about it and the guests who have a room will get the invite to come downstairs or wherever.

I would just say: For all guests who have booked a room at the hotel we invite you to join us in a celbratory brunch in the morning following the wedding.

Are you doing out of towner bags for the hotel guests? I’d put a note in there about the brunch.

Maybe you could check with the hotel about leaving  invite cards with a list of names. at front desk, when the person checks in, the front desk could hand them the invite with their key.

hmmm…..so why dont you want the people who are staying somewhere else to come to the brunch?  i’m not sure they’d be coming just “for the free brunch”…i’m sure it is to spend time with you all as well as the food.  i don’t think most people go to weddings for the “free food”,and i don’t think a day after brunch would be any different.

Or maybe you can say, “Hotel will provide free brunch to hotel guests on Sunday morning at 10am.” on your wedding website.

@Mrs. Meowerson: That would be my question too. Are you wanting it to be particularly for special Out of Town guests that you don’t see often? Would it be way too expensive to include everyone who would like to come? Does the hotel not allow people to come in from outside?

I only say this because I think I’d be slightly offended if I was invited to a wedding and reception but just because I couldn’t afford/didn’t want to waste money to stay in a hotel in my own neighborhood that I was uninvited to other wedding related festivities.

@bride2beIn2012: I wouldn’t put it on the invite, you’ll just create problems for yourself.

@bride2beIn2012: I think @Miss Tattoo: has the perfect solution!!! I mean her first idea-just putting in something additional in the invitation for only those staying at the hotel-Something to the effect that, “For those who are staying at the hotel: We’d love to have you join us the morning after the wedding @ _ o’clock for an intimate breakfast in the _ room.”  That way, they wouldn’t likely say something to someone else at the wedding-and make it so the whole 200 show up for breakfast-they’d know it was for their select group.  What do ya think?  😀

Oh it’s like a continental breakfast? Then I’d just keep it casual, not make it really a “wedding event” just a “hey, we’re all eating at 10, come down and join us”
