We last minute decided to have a brunch on the Sunday after our wedding which is this week! It’s just an informal farewell gathering – we are not paying for it. Everyone has the option to come and we won’t be upset if only like the bridal party shows up – it’s nothing formal or required. How should we announce this? At the reception? Facebook post? Call around with word of mouth?

We are thinking of doing the same, and I think if we end up doing it, it’d either be a word of mouth or by email kind of thing. Although we will most likely host the brunch. If you’re not hosting and just want people to go to brunch together, I’d stick to word of mouth as an invite or email, etc. feels more like a hosted event.

We did similar. We just text those we knew would be around the day after saying what our plans were and if anyone wanted to join us that’s where we’d be. Worked fine.

Ours is on our website and we sent out invitations. We are paying for it though, which is why we sent out invitations, we are having it catered at our venue and needed a head count. I’m a little confused as to what your situation is; is it that you are all going ot be at a restaurant and everyone has the option to come and pay for their meal or is someone else picking up the whole tab? I would just put it on the website or talk to people you want there.

we put a note in everyone’s welcome bag who stayed at the hotel. the people we invited who weren’t at the hotel, we told personally.
