I wouldn’t even put it on the invite…Why don’t you just say to individual people, “hey, after this anyone who wants to grab dinner can meet us _______”

Perhaps just a simple, “feel free to join us for a group dinner afterward, we were thinking of going to XYZ restaurant!” But maybe tell them in person, instead of on an invite, that way everyone can mutually agree on a time/place, and it will be less formal, so less of a chance they might assume you’re footing the bill … Otherwise, if it must be on the invite, perhaps mention something like “no-host dinner party”

A “formal invitation” implies there is a host.  I would not put it on the invitation at all but rather have the hostesses spread the word casually.

 If you have inserts to your invite this could go on an insert with “extra” info like the hotel block or travel information.

Are you not feeding them at the shower?

If I saw something like that on an invitation, I would assume it would be paid for. As a PP said, a formal invitation implies a host.

I think what you’ve done is fine. Mentioning a price implies “bring money”. An email keeps it informal.

If you’ve emailed that’s fine. You haven’t put it on the official invites (as by the sounds of it those were sent ages back).

It’s more of a suggestion that everyone get together for dinner while they’re in town and not a hosted event.
