I don’t like that you are switching point of view (them, us, our, etc…)

Are you footing the bill for this occasion? It seems like you would be, since you are sending out formal invitations. But your comment about buying you a shot seems to indicate otherwise. I wouldn’t send out a formal invitation if your “guests” are buying their own drinks. I would do word of mouth or something more informal like an e-vite.

And personally either way I would take out the part about buying you a shot.

I don’t like that you’re inviting them out to buy you drinks either.  I get it – you’re wanting to have a fun after party with booze… but I’d omit that part and DEFINITELY consider offering some kind of complimentary drink option for your guests – maybe a signature drink, special beer, whatever.  

 

Also don’t care for the point of view switching like PP mentioned.

I’m not clear from the invitation what exactly is being planned and to what, exactly, you are inviting your friends.  Are you and your Fiance planning to pay for all of the food and beverages for your guests at the second reception (from the line “and buy us a shot,” I am supposing not), or are you just asking them to all gather at the same place for a bus trip for you all to go out together but each person/couple is responsible for his/her/their own food and beverages? 

ETA: I see that others posted similar questions, which you answered, while I was writing and editing my post.  Given the nature of your plans, I would not do any type of invitation or flier. I would simply have my Maid/Matron of Honor or other friends pass along the word to the friends you’d like to have meet up with you that evening.

So this is an after party for people that arent invited the actual wedding? The wording of it now sounds more like a bachelor/bachelorette party. And I agree with PP’s, take out the part about the shot. And maybe do a more informal invite, or even word of mouth.

Honestly I’d skip the flyer/invitation route and just go eVite/Facebook/word of mouth.

@KristenGotMarried: I agree. 

I think if you don’t want people to get the wrong idea about your intentions (i.e. who is paying for drinks etc), then you are better off just doing word of mouth, evites, etc.  Sending out any sort of flyer/invitation would indicate to me as the receiver of the flyer that you are paying.

Yeah, I would do an email or FB event and say you’re going out on the town after your wedding and you hope all your friends will come out and help you celebrate.
