Maybe you could put something like “mention the smith wedding for your special rate for your post wedding breakfast”?

You really can’t invite people if you are not paying.  However, you can let people know by word of mouth, “We’re going to be having breakfast at the XYZ restaurant, which has this great special, at XX time on XX day.  Anyone who wants is welcome to join us.”  That gives people notice that you’re not actually hosting the event.

If you are doing Out of Town bags, you certainly could put information in about  a couple of recommended places for breakfast.

If I were your guest I would appreciate the info about approximate costs or a link to the restaurant’s website if they have one.

If you do negotiate a discount , you can mention it also.

I like all of the ideas mentioned above. If they will be providing a discount, you can easily make a little insert to go in the Out of Town bags for the hotel guests, to they can decide whether to plan on meeting up for breakfast the next day or taking a pass. I really like the wording that @2dBride: used, it is informative and welcoming without giving the idea that you’re footing the bill for everyone.

We will be having a dinner like this 2 days before the wedding (not the rehersal dinner). In the welcome letter we have a “schedule of events” and on Thursday it says Optional ‘No Host’ dinner at ….. at 7:00 pm. That way everyone can see each other and us not pick up the bill. Good luck.
