I definitely read that if you want to see you guys the next morning you should make your reservation at that restaurant and pay for it yourself.  You and your new husband will be stopping in at 11.

It does sound like the guests are paying…but I wouldn’t write an official invite if that is the case. It seems kind of rude to invite the guests to pay for something. Instead, I would tell some close friends/family members to spread the word.

If you are planning on “stopping by” – it certainly reads that each person/group who makes reservations should expect to pay for their own meal.

I disagree with @AlwaysSunny:, this isn’t rude.  If you sent an invitation and then expected the guests to pay, that wouldn’t be right, but you’ve phrased the blurb as a note. – An “FYI” of your plans, and let folks know that you would be happy to see them again before they take off, if they happen to be in the same place as you are for breakfast.

Personally, I think your wording is a little awkward – you’re addressing a large group in a public venue, but this is the type of conversation that you usually have with a single person or small group of people.

I think that reworking your wording might be in order.  (I’d probably have elected to send a handwritten note to everyone – separate from the wedding invitation, but I like paper.)

On a website, I’d write something like:

“The morning after our big night we’re planning to eat brunch at Big Sky Golf and Country Club’s restaurant Fescues.  We have reservations for the two of us at 11:00.  We recommend the food to all of our out of town guests who are looking for a suggestion! We’ll be thrilled to have another chance to see you if you plan to ease your morning after munchies at Fescues too!”

Here’s a link to the brunch menu: http://www.yummy_brunch_menu_at_ restaurant.com
