I think it sounds lovely. Yo may want to keep tot the 7:30 time fram if it includes your grandparents as it may be rather late by the time the get home.

There is nothing wrong with expecting your friends to buy thier own drinks. It would be sporting of you to buy a round and maybe some apps if they have them at the club, otherwise there is no need. This is essentially an afterparty and people can pay for thier own drinks.

If you send an invitation, you should pay for the drinks. If it is word-of-mouth, it won’t be as rude to ask people to pay for their own drinks, however then you run the risk of people showing up without ID or cash and not being able to drink.

I think it sounds beautiful.  If you worried about providing food and drinks, you could always check with the bar about making just having 1 signature drink you’d provide.  Are you inviting your friends to the dessert reception?

I think it sounds lovely! But I do think that you need to make sure your guests understand that the celebration at the jazz lounge is a pay-their-own-way after-party, as opposed to a mini-reception where you’ll be footing the bill, if that’s what you decide to do… not sure of the best way to make this clear on the invites, perhaps someone can suggest some good wording for this. If your budget allows, I think the idea of paying for 1 signature drink for your guests would be especially nice!

Sounds lovely! But just a tip, check with the parks before you do champagne there. A friend’s small and non-rowdy reception in Seattle got broken up for serving alcahol in a public park.
