If I want to invite the bridal party to join my husband and I for a casual brunch at the hotel restaurant the day after the wedding… am I obligated to pay for the brunch?
If not, how would you phrase the email so that they don’t assume I’m paying?

We’re just saying that we plan on eating brunch at the hotel restaurant at 10am, and that people are welcome to stop by just to say hi or dine with us.

I think since it’s after your wedding, your inviting by email and it’s just a casual brunch ….they will get the idea, at least I would if I were in your bridal party.
I don’t think you’re obligated at all, assuming you are already providing a rehearsal dinner and dinner the night of your wedding.
As far as wording the email…I’m gonna keep checkin in on this thread, because I too need to know the answer to this question, since I will also be wanting to go out for drinks/dinner the day after my wedding with my Out of Town guests.

I am not sure on the wording… but, I don’t feel that you have to pay. Maybe something like
the hotel is offering brunch for X$, please feel free to join us …. blah blah blah

I’m glad you asked this question because I’d like to know the answer too. It would be nice to oraganize a brunch for the day after but we can’t afford to pay for yet another group meal. A few of my friends recently had day after brunches where their parents’ hosted so I’m worried that that is the expectation now.

I wanted to know the answer to this too. I want to invite everyone and even a $10 meal would be too much after what the wedding is costing me.
We’re planning other sightseeing activities for everyone and I’m going to include Sunday brunch information with it. I’m pretty sure everyone knows I’m not paying their baseball tickets.
“Please join us for a no-host brunch”?
