I would give them a heads up with ballpark like 10 or 100 people

We’re going to do this too, and I plan on calling ahead.

We are going out after and we are not doing a heads up or anything.  We are going out in New Orleans to a few different places in the quarter and I don’t find a point. 

However, in Sept we did an afterparty for a friends wedding and they had a mini bus take people there.  They had told the bar so they staffed one extra bartender to be able to handle the 50ish extra people from the party.  I think for them it was a good idea to call ahead.

We went out to a bar after our wedding, and we just showed up. It was no problem at all. Not everyone from the wedding came though, so it was only maybe 15 people in total. If you have a large group, you can probably arrange to get VIP access via the guest list and skip the line. Maybe even some deals on drinks! Good idea to let them know if you will have a large group.

I like the no-driving part of your plan. Makes transportation and guest safety easy.

Our after-party is at the hotel bar so we’ll give them a heads up on how many people to expect. Mr. P is worried the BAR might run out of ALCOHOL.

We probably plan on doing this but just bouncing from bar to bar no call ahead. It is small town so am not to worried about it.

We’re planning on doing this, and I’m going to talk to the bar owners.  The other reason is my wedding’s on a Sunday, and even though their website says they’re open, I obviously want to be sure.  I figure we’ll order a couple sheet pizzas and see if they’ll give us a drink special, and everyone can drink and goof around and then walk back to the hotel.
