Ok well when you set your wedding date, you knew it was 2 days before her birthday, right? So this is a dilemma of your own creation.

What about a day- after brunch or lunch? Since you want Out of Town guests to be able to attend, that would be convenient. 

If you want it on the Saturday, I would start spreading it by word of mouth now so that Out of Town guests plan on staying through the weekend. Then send invites when it’s closer.

Since it doesn’t seem that you’re inviting that many people to the birthday party (3 you wouldn’t otherwise??), send them immediately after the invites, so people can take that into consideration when they make their travel plans.

It sounds like having it at the custard place would be pretty low stress, and wouldn’t require a lot of work from you.  That is actually the only way I would throw a party two days after my wedding.  I would call the Out of Town guests and and give them a heads up and send the actual invite a little bit after the wedding invite.
