I wouldn’t necessarily think you have to pay for dinner.. are you inviting them out? It sounded to me like you guys might end up being hungry and deciding to get a bite to eat afterwards. That’s a bunch of friends going out, not someone hosting anything, so I don’t think you have to pay.

Could you have them over for dinner and drinks at your place? You could cook for much less than you would pay at a restaurant, and it would be a bit more relaxed.

It sounds like you’re not planning the event or inviting them to dinner.  I think that’s just friends that happened to get hungry at the same time, so I wouldn’t expect you to pay. 

In fact, if I was your out of town friend that hadn’t seen you for any pre-wedding festitivies, I’d probably insist on buying YOU dinner… but don’t count on it I guess.
