First of all, your wedding sounds like it’s going to be AWESOME and it’s so cool of you to take on a surprise party for your Fiance too! 

We kinda had a “wedding weekend” too–rehearsal/dinner Thursday, wedding Friday 6-11 PM, after-party at our fave local bar til about 2 AM (the only “event” where people who came out had to buy their own food/drinks), then a party at my mom’s the next day from 4-10ish. 

We had invitations to the wedding, of course.  Then my mom sent separate invites for her party the next day.  The rehearsal was our closest friends and out of town family, so we just called/emailed them and told them about it–the restaurant didn’t need an exact number, we just had to fulfill a minimum food/drink cost (and we far exceeded it).  And then we just kinda let the word spread to our friends about the after-party.

If I were you, I’d have wedding invitations (wedding only), separate invites to the surprise bday party (could you do these invites on facebook perhaps and save $ on stamps?), and email/word of mouth for the after-party and the brunch.  And just email/call for the rehearsal dinner… you really don’t want even more mail to deal with!

I would say that you should add the details in the wedding invites if it’s wedding related. You could make an “extras section” Informing the guests about the optional after party and sunday brunch. Be sure to mention that it’s a pay for yourself thing though.

I am also having a weekend type deal- Thursday wine tour, Friday rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, Saturday wedding, and Sunday brunch.  For ours, we put all the extra info on the website (this obviously wouldn’t work for the surprise bday dinner), but may work for the rest.
