If you are postponing your wedding, the most polite thing to do is to send an email to your guests as soon as possible. Inform your loved ones that you’d still love them to join you, just on a different date. Given the sensitivity of the situation that the entire world is facing right now, it is important to communicate the new date in a positive and relaxed approach. After all, you’ll be marrying your partner surrounded by your family and friends. This will not change no matter what!
However, if you want to send a more official announcement the traditional option is to send a beautiful card announcing the change. It could be a more simple card, matching the look and feel of the initial invitation. It is important to keep it in the same enthusiasm, with the same artwork or wedding branding elements. After all, it is a rescheduled date rather than an alarming or apologetic note. The message should be clear and informative, avoiding further explanations. Sample wording might include:
– Save our new date!
– Oops! Change the date!
– Change of Plans!
– We changed our date and can’t wait to celebrate
– Oops! Due to unforeseen circumstances, we decided to elope and we’re changing the date of our wedding celebration.
Trust the power of your wedding website
It is the best way to have a more direct connection with your guests and add the new date on your homepage about the change of plans and of course logistics such as accommodations.
In times such as now, it’s even more important to remember the end goal: At the end of the day, as horrible as this situation is, remember that it is more important to celebrate when your loved ones feel safe and happy. When you are able to celebrate with your family and friends, it will make everything that you have been through so much better.
