How To Postpone A Wedding

weddingHow To Postpone A Wedding

Ah wedded bliss…on the horizon…the dress is ordered, the florist ad caterer scheduled and then…for whatever
reason you and your betrothed decide to postpone the wedding. With invitations already in the mail – this is no longer
just about you and your issue of delay. You must let people know. When a wedding is cancelled or rescheduled – you
can contact guests in the following manner depending on their relation to you.

  1.  Printed cards with wording such as:
    Mr. and Mrs. Joe Smith
    announce that the marriage of their daughter
    Suzy Smith
    to
    Jack Spratt
    will not take place/has been postponed.
  2. You may choose to send a handwritten note – in which case the information contained within regarding the
    reasoning for the postponement would – by nature – be more personal.
  3. And last – as painful as it may be – some invited guests/friends/family members deserve a phone call – in
    this case there is one exception to the relation reference – if you have guests traveling long distances you
    must call them as soon as possible to notify them of the change in plans.

Although difficult and stressful – when handled with grace this process will ultimately make moving forward far easier.
