- Wedding: October 2015
I have not sent Save the Dates, or Inivitations. However, I did tell several friends basic plans about my upcoming wedding and how I definitely planned to invite them.
Well, since I had thought everything was settled and good to go-all hell drama has broken loose. I don’t want to go through with the wedding and reception we had planned.
FI and I are talking about leaving the church ceremony basically unchanged, but inviting less guests (only because their “reception” room can only hold about 50) so FI and I thought about just doing a cake and punch (no alcohol allowed in church) mini reception right after the ceremony. For our immediate family and wedding party (if we even still do that) we would just go out for a nice dinner in the evening.
Originally, we were doing the chuch wedding, wedding party, and having a seated dinner reception in the Hilton’s ballroom, DJ, etc. We haven’t cancelled anything yet, but are really leaning toward a much simpler idea. It will be so much less stressful, and so much cheaper! I had accepted the cost of the original plan, but after everything starting going downhill (friend and family drama) it seems even less worthwhile to spend all that money.
What is the best approach for basically telling these friends of mine that I had basically already invited tha we are drastically changing our plans? I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.
