My fiance and I have to change the date of our wedding due to unforseen circumstances. It was originally going to be held in December, but we will have to push it back to March. We have decided on a date, but I am not sure how to approach informing our guests about the change. Because our wedding is a destination wedding for many of our guests, we sent out save the dates a few months ago. We have spoken with many of our guests to let them know that we are going to have to delay it, but are not sure if we should do something more formal than an email letting them know. My fiance wants to send out "Change the Dates" but I am not sure about that. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Can you email all of your guests? A mass email might be easiest (and cheapest – no postage!) You could explain the situation there, and those that don’t have email could receive a change-the-date card.

If you don’t have a lot of people to mail them too and it’s not a huge expense, I think the idea of "change the dates" is really great. You can follow up with guest a few weeks after you mail them out to make sure everyone understood and it’s all good.

Since it is a DW, I just sort of worry that some people might not hear about the change if it’s just done via email…and you don’t want half your guests flying out to wherever 3 months early! 😀 I know I’m overly paranoid and anal, but I’d suggest a combo of phone calls AND emails (for the tech savvy) or phone calls AND mailed notes (for the not-so-tech savvy). But you know your guests better than we do…d’you think they’d need the extra reminders?
