Hello bees! After a long discussion and some good news, my fiancee and I have decided to push the wedding back a week to have our dream pastor marry us. (Stuart Briscoe!!) We have wanted him to do the ceremony even before we were engaged, so when he told us he would be avaliable the week after our scheduled wedding, we wanted to jump at it.
Now comes the hard part, telling our family and friends that the date has changed. How do we do this in the most professional way possible? We have not sent out Save the Dates yet, so no problems there, but my mom has told some family members already and I am worried they have already made travel plans.
Has anyone ever had to do this? How do I tell them respectfully that we have changed it and I’m not an indecisive twit?

We’ve changed our date three times. If you haven’t sent anything, you don’t really need to worry about it. Just tell those who need to know. They won’t judge! Everyone understands complications!

Hopefully those who may have already bought tickets will just get time for a longer visit? Other than that, I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m glad that you will have the pastor you want to marry you!

Do you have anything booked yet? If you do I would also check with them to see if they can change the date.

Thanks everyone! I’m super worried because we are at the 6 month mark, is that too soon to start making these changes?
Thank you for the reassurance everyone. And we did check with our vendors and thankfully they are willing to slide our deposit over to the new date. Phew!

@Alli259 good advice!
We changed our date, church and venue. I think you can totally do it, brides have planned entire weddings in just 6 months. You’ve been planning all along, and now you’re giving yourself an additional week, score! No worries, and congrats 🙂
