- Wedding: June 2014
And we are moving the date up to April 20, 2014 (our dating anniversary) and getting married on port on a cruise ship in Baltimore MD before our honeymoon!
Bees I cannot praise you ladies enough for planning such beautiful weddings but it just was not in the cards for me. Emotionally, financially, logistically it was just not a feasible possibility. It seemed every time I turned around there was another grand needed for something else and in no time our budget was doubled! I was in no way taking out a loan for a one day event.
We are having only immediate family members at the port for our ceremony, but unfortunately we sent out STDS to extended family that would have originally been invited.
We are going to do a BBQ informally after we return from the cruise (probably within a month).
So the questions I ask now are, how can I word my cancellation announcement? I do not want to wait to send out a marriage announcement because we would have some out of town guests who might purchase nonrefundable airfare..
I was thinking,
Mr and Mrs Guest,
FI and I regret to inform you that for various reasons we will no longer be hosting a wedding at the XYZ winery on June 14, 2014 as originally planned. We will instead be having a small ceremony with our immediate family on April 20, 2014 before we leave for a honeymoon. We appreciate your understanding and hope you will be able to join us for an informal marriage celebration upon our return. Further details will be provided on the exact date, time, and location of this celebration. We look forward to seeing you when we are Mr and Mrs!
Mr and Mrs Pandaroo
For out of town guests that we would not be asking to the BBQ I would change to, We appreciate your understanding and hope to see you soon. We look forward to seeing you when we are Mr and Mrs!
Does this sound good? I purchased some blank notecards and plan to handwrite one to each household who we are informing. I figured this was the most polite and proper manner to do so since we are not in a position to call these guests (FI and I mostly have not met these guests even!)
Thanks for all your help bees!!!
