@ambernicolen:  Did you post the exact time of the previous ceremony time?  I’m almost thinking that if the new time is going to be 30 minutes later, you don’t need to worry about it.

In any rate, I’m not sure about a poem though, I’m thinking just a simple note would suffice, something clear and to the point.

The proper-etiquette thing to do with a time-change is to use a card, colour and format that closely matches the original invitation, and simply notify the change. So, if you sent formal “requests the honour of your presence” type invitations, the card would simply read “Mr and Mrs Parents Nicolen / wish to give notice that their daughter’s wedding / on the eighth of June / will take place at three o’clock instead of half after two“. If you used the “we hope you will join us” type of informal invitation, you use note paper and write “we will be having the wedding at three o’clock instead of half after two as we told you earlier”.

On the other hand, if you have your heart set on a verse, you had best let us know what the actual times are so that if any of us have a talent for doggerel we can play around with rhyming and scansion and maybe come up with something clever.
