I would just say:

Dear [whoever],

The date 29 Dec, 2014 which we had scheduled for our wedding is unfortunately going to have to be moved up due to some setbacks. We will send out a new Save the Date as soon as we choose a new date. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We hope to see you at our upcoming wedding!

Is that okay? I’m not a professional in postponement writing…keep it simple, just don’t make the reader panic, and make sure they know it has nothing to do with your personal relationship with your Fiance.

Dear Family and Friends,

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our wedding has been postponed to a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and look forward to celebrating our marriage/union with you in the future.

PS – Please disregard our Save the Dates and stay tuned for our newly chosen date.

Best regards,

The Torpedo Factory and Fiance

Oh dear. You sould send a save the date  9 months-1 year in advance. It looks like you sent your Save the Date almost 18 months in advance—way to early. 

I agree with both of the wordings above     ^ 

Make sure when you set a date again that you pick a venue, put deposit down, and send a dave the date one year in advance to make sure a postponement doesn’t happen again.

We had to postpone due to astupid fireworks ceremony on the same night meaning no one could get to our vebue due to street closures. We made a cute little poem up to make light of the situation and printed it on postcards (they jad bunnies on them cos it was easter time)

“Though we itch to get hitched 

we encountered a glitch

Causing our brows to furrow 

We’re hopping back down our burrow

To replan and replot

So we can tie the knot.

We have no date as yet

But when it is set

You’ll be the first to know

Now, on with the show!

(please un-save the date)
