you only sent STDs, not the invitation, so i assume you have a venue but nothing else booked.

first you will have to cancel any booked vendors, you probably will lose your deposits.

then you will have to call your close friends and family to let them know you have a change of plan.

maybe you can keep that date of your wedding to have those 75 relatives over for a party at your house.  do it pot luck to help you celebrate.

If this is what you are both wanting to do, I would recommend either calling everyone or sending out a postcard saying that the wedding will not take place as planned. You can send out a wedding announcement that can also act as the party invitation if you choose to have a reception at a later date. 

Good luck!
