Are you purposely moving the wedding further away so that fewer people will come? Or are you just moving it to another location that is less expensive and because it is at that location fewer people can come? Either way, I think guests will understand, but you just have to word everything carefully. And I would let them know as soon as possible too!

I think if you tell them well enough in advance so they can make arrangements they will understand.

I’m sure your guests will understand… especially the ones who’ve been involved in planning a wedding before 🙂

I thnk as long as all the people who got save the dates are still invited then you are fine.  if they can make it- great.  If not, I don’t think they’lll hold it against you.

I would begin spreading the word that your dates and locations have changed. This will give folks who received the STD an idea of what to expect. I would also send out the invites a little earlier than usual so that they can make plans ahead of time.

Like others have said, the ones that mean the most to you will be the ones who come no matter when or where. If I was a guest, I would not be upset at all, so long as I was notified well in advance.

I would send a letter or postcard to everyone, explaining that that the new location will be where you were engaged. I think everyone will understand and think it’s adorable, and while fewer people might come, I don’t think you will get that much griping.
