First off, I’m sorry that this is happening. If your wedding date is the date listed next to your name, then its too late to do any changes to invitations. If I were in your shoes, I would personally call or enlist the help of Fiance, both families and Maid/Matron of Honor to call guests so word of mouth can spread quick. Also, if you have a wedding website, I’d def mention it there too. What a headache! Hope it works out for the better!

That sucks! But I definitely think you need to call each guest. As painstaking as that might be. Its the only way that you know people will know. I wouldn’t trust email/facebook/etc. You don’t want someone to miss the message and be at the wrong place.

I would do a combination of the above. 

I would send a mass email (wait one day before calling so if people respond you know you dont have to call them) to anyone you can and also call everyone. It won’t be so bad because many people will live in the same household and between you and your fiance you should be able to get through it.

@FutureMrsChaney: That should do it. If you have a lot of people to call, I would definitely recruit help from family or the wedding party.

@FutureMrsChaney: WEll mailing would be good, but isnt your wedding in just a few weeks? Would you have enough time to get the announcement, address and mail and then trust people are around to receive them?

@FutureMrsChaney: I’m sorry you have to deal with this as well!  I think your idea of a pretty email thing is great – don’t stress about it though.  *hugs*

OMG! The suggestion by the PP’s are good. 

I would also put a sign at the original venue. Just in case someone doesn’t get the message. Maybe even put out directions from the original venue to the new venue somehow on the sign.

@FutureMrsChaney: I agree on the emails too. I didn’t think of that. Good luck!

I think word of mouth and an urgent posting on the web site would be great, as well as calls and emails…surely it would get around to everyone that way!
