    I would use C, but add the “which may take hours” part.  The first part of A & B read kind of weird to me.  Maybe it would read easier if the “wedding party VIP boarding time” was on one line instead of breaking it into two.  Overall I like C best though.

    I would do something that would make SURE that my guests knew the time change.  I would probably cross it out on the original invitations, or cover it up or something.  What happens if a guest needs to reference the time, and only has the invitation left because the business card slipped away or got lost in the shuffle?  I’m just imagining confused guests, wrong time in hand, having to wait for hours because they don’t have a record of the change.

    @wdrake_98:  More info needed, as I am a tad confused.


    1- Is the Boarding Time / Wedding on the the first day (after Embarkation) for the Cruise?

    2- When you say VIP does this apply only to the Wedding Party

    3- Or to ALL Guests

    If YES to # 1 then I see where things could get complicated… and you most certainly need a PRE-WEDDING mail out plan be that the one you’ve suggested… (but also think about mailing off an Update Card to ALL your Guests)

    If YES to # 2 then you could do your best with the ABC options you’ve listed… IMO “A” is the best choice, because it doesn’t use the term “Late Guests” which is sort of rude… implies the worst of your Guests (lol, although truthful, not seen as polite)

    If YES to # 3 see my notes here for # 1 above.  Another idea, is that if the Wedding isn’t on Day One, you could talk to the Ship’s Coordinator, and have Reminder Cards with the info (such as your suggestions above) delivered to each Stateroom on the cruise.  You could do it yourself, or have someone on the crew do it (common for organized parties)

    Anyhow, the more detailed info you give us… the more likely we can come up with workable solutions

    For the record, when I got married the first time, our Reception Venue went out of business 3 weeks before our Wedding (Invitations Mailed – Deposits Lost)… BUT we did recover just fine, and found a Venue, a Caterer… and sent out Reminder Cards by seperate mailing (business card size… printed to match our Invites).  We also had designated folks at the Church who handed out directions to the new venue following the ceremony.  It all worked out in the long run.

    Lol, if this is the ONLY hitch on your BIG Day, consider yourselves lucky.
