Why do you have to?  Is there 100% no other option?

Darn. Sorry this is happening. 4/1 will still be beautiful, and it’ll be here before you know it.

Since it’s so close, yes, I would pay for any change fee that people are assessed for changing their flight, hotel, & car reservations, etc.

@LuluInLove:  ????  That’s awful.  Quit your job, find a new one, and get married December 1!  =)  

 

April will be lovely.  Don’t worry.  I would worry about everyone who probably already has flight and hotel reservations.  How many people are flying in?

That sucks. I couldn’t imagine. To answer your questions…

1. Flights/car rentals: Depending on how they booked, they’ll probably still be able to cancel if they have 23 days until the date of travel. In the event your guests are unable to cancel their reservations, it would be nice of you to compensate them especially if you expect them to travel again in April. Of course it’s not necessary but I know that if I was a guest, I would really appreciate the sentiment.

2. Invites/RSVP’s: I’d say yes to both. If you’re having an intimate wedding, there shouldn’t be too many invites to send and replies to gather. Assuming most of the guest list are close friends and family, some may actually want to keep the invitation as a keepsake and having an invite to a wedding that didn’t actually happen would be pretty useless. If this was me, I’d definitely resend invitations with the updated info.

@LuluInLove:  I don’t have any advice, I just wanted to tell you I am so sorry.  I am a 12/1 bride and I can’t imagine.  Lots of hugs!!

For flights, have your quests check with the airlines they booked on, most major airlines let you change the date of your flights with a penalty fee (usually $100-$200).  Definitely worth checking on!
