- Wedding: July 2012
Hi Bees. I’m hoping you ladies could help us with a dilemma we have recently faced. We just sent out our Save-The-Date Cards last month to all of our guests for our wedding this July. In the last 2 weeks we have come across several family financial issues and have made the difficult decision to postpone until further notice when things settle down. The issue is mainly finances, and as sad as we are we know we will eventually get married and we dont want to put my parents in a financial bind to figure out how to pay for it, or to start our marriage in debt by taking out loans. My dad is hurt and embarrased, and we’ve reassured him its no problem, and we will just save more between the two of us too so we can help out as much as we can when we are ready. So that said, we want to notify our guests that we need to delay before anyone actually starts looking at plane tickets or hotels if they are from out of town even though we do not have a new date, but we don’t want to 1-alarm anyone or start gossip 2-air my families finances to people. I’ve read you need to call people, but we are 7 months out from the wedding, and we would rather send out little notecards to everyone who had gotten the save the dates. We are hoping to come up with something lighthearted/cute so our guests don’t get alarmed, because theres nothing with our relationship that is the problem. One of my bridesmaids suggested this: “Don’t dust off your dancing shoes just yet! We need a little more planning time before we wed!”
Any ideas, suggestions, thoughts etc would be so appreciated. We really were not expecting to deal with this, and are trying to make the best out of the situation as possible while maintating some privacy, and not having to deal with 20 questions.
PLEASE HELP! =/
