I need some advice from you guys. We’ve postponed our original wedding date and this time around, would like a smaller affair. Invites were never sent but STD’s were. We have a few friends who we were initially going to invite, but we haven’t spoken to them in over a year. Do you guys think that I should inform them of the new wedding, but let them know that I can’t invite them? Or should I just let it go and say nothing?
I was thinking of writing them an email that said, "I wanted to let you guys know that Fi and I are getting married this August. However, with the economy the way it is, and finances difficult for everyone, we have to have a smaller affair than we initially planned. We’ve decided that we are not going to be able to invite people that we haven’t talked to in the past year or so. We hope you know that we love all of you, but unfortunately are unable to invite you in August. We hope that you can understand and that there are no hard feelings, as this has been a very difficult decision for us to have to make."
Is that just rubbing it in, and we should say nothing? Please help! Thanks!
