I think the fact that you postponed it, may indicate to some people that your wedding is going to be smaller. We postponed too, but we were 4 months out. Anyone that asked, I just told them the finances weren’t gonna happen for it. Of course we hadn’t got to invite stage though. Can you spread the word, literally by word of mouth, that you’re now going to have a small family wedding?

YOur plan sounds lovely, by the way. Best of luck!

I like what @aunt pol said, why don’t you just spread it by word of mouth that it’s going to be a small family wedding? People should understand, given the state of the economy, and wanting to cut costs. Good luck!

I wonder if you could still invite everyone to celebrate with you after the wedding? Maybe do something like a drop-in ice cream social for dessert the same day as your wedding or at another time? That probably wouldn’t be very expensive, and it might give people a chance to see you all dressed up and congratulate you.

But I agree with everyone else that when it comes down to it, you aren’t obligated to invite everyone you invited the first time around. When you postpone a wedding I think people realize that you’re going through something difficult and they would understand that you decided to go smaller.
