I would maybe type up a short note and put it in the mail to all your guests.  You dont have to go into detail.  Just something short and sweet and then a note to tell them to keep an eye out for a new save the date perhaps.  You could also post it on your wedding website if you have one. 

Good luck!

I am glad that  they want to get to know you. I think you sould send out another STD but with a cute “Opps”…picture with the correct date.  Then follow up with an email or a phone call.   if they ask tell them the truth, it is not as odd as you think it sounds, and honestly, *I* perosonally would have more respect for an oops, like that than say…. you hypothetically forgot to book the venue.  I don’t think most people will ask though. lol

@MrsNeutrino:  Please tell me you weren’t bribed with a dress to postpone your wedding… 

Have you definitely decided you’re doing this?

 

I guess I’d call as many people as you can and let them know that you’ve decided to postpone till 2013 and that you hope all is well with them and will be in touch with details as the time gets closer.

@MrsNeutrino: I’ve read your posts….are you sure this isn’t a ploy to get you away from their son? longer time to drive some sneaky little wedge.

I wouldn’t necessarily stop just quite yet, not until you know for sure these people are worth putting your dreams on hold for (not your fi, we know he is, just his fam) I love what you’ve blogged so far and would hate to think your plans were for naught. and plus you still have 8 mos or so!

I would give them 2 months to at least make some personal progress

I’m so glad they are ready to finally meet you! I’m sure your guests will understand and I don’t think a handwritten note is necessary. I like @imalittlebirdie’s suggestion to do a cute “Oops” card with a new date.

Hmm…I really want you to have your wedding like yesterday! πŸ˜›  I think it’s great that they finally want to meet you, but at the same time, I too am a little skeptical.  I’m with the vote that you should just go with things as planned…

And I didn’t know that you’ve been dreaming of Sunday Rose.  What a surprise! It’s nothing like your Vera, which is so gorgeous!

@MrsNeutrino: What I am about to say is by no means a criticism (we’ve talked on other threads before, so I hope you know I wouldn’t be mean), but how have you ended up engaged without ever meeting his parents? It’s just totally foreign to me since Fiance and I have been together for like 7 years already, so I’ve met his WHOLE family on numerous occasions and I am very close to his parents. On a related note, how are they able to not like you (as you seem to suggest above) when they haven’t even met you? I mean, I could maybe understand if they were uncomfortable with their son marrying someone they never met (not that he needs their permission), but not having met you is no reason not to like you.

Whatever happens, I sincerely hope that everything turns out well and that you and Fiance make the decision that is best for the two of you.

@MrsNeutrino: Are you visiting them over the holidays?

I didn’t even know you had a blog! Seriously behind here, haha!

No offense at all but I find this a bit suspicious on their part. Like williakellb said I’d be concerned that they want to drive a wedge between the two of you. If you are totally okay with postponing then it’s fine. In my opinion what does it matter if they get to know you before or after the wedding since you are still going to marry their son.

@MrsNeutrino: Wow, yeah, this is a really tough call – sounds like it’s really going to help your Fiance enjoy your wedding, and you definitely want that.  Well, the year is almost over, so it’d only be another year right? πŸ™‚  BTW, what is this blog that Techie speaks up? I’m more behind!
