I think sending the invites with a special insert explaining the date change should work…good luck!

If you aren’t ready to send the invitations yet, with the new date, you could get some save-the-date reminder/date change post cards to send out right away, and then when you are ready to send the invitations, you can send them out with the correct date.

i would suggest calling each person, but with 200 invitees that would be a difficult task!  new save-the-dates or even an email i think.

All of the above?  What is quickly doable for you?  You could also do a combination of word of mouth, email and mailing with a note explaining.  I wouldn’t send the invites with the correct date without some sort of explanation – that may be a bit too confusing.

You need to tell everyone ASAP.  Some of our out of town guests may have already purchased plane tickets.  And those that haven’t will need to purchase their tickets ASAP.

I’d send an email save the date update today and then send the invitations out ASAP (my wedding is July 10 and I mailed my invitations last week.

I’d say get invites out ASAP and just include a note in it. Plus I’d try to tell as many people as possible – I’d imagine telling a few people in each of your families would spread the word, plus you could always let your friends know via a mass email.

I would send the invites ASAP with an insert explaining the change and that you hope they can still make it!!

You do exactly the way you told them it was postponed.  Word of mouth.  Quickly followed by an invitation asap.

Good luck!

I would either send out invitations in the next few days, along with a note explaining why the date changed… or design/order postcards today through vistaprint (they have deals for joining up for their email list that give you 100 post cards for free and you pay shipping) that way you can send those out in a couple days if your invitations are not anywhere near ready.


Holy run-on sentence, Batman!

I’d combine a couple ideas.  I’d tell your immediate family and closest friends to spread the word.  And I’d send out the invitations with a lil note explaining what happened.

 I agree a note with the invitations will be best and tell your close friends and family.

I would get the invitations out now, as soon as you can get them out. You are about two months away so they should be going out now anyway. I would include a little note explaining why the date was changed so that people aren’t confused. Also, I might call the Out of Town people who are family and verbally give them a heads up as well.
