As the old saying goes “Honesty is the best Policy”

I think you should tell people the truth – those people that really care about you and your wedding should not have a problem with you doing this – at the end of the day it is your wedding and others should respect your wishes even IF you have changed your mind.  I think you just need to remember the word RESPECT in all of this and you should be ok 🙂

If I were a guest, I think I’d be more hurt not being told the truth and then finding out the details later.

Unless you’re planning on keep photos hidden from friends and family members for the rest of your life, they will eventually find out that you got married in Disney World, so you might as well tell them now.

@Gemstone:  Completely agree.

I’m an “honesty is the best policy” person too.  If people find out later, they’ll be hurt or offended or worse. 

Just add an honest note about the situation in your Save-The-Date Cards.  And if possible, can you and your family start spreading the word so it’s not a shock when the Save-The-Date Cards arrive?  That might help people understand, hearing it directly from you (or groom, or parents, etc.).  Good luck with all of this, it must be a lot of work to have to change everything!

I agree with the honesty policy. And I think it sounds respectful and people will be receptive of that. I would add the at home reception date though, because otherwise people won’t know what date to save!

I don’t think you should mention an event they aren’t invited to. I think you should focus on what they are being invited to.
