I honestly dont think you can do this without being rude. Why are you moving the wedding?

Good luck to ya sweetie! 

I guess dont send them a letter implying that they arent invited anymore. Send a letter letting them know the new location./

How far is Disney World from your original destination of your wedding?

If its a distance then you wont even have to imply that they arent invited….most people will probably not travel.

At least I hope it works that way…lol

Good luck! Keep us updated!

@vitani88:  All I can say is good luck……as teabiscuit said, you really can’t do this without being rude.  What is your reason for moving the wedding?

if the invition hasnt been sent out already i would just let time fly and not make an announcement. those who get invites to the wedding will know. those who dont dont need to be in the loop. if they bring it up just say we are doing a wedding in disney world and thought it best to keep the list small because of the holidays and traveling.

Just because you moved your wedding why would you uninvite people??

@asianyoushi:  No, I disagree.  That’s not right b/c other people who think they are invited to the wedding may be saving the wedding date and thus turning down other plans/weddings/events/vacations going on.  OP needs to tell the people who are not invited to the wedding ASAP.

I don’t think you can not say anything and hope for the best and I don’t think you can “uninvite” people.  Do you think people would come now that you moved it?  I have to assume this is a sort of destination wedding.

Honestly, I think you should still invite everybody and hope that because it is now a destination wedding most people don’t come.  I can’t really think of any other way.

I don’t think its ok to uninvite anyone. If your new venue cannot accomodate everyone, then you should find a venue that can. Or if your new venue is too expensive for you to pay for everything, then you should change the venue to something more budget friendly. I don’t think you can kick people off of the guest list just because you had a change of heart if you have already told them to save the date for the wedding. If someone did this to me I would be incredibly offended.

Maybe send out an announcement card with something like “We’ve decided to make our dreams come true (isn’t that Disney thing??) and are now getting married at Disneyworld!  Because this will be a small and intimate affair, we would love to celebrate with everyone on MONTH DATE in NC TOWN after the wedding.  Please mark your calendar to help us ring in our newly wedded bliss- we can’t wait to see you!  Love, BRIDE & GROOM.”

I wouldn’t even address why you changed your location because it will only make people upset.  I agree with PP that uninviting someone is rude, but if this is your situation now you’ve got to make the best of it.

This is a twist in the plans that you did not mention in your other post asking if you should change venues to Disney World….I have a feeling that if you had told the Hive that you would have to univite people (and presumably that is the reason you are now saving money?) that our answers would have been a touch different.

The only thing I can think of is that with Disney being the new venue and how much you have to pay out of the butt on just a regular visit to the park that a wedding will make it 1,000,000,000 times more expenive and so less guests means less money to pay.

I just read your other post. I don’t think you should move your wedding to be honest. You cant uninvite people to something like this. Especialy because you said it was to same money. Other people will instead have to dish out a lot more money to come for your wedding, it’s not really fair for anybody.
