Sorry if this has been asked already but for those of you who are postponing or cancelling your weddings - how are you letting your guests know? It looks like we will be cancelling so I was thinking of sending everyone a short letter but don’t know if that’s weird/what the “protocol” is. Thanks in advance!

    I’ve just announced that we’re postponing our 06/06/2020 wedding celebration to 10/10/2020. i posted this on instagram and facebook, and then I will be mailing them to our guests within the next few weeks.

    I've received some by email and have seen couples sending postponement postcards or letters. It's also a good idea to remember to keep your wedding website up to date. As long as they get the information they need it really is up to you to message them in whatever way is convenient and fast for you. I'm sorry your wedding is being impacted, Karly! Stay tough!

    Cancellation of the wedding can be sent by FB, WhatsApp or other media your guests use on daily basis. Email those that prefer to get notified that way and can pass it on to others and have their travel agent cancel their flights if arranged.

    When I postponed my shower my mom facebooked everyone she had and let them know; called people she had numbers for and I just texted all my girl friends.


    However you can get in touch with people to let them know will work.

    Honestly there is no protocol for this. i would personally text or email all my guests.

    From a guests POV, as long as you tell them directly there is no wrong way of doing so. It's of course better to have it written down in email/paper though so they don't forget! Either and email like Beatriz mentioned/sent or letters in the mail would be good. I would say the email way is best though seeing as how when I sent out wedding invitations in general some got lost in the mail. Just avoid anything informal like a FB post (I think that's obvious, but you never know what people are thinking)!

    We sent out a mass email. We gathered everyone’s email and bcc everyone on it, explaining we were postponing due to covid-19. We let them know the new date and that we will be sending electronic invites going forward.
