Covid19 Causes You to Change Your Wedding Date
Wedding postponements happen for a variety of reasons and are, understandably, a real disappointment to wedding couples worldwide. With nearly half a million global weddings slated for this summer, many couples are trying to navigate postponements in an ever-changing pandemic.
If you’ve decided to postpone your special day, our first and foremost encouragement to you is to rebook your wedding venue as soon as possible. Your picture-perfect White Sparrow Barn wedding will be everything you dreamed possible once your new date is secured.
The next step you’ll need to take is to inform your guests of your wedding changes with a Change the Date notice. Consider simple phrasing such as,
Due to the ongoing health emergency of COVID-19, the wedding of Caryn Smith to Jack Kennedy will regrettably not take place on July 18th as originally planned. Please save our new wedding date of November 28th.
We are grateful for your love, support and understanding.
Formal invitation to follow.
Your alert should include clear information about changes to your wedding day. You may choose to also include additional information, such as:
Updated date and time
Venue location (White Sparrow Barn, eeep!)
Contact information for accommodations
Virtual wedding link
Wedding site URL for updates
To save time and curb expenses, you may choose to send your Change the Date electronically; wedding etiquette experts affirm doing so is perfectly fine. Or, if your wedding date is quickly approaching, consider notifying guests by text, email or social media—and then sending a printed notification with your new details.
For those sending printed cards, we recommend keeping your wedding aesthetic in place by using the same iconography from your save the date or wedding invitation. This small, special detail will reflect your soon-to-come special day.
