How to tell your guests that you are postponing your wedding day

Due to the global Coronavirus circumstance, many brides have asked me to change their wedding date, venue, times in their wedding invitations, not to mention the disappointment they are feeling.

It is understandable and it’s heartbreaking every time I know about their situation.

Despite everything, we have to adapt to reality and, as a stationer, my advice to act in the best way. How:

  1. Use your website to updated all the details so your guests can be informed.
  2. On the other hand, when you inform about the postponement, try to be clear and brief, to avoid confusing your guests.
