Hi, all you lovely brides! For any of you who postponed your wedding celebration, but still got married on you original date, how did you word your postponement announcement, save the new date, etc? We are still in the process of deciding whether to postpone or not, and if we do, we still want to get married on our original date. If that's the case, our celebration will be a vow renewal on our 1 year anniversary. I'm not sure how to word that in a "Save the new date", postponement, or announcement. I'd love to hear what you did, or what you plan to do. Thank you in advance!!

    I would say something like...


    “Change the date!
    Due to the unforeseen circumstances from covid-19, we will be having a private ceremony on (original date), and have decided to postpone our wedding celebration.
    While we are disappointed we will not get to celebrate with our loved ones right away, we hope you will be able to join us on (new date) where we look forward to renewing our vows surrounded by family and friends!”

    We did "a new date to celebrate" for our august 30th wedding invitation and kept most of the wording them same. Most of our guests already knew we still had plans to be married may 9th in an elopement style ceremony.
    However, we actually ended up getting married on a different date than our original date. So when we decided to get married april 19th, We just sent out an email the week before so everyone was in the loop, and then announced our marriage on Facebook with all the pictures. We dont have a big guests list and most of it is immediate family so emailing them our plans was easier.

    Wow this is awesome Gen! I’ve been looking for this exact thread because this is what we’re doing and didn’t know how to phrase it on the announcement.
