ADVICE ...Due to an unexpected issue at our Venue (possible big noise conflict with a venue next door) we have to move our ceremony time up from 6:30pm to 5:30pm. How would you go about notifying all of the guests. A. Have my wedding "Helper" call each of them. B. Email and text C. A card in the mail D. ANOTHER SUGGESTION. I'm panicking and irritated. Lol wedding is 8/24!

    HONESTLY: I would say A and C if you have time. but most important get in contact with them asap. bc the last thing you want is someone coming at 6:30, after the wedding has started. try to keep calm. its something that can be fixed fast. good luck. congrats few days away!

    Maybe a combination of a call and a card in the mail. And post it to your wedding website!

    I would personally contact each one and if I could afford to mail anything that would be nice too.

    I agree, all of the above. It is time consuming, but you need to do it asap. So sorry to hear that is going on and causing extra stress.

    If you enlist FH and parents you could split up the list of people to call. Most important is to make sure everyone knows, and the only way to really guarantee that is to call.

    I personally would e-mail and request each person just send an e-mail back just saying hey got it. And then call anyone who doesn't e-mail you back. That would cut down on how many calls you have to make and make sure everyone does get the memo.

    I would do all of the above. If I were your guest, as a forgetful person, I am going to put the card on my calender and keep the email so I see it daily.

    I agree with everyone...thanks for the advice. I bought some little cards that I'll send in the mail with stamps AGAIN! (can you say MORE MONEY! LOL) and next week I'll call/email to and make sure everyone received the card in the mail. Super Irritated...but hey, this too shall pass! :-) In a few weeks I'll be a WIFE! WOOOOOHOOOOOO!

    I would do A & C. If you have everyone's email address, just send one message to multiple recipients. But, B., is good because more people may check their mail more often than their email.

    All of the above. Send out a written note. Call, text, email. Anything to get the point across!
