How to notify guests that wedding is postponed?

Invitations are already out and RSVP's are rolling in... but with the CDC's new recommendations, we are postponing our wedding. How have brides in the same position notified guests?? Do we need to send out letters? That's a lot of money on postage!!

    I would call guests individually. It may take awhile, but try to get your fiance & parents to help if they can. I would be worried letters wouldn't reach people in time.

    We sent a text to our guests. Many of them are from out of state/country so it was the fastest way to notify them. It would be best not to add to the overwhelming load that delivery folks would have to deal with during this time. Guests would also appreciate the personal connection and be able to respond right away. Plus, there are likely fees for postponing so it’s best not to add to it by sending a pretty card.

    We found out yesterday that we have to reschedule our wedding... our new wedding date is 10/31/20. The venue transferred all our date and aren't charging us since this is a natural disaster that's out of our control. We've started texting friends and family members about the date and it being postponed; we will then send out new Save the Dates to those who have RSVP's yes for the March wedding. I'm sending you positive thoughts!
