Wedding cancellation help

Hey! Just needing some help on how to announce I have cancelled my wedding. We were originally meant to marry on 9-13-20 but after a lot of stress and back and forth we rescheduled to 7-25-21 due to COVID. We got married with our immediate family on 8-14-20. Now after a lot of consideration we have cancelled our big wedding because the whole wedding process has been a nightmare. Wedding and life planning in general has actually taken such a toll on us over the last 2 years that we are actually not even sure we want to continue our relationship/marriage. All of this has brought a lot of our issues to the forefront over the last few months and Im really no longer in good place emotionally or mentally at all. Only a handful of people on my side know we are married but his whole side knows. Anyways my question is how do I go about announcing our wedding cancellation? I really don’t want to tell everybody else we are married in case we do decide to split. But I know ppl will ask what our plans are since we’ve been together so long (10 yrs) . 🗣 HELP!!

    I believe they have "change of plans" cards, they may even have cancellation cards that you can mail out. I hope you guys can fix your relationship!

    So sorry this happened. It seems like all you really have to do is say you cancelled your wedding, its very believable since so many people are doing that right now. And dont tell anyone you are married just leave it vague and say you are still deciding what to do. If they speculate that is their problem, not yours

    I'm so sorry to hear this! You could send out a card that simply says, "The wedding of [name] and [name] has been cancelled."

    I was looking at some on Etsy not long ago. I’ve even considered just having my mom spread the word lol I really don’t want to deal with explaining why things got cancelled especially after picking a new date and sending re-save the dates 🤦🏾‍♀️ I have a good amount of friends I was inviting and I know they will pry and ask questions I’m not wanting to answer right now

    Thank you 💕. Now that everything is off we’ll be taking time off to try and fix things. I’m really not sure where things will go. This whole process has been a roller coaster to say the least.

    I’m so sorry girl that this is happening. You can just send out showing “with all the craziness of what COVID us causing, we’re opting to not have a big wedding! Thank you for your understanding! “. You don’t owe anybody an explanation. This will give you guys a chance to work on what’s going on with your relationship. Maybe get some couples & individual counseling. Good luck!

    Probably the best option would to say “due to unforeseen circumstances the wedding has been cancelled.” & then give safe wishes during this difficult time.

    It would be true, if not the only reason, to say that
    "the stresses of life and wedding planning during Covid times has been so disheartening, we have decided to wait a year of more before starting to make any future plans again." Hard times are not a rare thing, and most people understand. If people want to talk, talk, say right out, talking about this constantly changing thing we cannot control is distressing, so let's talk about other things. ...😗I'm sorry.

    I would say cards are not necessary and just another expense at this point. My best friend called off her wedding and send everyone a text or posted on social media; basically saying, we have made the decision to cancel our wedding at this time and we appreciate everyone’s love and support. However, with covid, you can just put due to the unknown, we are canceling at this time!
    Best wishes!
