How to Announce a Postponed Wedding

(This post contains affiliate links)

Feel like you have a few more steps to climb to get to your wedding day? Our hearts are with each of you that have made the decision to postpone your date. The next decision is how to announce your postponed wedding to your guests.

With good intentions, your friends and family may be overwhelming you with questions about what you and your fiancé have decided to do about your upcoming wedding or whether you have set a new date.  Instead of handling the questions one at a time or worrying about writing a difficult email to your guests, the digital invitation company, Greenvelope, has a better option.

They have created a collection of postponement announcements that can be emailed to your guest list. When your guest opens the email, it is just like they are opening an envelope and removing the announcement.  Also, Greenvelope provides tracking so you can see who has opened your announcement.

If you have decided to postpone the wedding but have not put together all of the details for a new date, no problem. Below are our favorite digital announcements to let your guests know that you have postponed your wedding – and are working on the new plan.

This New Date TBD announcement is modern and clean.  At a glance, it lets your guests know that you have postponed your wedding and have not decided on a new date yet.


The We Still Do announcement lets everyone know that you won’t let a little postponement affect your commitment to each other.  It is so very sweet.


Maybe this Rainbow After the Storm announcement better fits your boho style.  This announcement lets your guests know that you are waiting for the rainbow and will let them know the new date later.


Already have the new date figured out?  You are ahead of the game.  What you need is a Save the New Date announcement.  Here are our favorites:

This It’s a New Our New Date announcement is cute and simple!  No need to give a reason – everybody knows why.


Want something more elegant?  The New Plan announcement lets your guests know the new date for your wedding in a sophisticated way.


Maybe you want a more modern announcement for your new date.  We love the script in this Modern New Date announcement.

If you are in this situation, hopefully you have a certified wedding planner that is helping you navigate all of the details involved with changing your wedding date.  If you aren’t already working with a wedding planner, there are many who are now offering their services to help you find a new date.

These email announcement cards are a simple and modern way to announce a postponed wedding to your guests.  Each announcement card gives you color and wording options.  Take this one decision off your list today!

Again, our hearts are with you during this time and we know that your new plan may be even better!  Love waits ❤️
