If your wedding was somewhere in March, April or May, then we totally understand how you feel. With the Coronavirus outbreak at its peak in the world, we need to take all sorts of precautionary measures and adhere to the regulations set by our authorities. One few of which is that neither can you go out of your house during the lockdown nor can you hold a gathering of more than 5 people. This means bye-bye weddings for now.
Since March & April were the prime months of the Spring wedding season, many brides are left with only one option now. And that is to postpone their weddings to a later, more suitable date. Even though this is your worst nightmare, you will have to intimate this detail to guests in time. And there is no better way to do that than through a 'wedding postponement' template.
To keep things easy for you, we've created a few templates that you can just save, copy and paste them on your social media and send it to your friends! 💌
We know you feel blue because you worked so hard on your wedding planning. However, it is the best decision to postpone for now. So, for those who wish to send the message without any hassle, here are some uber-cute templates for your postponed wedding. 🥂👰🏻
Emailers are also a great way to let your guests know that your wedding date has changed. Here are some email templates that you customise and use as per your description. 📧
Template #1 For Emailing To Your Loved Ones!
Dear family & friends,
Over the past few days, the world has turned upside down. Everyone has had to make some really hard decisions, and that includes us.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have to postpone our wedding until further notice.
We are so sorry to have to do this, but at this point, everyone needs to stay indoors and stay safe.
Our wedding celebration will take place at some other date in the future and once the situation improves and we'll let you know the new date. 📅
We hope that you understand that this is a drastic measure we never expected to have to make. We love every single person we invited to our wedding, and have taken this measure for everyone's safety.
Regards From The Couple Under Lockdown.
Template #2 For Emailing To Your Loved Ones!
Due to the global pandemic that has us all under lockdown, we've decided to postpone our wedding.
At this point, things are so uncertain we don’t have a firm date, but we will be in touch when we know more.
Until then, be well, be safe, and hug your loved ones at home tight.
If you're neither an email person nor a social media person, then you can always send the following messages on WhatsApp or any other kind of messenger. These look more personalised and are possibly the easiest way of letting people know the latest update on your wedding festivities. 📲
1. "Due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak, we have, sadly, decided to postpone our wedding until we choose a new date to celebrate. We will share the updated details with you as soon as they’re available. Thank you."
2. "Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the wedding of (Bride's Name) and (Groom's Name) will not take place on the originally planned date. A new wedding date will be announced as soon as possible."
3. "We regret to inform you that the wedding of (Bride's name) and (Groom's Name) will not take place as scheduled, due to the ongoing global pandemic. Please save the new date of (new date here). Formal invitation to follow soon."
Though unconventional, you can always create a video message for all your friends and family and send them that. It can be something personal that you can send to your loved ones or upload them on your social media accounts. If you're alright with the dose of the limelight, then go for it! 🎥
