Wedding Etiquette Tips 16


Wedding Cancellations and postponements
This can be a hard one for those who really need to cancel their wedding or postpone it. Not that the wedding couple decided to call it quits, it may be that a family member or their loved ones have met with a terrible tragedy and they need to postpone it to a later date or simply cancel it as they are to burdened at the moment to think of any date at all to be married.

If you have really decided to cancel the wedding, remember, no explanation is needed, it will be a simple notice. You have to send it out quickly to avoid any inconvenience to your guests that may even be planning to come already. Notices should be sent to all those that are invited, and even if they have not RSVP, it should be sent to them too. You can even assign someone to take calls from friends or family if they want to know what is happening, as you can expect a deluge of phone calls coming in. A simple notice of wedding cancellation writing format should read like this…

Mr and Mrs XXX announce that
The marriage of their daughter YYYYY to Mr XXXXX
Will not take place.

If you have decided another date to get married and hold your wedding, then you should sent out the wedding postponement notice as soon as possible to avoid any inconvenience to your guests.

The writing format of the notice will read like this…

Due to a tragedy of a recent incident,
The wedding of Mr XXXXX and Miss YYYYY
At Church of Our Saviour, Brookesville
On 10th June at 11am
And at an evening banquet
at the Regency Hotel
at 7.00 pm
on 10th June
has been postponed to a later date
on 10th September,
at the same venue and time.
