Things happen. Things change. And when they do- you roll with the punches (after a few weeks of anxiety attacks and a whole lot of tears) and you hope your friends and family roll right along with you. Our wedding was originally scheduled for October. Now, it is in March. It is not easy knowing that you are inconveniencing your loved ones. It is also not easy waiting five extra months to marry your love. The lovely Rose of Design by Bittersweet worked one on one with me through emails and a couple of drafts, and we found a way to ease some of the awkwardness! I think they turned out lovely, and my step-sister actually texted me today to tell me that they are adorable! heehee! Love!
Step by step instructions for changing your wedding date:
- Mourn your original save the date, but then try to forget them forever. Hypnotism?
- Beg your venue to help you move the date at a reasonable price.
- When/if this fails, suck up your pride (at this point I had none anyways) and ask you parents to step in and help negotiate.
- Let the people know who are coming from out of town ASAP.
- Then, find some cute new plan that lifts your spirits and get those new dates out. If you have a comprehensive email list or a trusty phone tree, you can go that route too. I’m just a paper girl.
- Breathe. Move on.
These were our original cards. They had hot pink envelopes and little stickers inside to put on your planner that said David + Chelsea and the date. Bygones.
