21 Change-the-Date Cards for Postponing Your Wedding
With so much uncertainty in the world, more and more couples are postponing their wedding dates due to COVID-19. With rescheduled plans and postponed celebrations, communication with wedding guests is more important than ever. Just as you sent out a Save-the-Date card for your original date, you’ll want to ask your guests to save your new date once you’ve selected one (and no, deciding to postpone your wedding and choosing a new date do not need to happen at the same time).
For couples who got married under quarantine in your living room, it’s important to let your guests know what that means – will you still be celebrating with them at a later date or have you chosen to forgo any wedding or celebration? Communication is key.
As more and more couples choose new dates, the selection of Change-the-Date cards is expanding to meet the needs of every couple, no matter what style or design you’re going for. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites to match your wedding themes and color palettes to help as you select how you want to spread the word to your friends and family.
There’s no rule saying your change the date cards need to match your color scheme or look even remotely similar to your previous save the date and invitation, but know that there is a whole rainbow’s worth of change waiting for you to choose.
As if you even needed an excuse to share another adorable couple photo or show off more of your engagement session, go for a photo change-the-date card and begin the challenge of choosing just one photo (we won’t tell if you decide to do a collage of photos instead).
As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples—gay, straight and lesbian—can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born.
I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
