    We decided to postpone our wedding. Originally we were getting married April 2009 but after unfortunate circumstance -FFIL passed away a couple of months ago- we decided to postpone until April 2010.
    Question: What is the proper etiquette on the announcement?
    (I'm trying not to spend too much money)
    Most immediate family already know about the postponement but I know I need to get the ball rolling on this...

    Thanks in advance!

      I dont know "proper etiquette" on this but, I have a friend who recently postponed her wedding. She sent a postcard style (like a STD) that had 2 sentences saying that due to x,y & z, the wedding date has been moved. I dont think you need to put why (her reasons were all positive things so she included them).

      I liked how she said the date was "moved" rather than "postponed". It sounded better to me. In your case, I would make it a combo date moved & std since you know it will be in April 2010. If you know the actual date, include it but April 2010 is fine too.

      My friend used Vistaprint and only spent $30! You can definitely do something nice and inexpensive.

        I'm definitely going to look @ Vistaprint. The thought of spending more money on STD is crazy to me but $30 is not bad at all!
        This will be #1 on my list tomorrow morning...
