Etiquette in Changing Wedding Location

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am about 6 months out from my wedding and have decided to change the location from Negril to Montego Bay. We are keeping the same dates. Invitations have not yet been sent out but we did send out the STD's and have our website up. Only about 4 couples have booked so far.

 

How best to handle this? Do we just revamp the site and send out the actual invitations with the new information on schedule? Or do we need to do anything else specifically? Do I need to get into detail as to why we are changing locations? (Not happy with management of the current place, plus found a place we just like better and it is cheaper for our guests).

 

I also want to make the process as easy as possible on guests who have booked.

I agree with Megan. Just help out your booked guests & send out the new location on the invites. I actually even changed the DATE after I had STDs out! It was no biggy because no one had booked anyway - and the date didn't make a difference to anyone (that I heard of anyway!) Don't stress about it - it will be just fine!!

We also changed the location of ours. We sent out a letter with a short explanation of why and included information about the new resort location as well as the new travel info. We also added a small note that a new formal invitation would follow. However, at that point none of our guests had actually booked yet so was not as much of an issue. (If they had, we would have helped them with the rebooking.)

My advice would be to give a short sweet explanation of why you are changing. (You KNOW people will be wondering and questioning...lol.) I would include some info about your new location to all. For the ones who have already booked at the old location, I would offer to help them rebook. I would also update your website with the new information.

It will all work out just fine. If they are invited, they are people that love you so don't stress.

I agree with Megan... As long as you personally help those that booked already; you are completely fine. I wouldn't stress at all about it; it happens to a lot of brides; especially now with the swine flu issues.
