Without brining all that drama up, I think an email would be fine- maybe send a nice brochure in PDF format. There are a few templates here that you could use. I sent out a PDF about Puerto Vallarta about 2 weeks before the wedding with some key information, what to pack, what to expect, etc. The guests appreciated it. You could also print it and mail to people without email access (and I can't believe they still exist, but they do!!)
Also, maybe check out Alyssa's thread about chaning her location. She had to do a 180 since her resort closed. I believe she sent a brochure. I'll try to find the thread and link it here for you.
Here's her planning thread- you can see the pdf newsletter I'm talking about like 4th post in. I hope that helps some!

Key West is such a beautiful place and the weather is pretty good year-round, so it's almost always gorgeous. Have you thought about Lake Tahoe? I was in a wedding there last summer and it was GORGEOUS, easy to travel to, and fairly affordable. Although weddings in Vegas can be kind of cliche, I attended a wedding at Ceasar's Palace a few months ago that was also very beautiful and classy. Plus, I think it was fairly cheap for the bride and groom. It certainly was TONS of fun for the guests.
As far as notifying the guests of the change in venue, I'm with the other girls and think changing the website or phone calls would be fine. If you want to do something more, what about a fun little postcard with the new venue on it and something funny about the swine flu?
Good luck girl and keep up the great attitude!!! I'm sorry that you had to change your dream DW, but sounds like you and your FI have certainly weathered the storm. What a great reminder that your relationship is pretty awesome!!

I also vote for Key West. It will still have that tropical feel. Good luck!

Have you thought about Costa Rica? I think it sounds like a wonderful place to get married too.
Best wishes to you and I'm so sorry that you are having to go through so much.
