Q: It’s less than two weeks from the wedding date. The wedding must be moved from being held at my home to a small local church. How do I notify the invited quests? Please respond with all possible options. Thank you!
A: When it is necessary to change the venue of the wedding and the new venue is decided upon after the invitations have been printed but before they are mailed, it is not necessary for the bride to order new invitations. Instead she may enclose a printed card, if there is time print one, saving “The wedding will take place at St. John’s Lutheran Church instead of your address.” If there is not time for the card, she may neatly cross out the old information on the invitation and insert the correct information by pen. If the invitations have already been mailed, she may mail a card or a personal note, or if the guest list is small, telephone the information. If there is no time to have a card printed, the information must be communicated by telephone, fax, or e-mail, or by a personal note.
