We all know about save-the-dates, and while not everyone chooses to use them, many couples now have to inform guests about new wedding plans. If COVID-19 caused you to reschedule your wedding or even just the reception, here’s how to tell guests you’ve postponed the date. Stationers in our area are using their artistic talents to create pretty postpone-the-dates to let guests know about new plans, that are in keeping with the stylish elements that have already been created for these weddings. And some are even offering discounts on this new item you never accounted for in your original budget.

How to tell guests you’ve postponed the date: Save the NEW Date
As Evelyn Miller, Owner, Epitome Papers LLC, tells us, “I am currently in the works of creating some templates for “save our new date” or “postponement announcement” postcards for couples. We are promoting a special of 35% off all postponement postcards to help as much as we can.” If you don’t want something new but want the postpone the date card to coordinate with your invite, she can work with that as well, “we can create whatever couples need, they can even send us a photo of their original invitation and we can use similar colors/fonts for style consistency. If couples do not want to send out more mail we can do digital announcements as well for just the cost of design — anywhere from $10 to $40 dollars depending on intricacy/custom art).”
Jennifer Anderson, Graphic Designer/Print Specialist, The UPS Store in St Louis Park tells us about discounts for existing customers, “We are offering discounts on the postponement cards if they were an existing customer with us, and if they need to reprint their invitations we are also offering a discount on that.”
And just how to tell guests you’ve postponed the date can be as creative as your original invites. Josie Helmstetter, Owner/Lead Designer, Ivory Isle Designs, shows us one card she worked on with a photo of the actual venue from which it is based.
