In this new climate of uncertainty and change, couples are needing to be more flexible than ever with their planning. Over the past few months we have worked with numerous couples and their wedding planners to update changes to their wedding information so their guests are well informed. Today we are sharing with you some of the new communications that we have started to send out and the sample copy we've paired with it.

1. Postponement card or email

If the original wedding date has to be postponed but guests have already received their Save the Dates or even their invitations, then a postponement card or email is typically sent out. Whether shared by email or in the form of a mailing, this will let guests know to update their calendar with the new wedding date.

Family and Friends,

Our wedding celebration has been postponed until we can celebrate together on

Saturday, August 22nd, 2020

Despite the circumstances and delay, our hearts remain filled with joy and excitement for our

celebration and we are forever thankful to have such supportive friends and family. Please be on the lookout for more information over the summer.

We are so excited to celebrate with you!

2. Change of Date card

Change the Date cards may be needed to accompany an invitation suite that is currently in the middle of production but where it might be too expensive to reprint all pieces. Couples might also choose to send this card out as a follow up if the Invitations had been sent but changes were made afterwards.

Due to our rescheduled wedding,

please find the new dates below:

RSVP | Friday, the twenty-fourth of July

Wedding and Reception | Friday, the fourth of September

We will continue to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and communicate any necessary changes as soon as we can. We are hopeful that we will be able to move forward with our wedding date in early September and we appreciate your flexibility as it is so important for us to be able to celebrate our special day with friends and family.

In light of recent world events, our wedding is postponed until we can celebrate together on August 22nd, 2020. Despite the circumstances and delay, our hearts remain filled with joy and excitement for the wedding and we are forever thankful to have such supportive friends and family. Please RSVP on our wedding website at to confirm your attendance for our rescheduled dates:

Friday, August 21st | Welcome Party

Saturday, August 22nd | Wedding

Sunday, August 23rd | Farewell Brunch

We will also keep our website up-to-date with additional information as needed.

3. Covid card

Never seen before are these new enclosure cards that let your guests know that you are keeping watch on the constantly-changing information surrounding Covid-19. These cards will usually be included with the wedding Invitation suite and may also serve as a reminder for guests to routinely visit the wedding website for important updates.

Dear Family and Friends,

We are closely monitoring the situation surrounding COVID-19 and CDC social distancing guidelines. We are hopeful that we can move forward with our wedding in August and we appreciate your flexibility as it is so important for us to be able to celebrate our special day with friends and family. We will communicate any changes on our website at: as soon as we can. In the meantime, we have all of you in our prayers for continued health and safety.

We thought the weather would be the most stressful part of planning our wedding day, but instead it is a viral pandemic! We feel the need to address this as most of our guests will be traveling to join us for our special day. Our #1 concern is the health and safety of all our friends and family.

Please continue to check our website at for the most up-to-date information regarding how coronavirus may affect travel and wedding plans. At this point in time, our wedding plans have not changed. We will continue to monitor the spread of the virus and ask that you bear with us as we watchfully wait.

We have extended our RSVP deadline to July 18th to allow for more flexibility in travel plans. Should our event be cancelled or postponed, we will send out further correspondence. If you have an underlying health condition, are not comfortable traveling or feel sick in anyway, we ask that you celebrate with us from afar! Most of all, we hope that you all stay safe in the coming weeks. please reach out to us with any specific questions.

4. Updated RSVP card

We have found that for those who have postponed their wedding date but had already sent out their Invitations prior to the date change, that they are needing a new RSVP card to help get an accurate count. These simple cards can act as both a wedding date reminder and can serve as an RSVP. We are currently seeing many couples ask their guests to RSVP directly on their wedding website, especially if the original wedding date was postponed.

It is with hopeful hearts that we continue to plan our October wedding celebration in Sea Island. We are continuing to monitor gathering mandates and planning for the safest gathering allowed. Our wish is to have each one of you in attendance on October 18th to the extent you are comfortable for the wedding, reception, or both. We also understand if you choose to celebrate from afar. We kindly ask that you submit your current RSVP intentions on our website at so that we may begin to understand our guest count. A reminder correspondence will be shared closer to the wedding date, and you are able to change your response until then. Our website will be continually updated with the precautionary measures we plan to take at our celebration.

Thank you for your continued support and love.

Dear Friends and Family,

It is with joyful hearts that we continue to plan for our August 22nd wedding! In preparation for the big day, we ask that you please visit our wedding website at to update your RSVP. For planning purposes, we would greatly appreciate it if you could respond by July 18th.

Scaling Back

If there is a need to downsize the wedding count then telling your guests as soon as possible is of up most importance. Sharing the new details with a mailed card is ideal. And if the budget allows we recommend considering A Distant Toast gift thanking your guests for their support as you share your updated plans.

Dear Family and Friends,

Even though these times have changed so many things in our lives, our love for each other remains the same. We will be exchanging our wedding vows on August 22nd, 2020 at home in a small, private ceremony. We wish you could be here as we begin our married life together, and know you’ll celebrate with us from afar. Thank you for your love and support. We look forward to sharing our future with you.

During this time of constant change be prepared with how you will connect with your guests should you need to send out additional communications like those listed above. And if you find yourself in need of one of those new enclosure cards or announcements, drop us a line or visit our online shop to get started.

Updated: Jul 2

As excitement grows with your wedding date set it’s time to start planning for the big day. However, in this time of uncertainty it may be hard to know exactly where to start. While it may feel like so much is up in the air there are still so many important things you can do to continue your preparations.

1. Find your team

This of course includes all the wedding professionals you will want to enlist to help see your vision through. Reach out to trusted friends, family or co-workers for their recommendations. We also suggest you prepare a list of those friends and family members who will be your right-hand support along the way - a parent, or maid of honor, a sibling, etc.

2. Wedding Theme

Some couples will head into their engagement knowing exactly what their wedding style or brand looks like while others are developing their vision as they go. Regardless, it’s best to be prepare by creating Pinterest boards or by gathering a set of items or samples from weddings you may have received in the past. This will help your team of vendors by providing them with some visuals to build from.

3. Guest Addresses

Wait no longer as now is the time to contact friends and family to update your list of addresses. To avoid the stress of incompletion when it is time to send out the Save the Dates or Invitations it’s best to start early.

4. Website

Especially in this time of rapidly changing info it is ideal to have a place where you can update information on the fly. A wedding website is the best place to do so. Let your guests know on your Save the Date and Invitation Details cards that you will be placing updated information on your website as it relates to the ever-changing pandemic situation.

5. Registry

Your registry is such a helpful tool for your guests and will in the end provide you with the items you want and need. Take this time to the choose the items you important to you and include them on the wedding website for guests to easily access.

6. Save the Dates

Once the date is set you can start working on the Save the Dates. Save the Dates are typically sent 6-12 months prior to the wedding date. Many stationers will help to create that branded style early on that can be carried from the Save the Dates on into the Invitations.

7. Invitation Suite

If you’ve chosen a stationer early on for your Save the Dates then you might already have a vision laid out for your Invitations. But if not, you’ll want to start looking at Invitations online or identifying a stationer you’d like to meet with. You can also use this time to start thinking about what else you’ll need to include in your stationery suite (Details cards, Rehearsal Dinner invites, etc).

8. Wedding Day of Stationery

While this may be one of the last things you tackle having an idea of what you’ll want and need on the day of the wedding will help keep you organized. This might include signage, programs, menus, thank you cards and more. You can find options online that will provide samples and include pricing which will be important to help you stay on budget.

9. Welcome box

If you plan to prepare a welcome box for your guests coming in from out of town you can start searching for the goods you plan to pack in it. Many couples choose to curate a box with special meaning to them. This could be a beverage made in their hometown or cookies that are decorated to complement the wedding theme.

10. Parting gifts

Though not a necessity this can be a unique way to end the celebration with a special thanks from the couple. This can range from something sweet and sentimental to an item that is kitschy and fun. Regardless, it can be a fun way for the couple to make it their own.

While some decisions may be on hold due to the pandemic there are still plenty of tasks to check off the list. Start planning and check out our timelines for important dates. Or, to get started on your budget planning view our Online Shop where prices are listed for all your wedding stationery needs.

While the current pandemic has forced couples to make many difficult decisions, trimming down the guest list may be one of the hardest. There are a plethora of reasons a couple might choose to cut back on their headcount or find the need to eliminate guests altogether. The causes could range from state restrictions and new venue policies to unforeseen financial circumstances. Regardless of the situation, couples can still involve their favorite people in a special way.

We like to call it a Distant Toast! While large weddings with everyone gathered in one spot may be on hold right now you can still invite your guests to celebrate from afar. This might be an actual group toast on a zoom call or it could be a small gift to show your appreciation for the love and support from your family and friends. We have pulled together a handful of Distant Toast ideas for you to consider below.

Monogramed bubbly

Sending a bottle of bubbly is the perfect pairing for a scheduled zoom toast with those who couldn’t be with you on your wedding day. You can customize the bubbly with a cocktail stirrer, a tag or a sticker that showcases your wedding brand for an added level of detail. Include a personalized note of celebration along with it:

We are so grateful to have such supportive family and friends. We wish you could be here to celebrate with us, but know you will be toasting from afar!

Monogramed Can Coolers

Paired with the couple’s favorite carbonated beverage, a can cooler is certainly a light-hearted approach to a distant toast. As a long-term keepsake can coolers also offer a distinctive area to get creative and have fun with wording:

Sip, sip hooray! We’re getting married anyway!

Monogramed Matches and a Candle

If you have scaled back on your wedding guest count, and in turn your overall spend, then sending a gift of gratitude may be the ideal way to connect with your family and friends. Include a candle with a custom printed tag and custom designed set of matches. Add a note of thanks that might read:

For the safety of our guests, we have decided to marry in an intimate ceremony on July 18th. This gift is a token of our appreciation for years of your support and guidance. We are so excited to begin our lives as husband and wife.

Confetti Poppers

Celebrate with a bang by sending confetti poppers! These can be customized with stickers and tags to match your wedding colors or design theme and carry with it a fun way to celebrate for all ages! Don't forget to include an invitation to celebrate:

Since we can no longer celebrate in person, we ask that you join us on January 2nd, 2021 at 6pm for a Distant Toast!

In light of the current situation, making the best of it is the name of the game. A Distant Toast can add an extra special touch when celebrating from afar or a great way to let your friends and family know that you are thinking of them just as they are thinking of you.
