Unless you really want to, there is absolutely no need to state the reason for the recall, but be sure to expect some prying questions in the near future! If the Wedding is due to happen soon, then phone calls to every guest in turn is suitable – you could even rope in Wedding party members to help out if there is a lot of calls to make. Of course the downside with phone calls is the ‘why?’ question which will undoubtedly be raised and there is no getting away from, so make sure that you have your story straight!
Once the date has been re-arranged, then a second invite should be issued and worded along the lines of:
Mr. and Mrs. William Johnson
Are pleased to announce the wedding of their daughter
Miss Joanna Johnson
Mr. Tom McCoy
Which was postponed, will now take place
At 11.15am on November 23rd 2003
At St. John’s Church, Egglescliffe
And afterwards at
Harbourne House, Kirklevington
