As with postponing a Wedding, the ‘correct’ route to take is to inform your guests formally with a written note/letter/card, or if there is not sufficient time, a phone call will suffice. As with postponing the Wedding, there is no need to go into great detail or give reason for the decision – a formal message along the such as the following will suffice:


Mr. and Mrs. William Johnson

regret to inform you that the marriage of their daughter

Miss Joanna Johnson


Mr. Tom McCoy

On June 21st 2003

Will now not take place


It goes without saying that you will need to cancel everything you have booked and hope to salvage some refunds where possible – also check out the T’s & C’s of your Wedding Insurance Policy (hopefully you will have one – tut, tut if not!) as there may be an opportunity to make a claim. Wedding gifts, if already received, will need to be returned, as should the engagement ring if the Wedding has been called off by the Bride-to-be. Any costs incurred should be covered by whoever broke off the engagement although if the cancellation is amicable there is no reason why the costs should not be shared.


Hopefully you will have been reading this page just out of curiosity, but if you are unlucky enough to need to postpone or cancel your Wedding, hopefully you will have gleaned some information along the way.


A calm head, a focussed mind and a strong will are all attributes that are needed during this tricky period, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel so keep your chin up and don’t be afraid to rely on as many friends and family as you need to.
