Work on a plan to communicate it to your guests
The best and the easiest way to inform all your guests about the new dates is via your wedding website. You can post a simple message and it will work. If you don’t have any then you can ask your wedding invite the designer to create a nice e-card for you that you can be sent over an e-mail or WhatsApp to convey your message to them.
Try to be Flexible
We would strongly suggest you to have an open mind while rescheduling all your plans with your vendors. There are chances that your new wedding date may not be available with your vendors so, try to be a little flexible with the date as being rigid about it may be a spoiler for you and your vendor. If not with days, then try to work on the timings of your wedding. You can go for a day wedding if you were planning for a night wedding. In this way, it can work for you both.
