My ex-fiancé and I are calling off our same-sex wedding. We’ve canceled the priest, the caterer, the banquet hall, florist, makeup artist, etc., but we sent out save-the-date cards six months ago.
What we’re having a hard time doing is letting our hundred plus friends know that we’re not getting married. Can you help? Wedding presents are already arriving.
About calling off the wedding, here’s what I think.
Assuming you have a wedding website, as soon as possible post an announcement that goes something like this:
By mutual agreement, Michael Ogden and
Phillip Waterson have decided not to wed
and their June 10, 2017 wedding is cancelled.
Your generous gift will be returned
to you with heartfelt thanks.
Through word of mouth, the word will get out either through your wedding website, emails or phone calls.
Additionally, you can have a card printed up with the same sort of wording that can also be used as the thank-you card when adding your handwritten words of thanks on the backside.
- The card can also be used when sending back engagement or wedding gifts.
You do not have to furnish family and friends with reasons as to why you are calling off your wedding.
- There is no obligation to divulge the details so refrain from overdoing it. Clean and simple, “By mutual agreement, we’re no longer planning on getting married.”
