Cancel a Wedding

Sample Letter #1

We apologize for any inconvenience this change in plans may have caused. We appreciate your warm friendship.

Sample Letter #2

Although this news may come as a bit of a shock to you, John and I are having second thoughts about our wedding and, therefore, have decided it would be best for us to postpone it until we are sure about what we want.

We know you have sacrificed a lot to take the time off work and to purchase the plane tickets, and we are truly sorry for your trouble.

Sample Letter #3

This may come as a surprise, but the wedding train has once again been derailed. Just when we thought we had everything in order--chaos. We are returning your lovely gift, but keep it around, as we will most likely be able to reschedule. We do apologize for any inconvenience.
