Save the New Date
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused massive disruptions to the entire world, in particular our wedding world. Couples all over the world have had to postpone their big days. This requires letting all of your guests know when the big event will now take place. We chatted with our wedding stationery suppliers to see what options they have to let everyone know to Save the New Date
Sophie KL Mitchell
I’m a one woman small business and have always tried to put my couples first above all else. With this in mind I wanted to create a minimal and affordable collection for anyone who has had to make the difficult decision to change the date of their wedding. The collection is modern and versatile and so I am offering a free colour match service for all couples.Sophie, Sophie KL Mitchell

Hawthorne and Ivory
Seeing my lovely couples having to postpone and rearrange their long-awaited wedding dates has been heartbreaking! I’ve been trying to make the stationery side of things nice and easy to deal with, to hopefully slightly ease what is no doubt a stressful and emotional situation for everyone. They’re a quick note that you’re still getting married and are still excited to celebrate with them once everything is safer- we’re all going to need one hell of a party after this!Becky, Hawthorne and Ivory
Hawthorne and Ivory have a wide range of designs and styles from their house collection which can be adapted to create a ‘change the date’ design. They are available as either digital files to share on social media and via email, or as printed cards to send through the post.

If you’ve had to postpone your big day
And need to inform guests of the delay
Change your wedding date and time
With a little personalised rhyme
Berry Poetic creates bespoke poetry for weddings or any occasion. They have designed these cute wedding postponement cards as a quick and simple way of letting your guests know you’re having to postpone your wedding. These are available in two simple yet elegant black and white designs. Each design can be customised with your personal details; your new wedding date and your names. The cards are flat like a postcard and are blank on the reverse for your own message, if you wish. Each card has a small magnet so they can be displayed, for example on a fridge. Cards are A6 size 105mm x 148mm made from sustainably sourced high quality 330gsm card and come with envelopes. Available on their Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/berrypoetic
I hope when your big day comes, it will be fabulous and worth the wait!Fiona, Berry Poetic
Hartiescraft create handmade stationery items and gifts. They have a beautiful handcrafted feel to them with an artistic flair. Their designs are all bespoke and can be customised to your theme. They pride themselves on the care and love they put into their work.
In these uncertain times a lot of couples will have already sent their official invitations out. A cost effective way of informing your guests of your new date is with a “change the date” card. Similar to a save the date card these do the job perfectly without a huge additional cost!Becky, Hartiescraft
