With all the changes happening because of COVID-19, so many couples are wondering what to do. The CDC has recommended that all weddings be postponed for the next eight weeks. This news leaves couples who have a wedding scheduled during that time with a lot of questions about the next steps to take. You may already be in touch with friends and family about the necessary change of plans, but if you're looking for a more official way to send the news, you might want to consider sending a "change the date" card.

Many of these cards can be printed at home and sent out (an option if you already have postage available in your home), or they can be sent as digital versions. If you've talked to your vendor, you may have already have rescheduled a new date for the festivities. If you don't know the details yet (we know—this is super overwhelming!), that's okay too. You just want to make sure that every guest knows that the event has definitely been postponed, but is still going to happen—and when it does, you'll want them to be there to celebrate with you.

Here, the best change the date cards.
