Wondering what to do if you have decided to announce your wedding on ZOOM? We are here to help with 10 easy tips for making a wedding announcement, while putting your wedding date on hold. This announcement relieves you of the stress of sending out a formal announcement in the mail, since this assumes that a wedding will be taking place in the future (e.g., 2021-22). You have decided that the wedding is an indefinite date considering that the pandemic is changing life in unpredictable ways. It also assumes that this is not a wedding announcement expressing an elopement (*this post contains affiliate links).

7 – Announce the postponement: give a tentative date, location, and high-level details to help your guests plan forward.
8 – Introduce the bridal party to your guests; if you have already chosen the key members of the bridal entourage, this is a good time to make an introduction.
9 – Keep your guests informed of the future date by setting up a wedding website, if you have not created on yet. This allows you to keep everyone updated without the need to keep sending out emails, which may go unread.
10 – Make a toast to everyone! This keeps the event fun and meaningful and sets up the anticipation for a future wedding.
