Best change the date cards

The 21 most stylish change the date cards for 2020

If you've postponed your 2020 wedding because of Coronavirus, it's best to let your guests know as soon as you can. We've found the most stylish change the date cards for weddings, whether you prefer to post a printed version or reschedule digitally with a downloadable template.

We’re sorry if your 2020 wedding plans have been thrown into chaos – we know that can’t have been easy. As we explain in our guide to what to do if your wedding is during the Coronavirus pandemic, the likelihood is that if your wedding was due to take place before May, you’ll have had to postpone. In order to help you let your guests know the new arrangements, we’ve found the best change the date cards.


These work on the same principle as save the dates: a simple but beautifully designed update for your guests. Wedding postponement cards tend to include minimal information – you could always direct guests to your wedding website if you wanted to let them know more details.

Of course, you may choose to just send an email or WhatsApp. However, a stylish change the date card keeps the sense of occasion surrounding your wedding. In these challenging times, it’s good to have something special to look forward to.

You may decide to wait to let people know until you have your new wedding date confirmed. If that’s the case, you’ll need to go through the RSVP process again, so make sure to include the contact details in case guests have forgotten. However, if you want to get the word out before then, many of these change the date cards can be customised to simply inform guests that your wedding has been rescheduled, and that a new date will be sent in due course.

We’ve found a mix of change the date cards that you post – including print-at-home templates that you can customise – and others that you can send digitally.
