Dear [Recipients Name],

Many of you said this whirlwind romance between Gena and I was coming around rather quickly. After much consideration, we've decided you are right, and we're putting things off a bit. We are still very much in love and hope that we can see you all at nuptials in the future, but we both want to be more certain before we make such a huge commitment to each other.

Thank you for loving us through this! You all mean the world to us!
