Just after some advice, my partner and I finally decided to get married and booked a date for 2018. We have paid deposits for venues, cake etc etc and now my partner is moaning about money!! We can’t afford it and he wants to postpone to a later date. Even though we’ve known about costs for ages ????. He’s awful with money and I’m sick of arguing about budgeting and paying for things. So, my question is will we lose all this money if we still stay with the same venues and suppliers if we just change the date for a year later? I’m absolutely gutted and don’t want to do it especially if we’ve basically wasted all the money we have already spent. Thanks x

Hi you will have to check with the people you have booked with :)

Hi, depending on the venue they may charge you slightly more due to annual price increases and you’ll need to check what dates are free for that year you want. If your wedding is next year then they may charge you a cancellation fee or keep the deposit.
You just need to check with your venue.

You will need to check with each of the people you have given a deposit to but chances are you may loose it x

It depends on the venue. Some may allow you to change the date and not lose any money because you are still using them. You could maybe phone them or arrange an appointment and explain the situation and ask if it is possible to move it back a year. It may increase though as the venue would be more expensive in 2019.

I think you need to get in touch with the venue and find out but be warned that prices rise each year!

The photographer, cake and flower supplier shouldn’t be a problem. I’d contact the venue first and if there’s plenty of time they should try to accommodate you.
