I think I want to cancel my wedding we have a year to go but I’ve never felt more alone. Will I be charged for cancelling stuff?

It really depends on the contracts you have signed. I cancelled our hog roast as we changed our venue and they wouldn't allow other caterers and because it was about 8 months before we got a full refund, even though it was a non-refundable deposit. If you do want to cancel, the more notice you give the more chance you have of getting your deposits back. I hope things come right for you and there will be no need to cancel.

I’ve helped to cancel a wedding, I had to fight so hard to get the bride her money on her dress back, normally the rule is long as it’s cancelled not too close to the wedding, they keep the deposit but pay you back any other money you have paid over to them, look in to all your contracts x

You're not alone I've wanted to cancel a few times but the payoff of marrying the person I love is getting me through, I hope you're ok x

Have you spoken to your fiancé? Open up a little explain how you feel. That's who you are marrying after all. Isn't that what marriage is about. I'm sure you would want him to turn to you if he was feeling a little lonely. xx

Fear of losing money is no reason to go through with a wedding and a marriage that you are not 100% invested in. There will be loss of money, that much is inevitable I’m afraid.

I did this, I’ve never regretted it for a second because I knew something had changed and it was right to go through with it, not fair to either of us, now I’m engaged again, 248 days until w-day and I can not wait! I lost my deposits but I know I made the right choice, don’t do it if it’s not right, you might loose your deposits but that’s better than being uphappy. My ex didn’t even try to save the relationship which just proved to me I was doing the right thing, follow your heart babe 😊

So sad for you. It is better to lose the money than marry when it's not feeling right. Wishing you lots of luck x

Depends on your contracts or what sort of wedding insurance you have. If you cancel within a certain timeframe you usually lose your deposits. The closer it gets to the date the more money you will lose unfortunately.
I hope you’re ok. Is cancelling it definitely what you want to do? X
