If you’ve postponed your wedding, what did your venue charge you to reschedule?

    I haven't had to postpone my wedding but I spoke with my wedding coordinator yesterday and she informed me that there wouldn't be a fee to reschedule (if we end up having to) since COVID is out of my control.

    Sounds like you’re working with understanding people who are taking COVID seriously. Enjoy a beautiful wedding whenever it happens - hopefully in March of 2021!

    My venue allowed us to postpone with no fees. However, someone in my extended family lost their deposit and had to pay a new deposit to secure a new date when they postponed their wedding due to COVID. Venues are certainly not handling postponing the same.

    They shouldnt be charging you anything but I’ve been hearing stories of $10-15k. If they try that, I would definitely argue it and see where you get

    We have just decided to postpone our November wedding. Previously we had made sure we checked with all our venues on their policies, and luckily none of them will charge any fees. It has definitely made our decision easier to make knowing that we won’t lose any money/spend more. We do have ever have to choose a Monday-Thursday because our venue is completely booked on weekends through December 2021.

    I am so fortunate and grateful that my venue or any of our vendors charged for rescheduling due to COVID.

    We had to pay a fee of $2,500 to reschedule to our new date. We don't want to go venue hunting again so we're just accepting it. We did decide to postpone a little over a month before our original wedding date. They're the only ones I've had to pay a fee with. DJ, florist, and bakery were all moved to my new date with no fee. At least we now have plenty of time to save up 😅

    We ended up deciding to push through with our original plans for October 10th, but when I spoke to our venue, they will be charging us $500 to reschedule.

    We are having to pay $2,400 to reschedule to next year, which is 50% of our original fee of $4,800, unless they book new business for the day. Another group for next year actually wanted to trade days with us and the venue said that didn't count because it is not "new business"... We notified the venue that we wanted to postpone about 3 months before our original wedding date.

    Maybe you can choose a Monday holiday?

    We postponed our Nov wedding to Oct next year this past June. They stood firm on charging another $1k deposit, though if we picked to push to Nov 2021, they wouldn’t have charged anything. How lame is that? I even offered to pay the full venue rental in full now to avoid the additional $1k. No dice bc still out the remaining balance this year. I almost said we’d go somewhere else then. But either way, someone would take the 10/2021 date and we’d still have to pay a deposit somewhere else, so it wasn’t worth getting in a pissing match. Also, the officiant also charged another $75 fee to change the date. But we have no contract from him staying this - so, do you pay the extra or no because he won’t send a contract?

    My venue didn't charge to postpone but did want to charge me 2021 rates. So my original wedding was in Dec 2020 with the venue rented for 3 nights and 2 days. I now have had to cut my wedding weekend down to 2 nights and 1 day in April 2021 to keep the price the same. They informed me that they were doing me a "favor" by not charging me to postpone and that COVID is not covered under the "Act of God" clause in the contract. I can not wait to write my final review for this place. And the only reason I did not cancel entirely is because they would keep everything I have paid thus far.
