We connect our member Brides and Grooms world-wide, the sellers and our registered buyers, while protecting their privacy.
Once you become our registered member, based on your preferences, we offer you available canceled weddings, honeymoons and even wedding vendors' late availabilities on a fraction of the original cost.
Canceled Weddings is all about savings and great prices.
It's a win-win for everyone.
- Brides and Grooms selling their wedding get a chance to save their deposits and cancellation fees.
- Couples looking for a real bargain get a chance to buy on great discounts
- and wedding professionals (Vendors) don't loose a date that they weren't able to sell on a full-price.
As wedding and event-management brokers we have to understand what suites best to our member Brides and Grooms (whether you're buyers or sellers) and when it comes to selling a canceled event we have to be good at taking care of the necessary legal paperwork to transfer wedding vendor's contracts to a new couple.
The original couple has deposits already vested in and is usually in contractual debt to his/her vendors. This is a situation that we've to understand, solve and be able to pass the rights and obligations to a new buyer that has an incentive to get a good deal. We've a system for this that works on international scale.
Buying someone else's canceled wedding on discount is a very tempting opportunity which looks easy, but it's actually very difficult to transact. That's what we're here for to make it simple and efficient for you.
Do the selling couples fix a price or does the price of a canceled wedding depend on negotiation?
If there are more buyers interested in one wedding we conduct an auction which might even bring more money to the seller than the seller previously hoped for - this works for special dates like the 11.11.11 or 12.12.12 and where the buyers see also a value in saved time and energy in buying a well packed event that somebody else spent time on with preparation.
Can couples purchase only the whole canceled wedding or can the buy just parts of the canceled events? If – as a buyer – I don’t like the band, can I just buy the catering and the location? Does that depend on negotiation as well?
The key factor here is driven by the value of paid deposits and cancellation fees. Sometimes the seller is concerned only with the venue and caterer, because there's the highest cost and strongest cancellations penalties. In such situations the buyer may choose to buy just individual parts of the wedding. Sometimes it's only the band or photographer that plays the hardball with the seller and thus becomes the primary point of interest for resale. It's very individual. Thanks to our MatchMaker system we always get the right match on our members preferences.
Couples adopting a canceled wedding 2-3 months before the wedding date usually have plenty of time to work out adjustment and changes with the wedding vendors.
