What happens when a wedding gets cancelled at the last minute? Another couple can swoop in, snap it up, and have the wedding of their dreams at a fraction of the cost! In fact, it’s the hottest new trend in the wedding world. 

Here’s how it works: Say your wedding is 100-percent planned and booked, from the caterer, to the function hall, to the DJ. But then, something happens: You get cold feet, or you find out your fiancée cheated on you. If you cancel at the last minute you can kiss deposits for the venue, caterer, and photographer goodbye. And you’ll still be on the hook for outstanding expenses. So what do you do? You call a company that’ll re-sell your wedding to another couple.

Like one company called Bridal Brokerage. You give them all of the details, like the date, venue size, and cost. Then, they find a “buyer” couple that fits the criteria, and purchases your wedding for a steep discount.

Couples selling their canceled wedding won’t break even, but they’ll get a chunk of money back, and they're off the hook for any outstanding bills.

So, why would anyone want to buy a canceled wedding, instead of planning their own? 

In addition to the discounted price, it’s also a great option for brides and grooms who don’t want to go through the headache of planning a wedding. 

It’s also popular with last minute elopers, and couples on a speedy timeline. For example, they’re expecting a baby, or are preparing for military deployment. The trend is attracting couples that want a fancy wedding without any of the work, which usually takes a year to plan. And since 250,000 weddings get cancelled every year, there are plenty to choose from.
