My own wedding was a humanist ceremony in a hotel. Only 19 of us at it. Had a party two days later for everyone else. Very hassle free.

might look into the humanist option as the registry office in Cork looks grim from the outside.

As soon as we get sign off that we can go ahead with 50, we're doing it. Even if it's at 2 or 3 weeks notice. Hope to god it will be this summer, the stress hanging over us the last year is almost unbearable.

However from 2021 the venue was becoming vat registered, she said she would keep the same rate for us but we'd have to pay the vat.

Plans changed for us a few months ago and told her we'd have to push it back the next year instead and she told us that she couldn't keep the same rate and would have to be 2022 rates, which is double what we have originally agreed. Things have changed again and we probably could have it this year but you still never know with covid and the amount of people you're allow have. 
Ok I get that places have been closed and have to make the money back, but double the price!
Any one else getting shafted who's has to change their plans?

My brother who is in a wedding band said they're keeping all their existing bookings at the same rate but an extra 100 or 200 for new bookings and not double the cost.



In the same boat , on to are third new date for next summer. We sign a contract with the venue in 2019 and will be getting them rates regardless of when it is thanks to having that . Bit like your self if the vat goes up or down is the only think that will fluctuate the price. 

Have heard of one or two places doing what you've said now but few and far between now

We looked into that effort, while I can see why it would be much more tailored to yourself, it looked far more hassle to organise everything. At least with the church/hotel there's a set template that ya just book.

I regret not getting drunker and causing a commotion then.

My registry part I moved from April to October. Didn't want a big celebration then but her parents wouldn't have been able to come so pointless. The celebration we postponed from this June bank holiday to next on her family farm in Wicklow. Made the call around January so we wouldn't have to stress the next few months whether it would be a runner and all the vendors, photographer band etc can do the new date so happy days!

The one in charge of the venue must be reading this cos I haven't heard from her in weeks and then yesterday emails me to say she doesn't have an updated signed contract from us.
Now she wants 30% peyment 3 months before the date. But sure we don't know if it could go ahead 3 months beforehand.
And if we are to push it back to next year I really don't want to be paying double. It's left a bad taste with the place and I think I'd prefer to look at other places.
