Bridal Brokerage Recycles Weddings So Someone Else Can Buy Your “Special” Day

by Hazel Chua

People fall in and out of love all the time. Unfortunately, some couples decide to break up after making all sorts of wedding plans and preparations. Not only is that exceptionally heartbreaking, it also results in a whole lot of wasted time and money.

So many weddings are getting canceled every year (over 250,000!) that it has caused services like Bridal Brokerage to emerge.

Bridal BrokerageBridal Brokerage basically buys cancelled weddings and sells them to interested buyers who are hoping to put together a wedding within a short period of time. It’s a win-win-win situation, at least according to the wedding brokers: sellers get their deposits back, suppliers enjoy uninterrupted business, and the buyers can purchase pre-planned weddings at lower prices.

It’s an interesting business but the whole thing is pretty sad at the same time. One good thing (if there’s any to be found) regarding the sheer number of cancelled weddings is that at least the couples who broke up before tying the knot won’t end up getting a divorce a couple of weeks or months later.
