I’ve never heard of this, but I do think it’s genius.  Might as well make the best of a bad situation.

Personally, I’d be afraid of doing something like this, just because I’d be afraid of being tied to a contract with a vendor that may not suit the vision I have in mind (I’m thinking things like photography styles and vendor layout).  I look at it this way- my wedding is an investment in both mine and FI’s time and money, so I would like to know that our wedding meets our expectations.

It is a specific idea market, but I think it is actually a great win-win if you are open minded.  If your idea is “I want to get married in the next X number of months” and you aren’t picky, I can see it being a boon.  If you are a very picky bride, obviously this isn’t for you.  I wonder how al-a-cart you could go.  Like, if I was just looking for a photographer because mine cancled last minute, that would be fantastic. 

It looks like they have sites that list that they have dates open.  That would be useful to the last minute bride.  All of those girls in December that wanted to get married by May, that could be REALLY useful.

Misswhowedding:  Definitely aggree with you there- it looks very convenient for brides who are planning a wedding on short notice but know where they stand in terms of their budget, and are really open to anything 🙂  (I’m a worry wart, so I’d be risking a stroke going this route lol- but I know a lot of ladies who would love this!)

I heard about this on a local radio station and couldn’t believe it. I visited the site and i have to say, whoever came up with it is a friggin genious! I can’t imagine the emotional awfulness that is tied with canceling a wedding, but to add insult to injury there’s the time, money and effort that goes to waste. Selling a cancelled wedding is a nice fail safe. I admit I would be a bit skeptical when it comes to taking on someone else’s vision..plus, my fiancé thinks that taking on a failed/cancelled wedding would be somewhat of bad luck. But hey, if you’re lucky enough to find something you like, then all parties win.
