So sorry you had to call off your wedding. What about a family reunion? If a lot of your family memebers were thinking of attending, it might be fun. Or a class reunion?

I would contact a local charity of my choice and offer to host a reception, with guests of their choosing. I would not solicit on the internet– you will get every scam artist looking for a free meal coming out of the woodwork– ask around and you’ll find some worthy causes. In Seattle, worst case, an email to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation would probably be a good way to put you in touch with someone who can enjoy these gifts.  

A non-profit is probably not going to reimburse you for your deposits or pay for the remaining bill, but some of this gift may be tax-deductable, however that may depend to some extent on the nature of the event the charity wishes to hold. 

You can also contact local wedding planners to see if they have a late-booking coouple in need of a venue, but that would not be charity. But you’d have a greater chance to recoup the money you’ve spent.

Contact your favorite Charity and have a benefit! Also, if you do that it might be considered a tax write off… maybe?

I would agree with the family reunion idea since this would be a time most family may have made plans to be there already.  That way you are surrounded by people who love you.

@WhatShouldIDo:  There is actually a website for this! http://www.bridalbrokerage.com/

I just read about it on Jezebel, they sell your cancelled wedding. I don’t know much about it, but something to check out? Sorry to hear that, hope you can get at least some money back!
