    A lot can change in 3 years. Even if you changed locations, there will always be some risk of some sort of disaster, terrorist or other. I would stick with the Paris plans for now.

    Stick with Paris. Realistically nothing will happen.

    Without meaning to sound harsh, Life must go on. If we all stay in our houses, afraid of the possibility that something might happen, then who wins? The odds of an act of terrorism being your cause of death is tiny.

    You are talking about an event that is many years away. A lot can and will change. I wouldn’t worry about it right now.

    As previously mentioned, Belgium is not in the UK….anywho, keep it in Paris. You are talking 3 years from now. It would be crazy to change it for anything happening this year. I went to Paris soon after the attacks, it was fine. 

    If you are going to change it (I don’t think you should) I would not pick Fiji or Tahiti. Everything is ridiculously expensive there, it’s a very long and expensive flight from the US. Somewhere in the caribbean would be much easier logistically.

    What do you mean the United Kingdom areas? Belgium and France are not in the UK …

    Also checking the news!

    As others have said- no. Don’t change. The odds of anything happening are very slim. We were in Morocco a few years ago. We visited a cafe every day. A few hours after we left on our last day a bomb went off. Would it stop me going back to Morocco? Heck no!

    If you are choosing a vineyard location, you will be well out of the centre of Paris anyway. I wouldn’t change your plans.

    Terrorist attacks generally happen in areas in which there are large amounts of people, a vineyard wouldn’t likely be the focus of a terrorist attack.

    A wedding in a French vineyard would be amazing, I’d recommend the Rhone Valley, their wines are fantastic.

    The Rhone Valley is in the south of France, which has great weather too! 😊

    1. Paris and Brussels  are not “the United Kingdom areas” any more than Tampa and Orlando are “the Cuba area.” Completely separate countries, many miles apart, not related.

    2. Considering there is a mass shooting on an almost daily basis in the US, it seems a bit of an over-reaction to worry about a vow renewal in France  and not worry about going to the grocery store twice a week.

    3. You have three years to decide. Plane tickets dont even go on sale till 330 days before the flight.
