I’m trying to get an idea of what your venues have allowed for a lower guest count than what was originally agreed to given the ongoing pandemic? We signed back in 2018 for 80 guests for a July 2020 wedding and postponed to May 2021. We don’t want to postpone again and want to have the safest event possible so we asked to shift to a much more intimate wedding below the min guest count and our venue told us we’d have to pay 60% of every missing guest below our min of 80. To us, this seems unfair since legally in Ontario, even in the best case green zone, you can only have 50 indoors for a reception.
Would love to hear from you about your venues to get an idea on what would be a reasonable compromise.
