‘Chrisley Knows Best’ Star Savannah Chrisley & Fiance Nic Kerdiles Postponed Their Wedding Because “Things Moved Way Too Fast”; Plan to “Go Back to Dating”

“In other words, we’re holding off for a ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ wedding special… “

Savannah Chrisley‘s wedding to former NHL player Nic Kerdiles has been put on hold indefinitely – a decision the Chrisley Knows Best star claims she and her fiancé made together. 

According to The Sun, Savannah and Nic were set to tie the knot at the beginning of May; however, she revealed on an new episode of her family’s podcast, Chrisley Confessionals, that she and Nic opted instead to postpone their nuptials and go back to being boyfriend and girlfriend.

“We both realized that things moved way too fast and we needed to go back to dating,” she told her dad, Todd Chrisley. “I just knew we had to work on things on a different level. We had to dig deeper and it’s hard.” 

While Savannah and Nic have reportedly gone “back to dating,” both still claim to be engaged to each other in their Instagram bios.

As fans of the Chrisley family may recall, Savannah, 22, and Nic, 26, announced their engagement in April of last year, though Nic reportedly proposed in December in 2018 after the couple had been dating for more than a year.

Well y’all…we did the dang thing!! 😍😭 Never in a million years did I think I would be this young and have found my forever person. You are the best decision I have ever made. You love me through all my flaws and imperfections. I’m so glad I didn’t settle for less because now I have everything I could want in a man and more. You know how to handle me. You know what I need when I feel like my world is in crumbling. You know how to make me smile on good days and bad days. You always listen to what I need to say. You support my decisions. You motivate me in whatever I’m doing. You love me unconditionally but more importantly, you respect me. How do you do it? I know it's not easy all the time (let’s be real…most of the time) but I appreciate you more than you could ever imagine!!

Despite having eluded the following month that wedding plans were underway, Savannah says she no longer feels the need to follow a wedding timeline.

“It’s 2020 and you know what, it’s OK not to follow the guidelines and the whole time frame that everyone follows,” Savannah explained on the podcast, while also mentioning some advice she received from a friend. 

“She said, ‘When you get married, the good things in your relationship become great and the bad things in your relationship become worse,’ and I truly sat on that and I thought about it and there was just so much that Nic and I needed to work through,” Savannah continued. “And there was a lot of pressure because we got engaged, it was public and everyone expected a wedding.” 

“Whatever y’all end up doing, just plan on having a camera crew present!”

In fact, the couple had to shut down breakup rumors back in October after Savannah debuted a dramatic hair makeover, which some initially believed was the result of a breakup, given Savannah’s post, encouraging ladies to “do what YOU want to do.” Around the same time, Savannah had been photographed often without her engagement ring.

At the time, Nic said he and Savannah’s relationship wasn’t perfect but they were still engaged and “working on ourselves everyday” – something Savannah confirmed they are still doing today. 

“It’s been a whirlwind of things and we’re still working on things,” she said. “We’re both in therapy. We’re doing what we need to do.” 

Savannah also noted during the podcast that her wedding would have been postponed anyway due to C0VID-19.

  1. After a year of dating you know whether or not you want to marry that person. That doesn’t mean you have to rush getting engaged and/or married. Props for them for taking a step back and not becoming another divorce statistic.


    1. I think the pressure is coming from her parents and what and how they think things should be. I’d be surprised if they do marry he seems way more in love with her then him . I think she wants the ring, the party etc but I’d be surprised if it happens


      1. He probably wanted to slow it down because she looked exactly like her dad when she cut her hair. Not a great look. Something about her seems bitchy. Idk why specifically…but she gives me mean girl vibes.


  2. moved too fast but they got engaged in 2018 after a year of dating? I was expecting to read like 6 months or something. But kudos to them for realizing they weren’t ready for marriage yet!
