Would you make non-refundable payments for June 2021 wedding?

Hi,
We are due to get married in Spain in June 2021 (mid week). This was booked pre-coronavirus, however we haven’t booked all suppliers yet.

We need to book catering but the company have advised we would need to pay 500 euros deposit and then a further payment February 2021. Should the June wedding need to be transferred to 2022, all these payments would be non-transferable and non-refundable and would need to be paid all over again.

I have dreamsaver wedding insurance but it seems from other posts they would not pay out if weddings are cancelled due to a government act.

I don’t know what to do. Should I pay suppliers hoping for the best? Or not pay, and hope to book something last minute should June 2021 be safe?

    How confident do you feel being able to book your chosen company at short notice?

    I’m not sure how short notice I could do it with it being food I guess preparations need to be done in advance, I’m not sure how far in advance though. And it’s essential to feed everyone so I can’t be left without any catering. Just tricky.
