Noticed a few of the big shows on BBC Three moving across to BBC 2.....what do you think they're planning? I heard about a BBC budget cut coming soon so this seems likely to me....

Yeah budget cuts, but I don't know why they don't just get rid of BBC Radio 3 or 4? They're moving all the programs away and now ITV tooks syndication rights for Family Guy

I heard something about it being moved online early next year. I did already notice that wedding programme is on BBC One now.

Yes, the idea had been floated before when it was revealed BBC Three is doing the worst in terms of viewing figures or something.

The BBC Trust, which governs the BBC, approved a transition for BBC Three to be a completely online channel from January 2016 a couple of weeks ago. What you're talking about is happening as part of the conditions set out for the transition to be completed (other BBC channels taking some of Three's programmes).

BBC are planning to create a BBC3 online platform to draw more attention to their iPlayer platform. Saves some money but all of your favourite shows will still be available.
