Exactly! Look around, Phone some hotels or different venues and ask for a price, you will do it everything is possible. If people offer to pay for things except there offer it helps loads. Xxx

There's always ways to save money. Second hand wedding dress or even department stores sell them! Look for a cake maker who works from home rather than a shop. A wedding breakfast takes up alot of the budget so (unless you really wanted one) you could just have an evening buffet? You could do your own flowers? Maybe hire a hall rather than hotel etc for your reception. Weddings don't have to be expensive x

We are having a BBQ in the garden for our reception (in July). The caterer is charging 1500 for 70 people supplying sausages, burgers, chicken, lamb steaks, kebabs and 5 salads. Also includes plates, cutlery, condiments etc. That is the most expensive thing for us.

Not a chance I could get ours to that. I do think it depends what you want and I've seen loads of wedding programmes and people do it on £1500 and they are lovely. I want a Saturday hotel, may wedding so I have to pay the price for it x

I suppose it depends on what you have in mind for your venue and food and what time of day, you could do a 3pm wedding which leads straight to night doo etc.

Thank you all for your has opened my eyes..this is the first and only time I'm getting married..bit it's my fiancé's second..he's left the planning up to me as he is happy with registry office and friends having a buffet at the community hall.

I have no real clue bit would prefer a more traditional feel... Church or blessing at least on top of registrar wedding... a cake and bouquet... would like a breakfast for wedding guests but a definitely a evening bbq or's the venue that I'm struggling with as limited to Northampton seen a fully inclusive for 80 guests in Somerset last min awhile ago just need outfits and flowers and cake for 4500 beautiful setting..but my guests and elderly father of 86 well not be able to travel....if not for my dad I would marry abroad...can have it all for 15 guests at 2000...just outfits and guests need to sort flights and book half price Caribbean cake, flowers and music included.
