The only essentials are 2 people that love each other, registrar and rings.

You, your partner, a licenced officiant, and 2 witnesses. That’s all you need.

Bride groom witness registered. That is the main legal part. Anything aftervthe wedding ceromay is extra celebration you can do what you want to celebrate from a bbq to a massive paett.your choice and budget allowing.
I saving cost on getting married late the justvparty after with friends and samily without the big sit down speaches and dinners. Local rugby club book for party .
Pinterest is great for diy table decorations woodland theme are good for budgets as can get greeny from walks ect.

Got my dress from wed2b.
Shoes for £30 from yours clothing.
My sister is my photographer.
Got registry office and rugby club. With everything including dress, car, suits etc... It's coming to around £3500 but we've paid for little luxuries. It can be cheaper and still lovely xx

What you need really depends on what you what.
Ceremony and reception venue/s, dress, give notice, registra if needed, rings, witnesses, food. These are bare minimums.

Do you want photographer, wedding cars, entertainment.

Do you need something to fill time between ceremony and reception, do you want a sit down meal.

We're on a budget. We're having a church wedding, reception afterwards with buffet and DJ. Putting snacks on tables in case people get hungry before buffet opens. We're having photographer just for ceremony and posed shots afterwards, one wedding car doing two trips (found somewhere that does a white limo at reasonable price). Gonna be getting wedding dress from somewhere like wed2b or bridal charity stores etc... ( just going get shoes from somewhere one primarily as won't see them under dress anyway) Artificial flowers for bouquet, aldi flowers for anywhere else. And a children's entertainer to keep children occupied before DJ starts

I did my wedding on a budget ....the most important things I am glad that I did was my dress ( sale ) marrying David , my bridesmaids dresses ( charity shops & Lindy bop website ) ,real flowers from website for £150 , my cake made by my bridesmaid , photos ( can get a photo course 2nd year course = check out their portfolio ) a flower wall for our home made photo booth posing against for our guests , real flower petals for the confetti throw as our photographer praised us for that saying the confetti photos are better with real rather than paper confetti !
Drop everything else if it doesn't fit your budget .... Borrow rings or get a holding ring & buy the real thing later on when you can afford it engagement ring is actually still a holding ring & im married now !!!!
Warm wishes for your day.
Love Sarah xx
