Hi B2B's. What are you all spending on your weddings? I've seen a lot of £2k budgets on here but ours is coming in quite a lot higher. It all adds up I guess. We don't want to short change. I just want to know we're not the only ones.
Mines coming in at about 6k. But we are hoping to shave a bit off here and there.
We are only just starting to plan our wedding and will only be having a small wedding but looking at the prices of venues around my area we will be going well over 4k once we factor in all the bits and bobs 😫
Honestly we're doing it as it comes but atm it's coming quite cheap
Mines come in at £12,000 x
Mines coming in at around 8k
We are spending approximately 11k x
Mine is about 10k might be cheaper than that
Ours has come in about 10/11k x
£7000-£7500. We’ve not gone too OTT but we are having a nice day. Xx
We are saving 5k but will likely come just over 4k :)
Not easy to compare cost as loads of various factors, number of guests, location, number on wedding party, amount of personal touches etc.
Roughly 35k but we have 300 guests
We spent just over £700, on ours.
We are looking at between 8 and 9k all in
500 quid all in.
Budgeted 10k but more like 11k
We’ve budgeted £12k and so far with getting discounts on stuff we’re looking at £10500 🙂 x
Atm we have only booked church n venue and its come to 5k already. I want to do things on a budget but i dont want to look back and think i wish we did XYZ because its our big day x
I priced up quite a few different places. I had 65 day guests and another 40 extra on the night..
I found that a room whether it be in a pub or community centre after a church wedding would cost me between 8-10k inc cost of church wedding/ cars etc.
Hotels and barns then between 15 and 20k
Then a few extra Extravagant places where I’d have exclusive use were coming in about 25k-35k
I did want a church wedding and a sit down meal though plus lots of extras and had to do a Saturday (I DIYd loads and saved a fortune too!) I think you can get the cost down if you don’t mind doing things differently
Ours was £8.500 altogether we got a honeymoon with that too
Ours will be about £14k
How are people managing with a 2k budget. I'm struggling to find a venue alone less than 3k and that's doing it with a cheap season package. Never mind dress, cars, etc
Keeping ours under £2,000 due to having to!! not having a big sit down meal not having hundreds of people, not having a car, photographer, or videos, or anything special really no honeymoon either as we have 4 children ...did my invites on vista print £30 for 200 for the after celebrations. Registry office fees and £90 for hall hire! My dress isnt the £800 one i fell for as i just don't have that kind of money to spend...i ordered my dress online as didnt have anyone to go "dress shopping" with. Had no one but my other half to show when it turned up either 🤣 Not really having a dream day But i am marrying my soul mate and id do that in a flipping bin bag.. and thats the main thing. Can not see the point in spendig so much money in 1 day!
About £13k xx
Looking at around 13k for 72 guests. Never intended to spend so much but it’s something you only do once.
Our venue with food etc is £4k so with all the extras it's coming in approx £6k and I thought I was doing things quite cheap lol
Were at 19k at present for 70 guests but that’s not factored in bridesmaids/grooms dresses/attire yet.
Just started organising mine for next year and I’ve got 60 sit down with 120 evening ... going to cost about 8k
Doesn’t matter how much anyone spends as long as the end goal happens - end goal being married to your partner
Including our honeymoon and mini moon with 95 guests we are spending a little over 40k
We are older, no plans to have children, already have a house and we both have good jobs, we’ve decided to just go with it
Good luck to everyone making your day special to you xx
Our venue (without catering costs) is 7k, so probably 20-25 by the time we’ve got everything else x
We are having a very small intimate wedding for 15 close family and friends. Late morning ceremony, then off to a set 3 course lunch at a rural pub/hotel who are letting us exclusively use there second smaller room in the restaurant for no charge (they will make the money on the food and drinks bill). We (bride and groom) and 3 couples of close friends are staying the night at pub/hotel so will meet down at the bar later on in the evening for drinks. Our main expense was my dress and the church but all will come in for under 2k.
3k all in with photographer cars and venue ect dress was second hand but got the dress I wanted that would of cost me 1,300 For less than 100 doing every thing down to bouquets my self (to save cost and because I find it lovely doing it my self) small numbers of 40 and then another 1,300 For honey moon with our 2 kids xx
Hi most weddings cost more than £10k you spend what you want its up to you :)
Ours is coming in around 10k 72 day guests and 100 for evening that's everything all in. Think it depends on what you want for your special day x
We've spent just short of £7k but it's a combination of everything we wanted with the people we wanted x
If you do lots of things yourself rather than hiring people in (for example venue decoration, making your own cake, etc) then you can save loads of money. There are loads of really good guides on how to DIY and save money on a wedding here: http://weddingbudgeter.com/blog/ ️
Roughly 30k 😳 ... doesn’t matter what is spent so long as you marry the person you love xx
We're doing r whole wedding for 2k.its looking as good as any.u don't need to spend more then u want to u just need to shop around a bit.were not having wedding gifts (as we have 4children and have lived together for years!!) were asking for a donation towards our honey moon instead.i have also made a lot of wedding items.
£10000 looking at about £500 over budget once my dress alterations have been done. My mum paid for my dress (£2000) and this bridesmaids dresses. Also the cake is being made as a wedding present for us. So I guess about £14000 if we were paying it all x
Mine has come in at about 20k 🙈 it's all about what you want to speand/can afford to spend and at the end of that day what you want. My venue is costing 8k alone as I wanted to get married in a Scottish castle 🙈
In all fairness, you spend what you want to and as long as you are happy then nobody can tell you otherwise 😊😊😊
We spend about 3k make that day all about us not makin every one else happy x
Spend to your means - some venues are more expensive than others but we equally found some that were cheaper and fitted our Vision. Depends also on how much you want to do yourself vs what’s easier to pay others to do!
Our is maybe about 16-17k. Don't know exactly because parents have helped, but that's it roughly xx
Ours came to just under £10,000 for absolutely everything. Could have done it cheaper though. You need to know exactly what you want and then start shopping around for it. For instance my dress was made for me, unique. You’d think that’d be expensive but it was only £300. I started looking really early for bridesmaids dresses so I managed to find some stunning ones in the sale and stored them away. The flower girls dresses turned out to be one of the most expensive things I bought but they’ve been used again at parties and things so worth it in the end
I wouldn't worry about the budgets people share on here, or compare yourself to other weddings... The average spend on a UK wedding is nowhere near £2k, or even £10k!
There are lots of people who will be spending an awful lot more than £2k, but will be unlikely to shout about the cost on a public forum!
Spend what you can afford and what you feel is right for you and your partner personally. That's all that matters.
We budgeted 12k but now it’s at 17.5k
We don’t have wedding cars and luckily my soon to be father in law is a wedding photographer so saved money there I dread to think what it would have been . We have 6 bridesmaids we’ve paid for everything for them . We have a videographer . We’re having a bbq and evening buffet instead of sit down meal so saved money there . We are hiring our centrepieces and table and chair covers to save money , we have a dj instead of a band to save money . We get married in July this year and my sister gets married August next year and her budget it 30 k it depends what you want x
6k on the wedding and 6k on the honeymoon x
Depends on what you want . My wedding was £1200 for wedding cars, makeup and hair, photographer, sweet table, food, venue, DJ, cake, dress and decorations. It is possible to do so as long as you are happy with what you are paying and it's not going to get you in debt then it doesn't matter what other people are/have paid. 😊
£30 k including honeymoon x
Ours is all In a hotel, 40 in the day 80 at night. Looking at 6k for everything. However we bought a cancellation so would have been around 9k x
All in ours ended up being about £11k....if you can afford it then i don't see an issue, have what you want and what you can afford :)
Just my venue comes in at around £4250 so it's going to be quite a lot of money. I'm having around 40 day guests 50 eve and a December wedding to cut costs.
We’ve budgeted about £17k. I think it’s all dependent on the sort of day you want, and the amount of money you have! We’ve recently (sadly) received some inheritance from hubby to bes Grandma, and I know she’d want us to spend it on our day. We could have done it cheaper but as I say, that’s the day we want to have. Approx 100 day guests and 200 evening. Xxx
Up to now ours is £3000 just for the venue, 3 course breakfast and evening buffet.......( OH picked the venue) still got everything else to sort ( over a year and half away tho so plenty of time yet) our thoughts are we are only going to do this once so we will be making it a special day for the 2 of us and our closest family. But as long as I have a lovely dress and a brill photographer I’m happy
Don’t be scared to ask for discounts on the venue ect, I did and got 450 knocked off
About 10k I won the venue which saved 2,500. Sit down meal for 30 is over 2k. I spent all in all for my dress and accessories 1000. I paid for 5 tailed suit hire which is 500. My 3 bridesmaids have cost around 400. Luckily we've got a friend who is a Photographer so she knocked over a 1000 off the bill!
Approx £7k, we both have big families! But we want a day to remember without going overboard x
I'm only just starting to look I know I can maybe have £10,000 but my food alone is coming up to the £4000 never mind anything else
Mine is £15,000, but I'm really hoping it will be less than that. The main thing is the venue for me. I'm hoping to get the decorations etc in a budget.
