With the honeymoone it worked out as about 35k x we did everything exactly how we wanted, had the most beautiful day and paid for a few bits that sometimes people don't pay for so we could have everyone involved in everything (bridesmaids dresses, Accomadation for my bridesmaids the night before, jackets with our names on for the day etc) x I wouldn't regret a thing!! :) xxxxxx

Around 25k including what my parents paid towards but that was for a foreign wedding on a yacht which also included accommodation, a slightly large bar bill, bridesmaids outfits rings etc and a photograph package. Honeymoon is yet to be decided xx

Mines working out about £1,900. I was going to do something else which would've come to around £7000 but due to certain circumstances we've decided to have the wedding sooner and cheaper. This price includes everything! We're lucky that my sister is a photgrapher, getting my dress from wed2b, my cake will be from M&S, paying for 3 separate tiers and decorating myself. The 3 tiers are costing £54.
We're going to a registry office and then a rugby club (we're paying someone to decorate it for us so it will be unrecognizable for £180).

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

25k all in

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

Ours in total was about 12500. We paid for things in installments... And have no debts x

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

We've spent about £8000 on ours. That doesn't include cake and flowers tho has one of my Bessie's is a baker so she's doing us a 4 tier cake and 48 cupcakes as our wedding present and my moms partner owns a florist so they're doing my flowers also my mom and my sisters have seen stuff and brought it (obviously with our blessing) so I reckon we would of easily spent £10-£12000 without all the help, which I'm enormously grateful for because we're having a beautiful dream wedding 6 weeks today xx

5K nice day planned. Hotel afternoon tea for wedding breakfast and a right good booze up with curry and pizza back at the local. Tried to incorporate the major aspects we hold dear as well as giving people a reason to get dressed up for the day.

Does it matter what you spend on your wedding? So long as you have your family and friends there and are marrying your soul mate. In my opinion, this question only gives some people a chance to show off and brag bout spending a small fortune .

UKbride Administrator

3250. Although free honeymoon and photographer x

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

My wedding all In is less than 2k

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

Don't really know tbh we've not been counting some things I've paid for and some things my partner has sorted out such as the photographer and he won't tell me how much he was! Didn't really ever have a budget. Venue was around £2,000, my dress is about the same after the alterations, cake was only 100 odd and car was only 20. Not got a honeymoon booked yet.

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

We spent about £25K including our honeymoon. We did have a budget but got carried away on a few bits, despite trying not to! We did have an amazing day though :)

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

16500 for the wedding (destination wedding in Italy - 8 people), after party back in the UK and the honeymoon all around italy for a few weeks staying in good hotels. If we got married in the UK with a larger guest party, it would be a lot more!

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

Mind was around 3k for everything. Venue, food, eve, bar tab, bridal suit, DJ. You name it. Everything was fantastic. We shopped around but I still considered this a bargain!

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

We spent 3500 and had the day just how we wanted it.Had photo booth,sweet cart,video booth,choc fountain.Theres lots of good prices if you shop around.

UKbride Administrator

Emma Gibson

Jamie Ralph read some of these, it will make you feel better about the cost of ours!

UKbride Administrator
UKbride Administrator 16 Jul 2017

About 10-11 including everything except
A honeymoon. What people spend depends massively on venues, number of guests, type of food etc etc. Factoring in location price differences too. I don't think it helps to compare because everything is so different for everyone!
Have a great day! Xx

4k for everything. Hotel reception on a Saturday, honeymoon of a 3 stage caravan tour of the south of England, dress & suit, rings, photography, everything. Didn't really cut anything out. Had a great day, no one noticed the cheapness. In fact some people said we must have spent a fortune as a previous wedding was 42k and they likened ours to that one but said our food was better. There are lots of ways to cut corners with some creative DIY and some time, makes a difference and makes it all more personal.
