    My fiance and I have decided that we might like to have a registry office wedding. After speaking to some friends I discovered that it was not just a room that you go into and sign some papers. That there can be more to it :) You can still get dressed up, you can still have music, and your wedding party......but is it silly to go the whole nine yards without actually doing it big? We are trying to save money for a house. Any ideas on how to make it special, and any opinions on registry office weddings are so welcome. As neither of us have ever been to one. We want to know the good, the bad and the ugly. Thanks ;) xx

    I'm having a registry office wedding
    I get to walk in and down the isle as if I were at a church and have music and readings read out (as long as its not religious) also get all the photos more music played at the end get to do exchange of the rings, just so much cheaper and a but shorter than a church wedding :) I've also never been to a wedding but I'm still having my big dress the bridesmaids the flowers the cars ect.. :) xx

    Registry office weddings can be every bit as special as church or venue weddings - a civil ceromony follows the same pro forma regardless of whether it's at a hotel or a registry office.

    I don't think it's silly at all to go the whole hog - at the end of the day, a church wedding isn't for everybody.

    I had a civil service, albeit at the venue and the only difference between that and a church one was that there were no religious elements and it was shorter - but we could have made it longer if we had wanted to....

    I wouldn't dream of not having the dress or the bridesmaids etc - after all, you're still getting married at the end of the dAy!

    I must admit, it isn't neccessarily a cheaper option - our registrar cost £515 for the day and £70 to give notice, so getting on for £600 - which I know some people are having churches for less than that, however we are both atheists and it didn't feel right to get married in church. It does very from district to district though and is less if you get married at the actual reg office - I think ours would have been about £350 if we had gotten married there.

    Of course you can make it special. It's as special as you want it to be and if you want the full works then go for it. The most special thing is getting hitched xxx

    Well it would have been less if you do it with just two witnesses in the little box room, but if you want to hire the ceromony room so you can have guests, that's what it is!

    York is deffo one of the more expensive though - you'd have thought they would be standardised xx

    Weddings are about the couple and not the setting. The more you make it about the two of you, the more special it will be.
