New study reveals the nation's thoughts on wedding day spending

New study reveals the nation's thoughts on wedding day spending


Written by Katie Byrne


According to the research, over half of the population believes a wedding should cost no more than £5,000

 

A new study has uncovered the UK's attitude towards wedding day costs, with over half of those quizzed saying a couple's nuptials should cost no more than £5,000.

Typically the figure bandied around for the average UK wedding is in the area of £15-£20,000 - although the study suggests that 2015 couples actually plan to spend a fraction of that on their big days.

The study - which quizzed over 1,000 people across the country - also found that only 6% believe that £15,000 is a 'reasonable' amount to spend on a wedding.

One clear factor behind the dip in the big-day spend is the ever-increasing trend for DIY details, with couples increasingly choosing to hand-make various elements of their wedding day.

Paula Gorry from Stampin' Up! UK, who conducted the study, said: "Spending big is no guarantee of a wonderful day. Couples recognise the sentimental appeal of putting their own stamp on the occasion - whether that's hand-crafting invites or place-settings, or making their own bouquets".

She continued: "The trend for doing it yourself is not just about cutting costs. It's about individuality and self-expression, and results can look stunning".
