How to plan your dream wedding for £10k

Written by Katie Byrne, published 24th march

With the average UK wedding costing upwards of £20,000, here's how to plan your dream celebration for half!



 

Source your wedding dress from a vintage outlet, where show-stoppers can often be found for a couple of hundred pounds, or head for the sample sales.

Go for a cheaper food option such as an afternoon tea or a picnic hamper per table.

19 hidden wedding costs every couple needs to be aware of

Reduce the venue cost by marrying on a week day or out of season. A Tuesday in November is 50% cheaper than a Saturday in June.

Consider booking your photographer for half a day to secure the more formal set-up shots. Then ask friends to post their reception pics to photo-sharing app WedPics, or use a hashtag on Instagram to access them all.

8 savvy tricks for cutting the cost of your wedding reception

Re-use ceremony flowers at the reception, and choose seasonal blooms.

Collect crockery and decor from charity shops or car boot sales throughout the year.
