Budgeting For Your Wedding

Budgeting for your wedding is often a difficult task and will probably start off as mainly guesswork, but if you stick to it you could save money in the long run and prevent your costs from spiraling out of control. With the cost of the average UK wedding at around £15,000 even slightly over-spending could cost you hundreds of pounds.

Before you begin your budget, it would be best to get an accurate idea of how much money you will have to put towards your wedding from savings and any family contributions.

To give you an idea, we've put together some costs for an average wedding based on 100 guests. Prices vary from wedding to wedding and some couples will have different priorities, but this should be a good starting point.
