Average Wedding Costs

But remember I’ve missed a few things off…



Kerry - Pfffft! Blooming rip off that’s what wedding are. If you are careful and budget well, and DIY some things, you could get it down to half the price 🙂

Nicola & Josh - I’ve just added my whole wedding costs up and they come to £16945. We had saved for about 4 years and this includes everything you have listed above and a few more little extras. Our cake cost £600 but its a fancy 6 tier cake with extra cup cakes. it was a must hae after seeing it!

Simon K - I have to say its a nice change to see blog posts like this when looking for wedding info! I’m currently planning everything with a little help from my bride to be (hope she doesn’t read this)

Currently it looks like a £5800 bill. But this is without photos/video and the honeymoon so I expect this to rise.
