I don’t want a really expensive wedding. So here’s my plan for a cheap wedding. What do you guys think?
Ceromony: Registry office, say about £100 (this is a guess, if any of you have a better idea of how much a registry office service cost please tell 🙂 )
Reception: Considering there will be a max of 12 people (including OH and me) theres not point hiring a venue to have a meal and a DJ. So I was thinking after the ceromony we’d walk/drive to a pub and have a nice meal. It wouldn’t cost us anything as people would pay for what they order themselves.
Dress/Shoes etc: Honestly, I don’t care about a wedding dress anymore. I was thinking a pretty bridemaid dress from Debenhams especailly since I won’t be having bridesmaids. Shoes, a pretty pair from Shoe Zone/Barratts etc will do. Ditto bag. So dress £60. Shoes £10. Bag £10.
OH Suit: No need for a fancy tux. A nice smart suit from matalan or somewhere would do. Lucky that OH doesn’t really mind where his clothes come from. Say £50 for suit and shoes.
Invitations: Not needed. We’ll invite 10 people, all of which will be family.
Travel: None needed. OH and I will drive to the registry together and guests will make their own way.
Hotel: None needed. OH and I have our own home and guests live close by.
Photography: OH’s childhood friend’s Mum is an amazing photographer. She may do it for free considering she’s know OH since he was a babe but I wouldn’t mind if she charged a little.
Wedding Rings: (Almost forgot this one!) Say £100 each. Nothing fancy.
Thats all I can think of. Am I missing anything? That all adds to £430ish. So, doable?
I am very interested to see what you all think!
