Marrying the love of your life these days isn’t cheap, but that’s the tough reality of wanting to marry your partner. Music, food, table decorations, dresses, and suits are just some of the costs you’ll need to think about to ensure it’s a perfect day – and that’s not even including the wedding venue. However, there’s plenty you can do to save costs so you can have a wedding within your budget, and that includes getting married in another city. But, what cities are the most expensive for weddings?
The capital of England is currently one of the most expensive cities to get married, which doesn’t come as much as a surprise. Even if you wanted to head into the city centre for a couple of drinks with friends, you’re looking at a fiver for a drink. Even when you look at food for the venue, on average, most couples spend more than £8,000. But, that price is always going to rise if you’re opting for a London venue. A wedding in Inner London can often cost around £45,000, and that’s just on average. Greater London is slightly less, but again, it’s still very expensive. If you want to make UK wedding savings, you may want to look online for cheaper venues.
The north west of England can also prove to be a costly affair with the average wedding racking up to nearly £40,000. Manchester offers excellent wedding venues and settings for couples to take advantage of, but because most of the places within Manchester are classy, it means prices can soon add up. Of course, if you’re saving for a house, getting married in Manchester may not be on the cards. However, if you’re looking for an excellent setting with a choice of venue and you’re not worried about the cost, Manchester should be near the top on your list.
The English seaside resort town is also known to be expensive for weddings, primarily because of the location. Not only does the location offer amazing settings for couples but it’s also a relatively short commute to London, so it’s not far off in terms of wedding prices in that respect. Brighton is also one of the most popular cities in the country, so it’s always flooded with people and that means higher prices on pretty much every service you require. If you’re looking for a summer wedding, though, Brighton will definitely be able to provide you with the wedding experience you’ve only ever dreamed of.
It’s no surprise that London is one of the most expensive cities to get married in. After all, it is one of the most expensive cities in the UK for anything you want to buy. It’s also one of the most expensive places to live, which means services and people looking to make a living need to increase their costs. If you really want to get married on the cheap, it could be a good idea to get married in the south west where costs are nearly halved.
