Wedding Season and the Costs

21 September 2023

Wedding Season

It’s “wedding season”.  Are YOU or a family member getting married this month?  Or perhaps you’re planning for a 2024 wedding?

Organising a wedding is costly BUT so is ATTENDING a wedding! 

According to The National Wedding Survey by the average cost of a wedding in the UK was £18,400 in 2022! That’s up 6% from 2021! 

63% of couples said they received money from family or friends towards the cost of their wedding. 

Meanwhile NimbleFins reported that all-in costs for a UK wedding can reach £30,000 when honeymoon planning (and more) is added in. 

To add to this confirmed the average cost to ATTEND a wedding is now almost £1000

Weddings are EXPENSIVE.
