The average cost of a wedding has recently soared to £20,000! With that said, it’s no surprise that brides are seeking out ideas on how to afford a wedding. Here, we give you our expert tips on tying the knot without breaking the bank. 

#1 Set a Realistic Budget 

Like most things you’re saving for, you’ll want to set a realistic budget of exactly how much you’d like to spend. Break it down, for example; how much do you want to spend on your dress, shoes, venue etc? If you have a budget in place, you are more likely to stick to it and won’t risk overspending.

#2 Ask Your Family 

Few couples are able to finance their weddings themselves and so asking your parents if they’d be happy to support you financially would be a good starting point. Even if they can’t cover the wedding, they may want to contribute to your dress or chosen wedding photographer which is a massive help when you think that dresses and photographers come in at around £2,000 each.

#3 Save Your Pennies 

The more you can scrimp and save, the more you’ll have to spend on your wedding day. Think about switching your current energy supplier to a cheaper company, if you have two cars, think about car sharing or getting the bus into work. If you pay for a bus every day, think about getting a week pass and soon you’ll see your expenditure decreasing dramatically.
