Colleague getting married next month. We were discussing the preparation for his wedding this morning and I was completely horrified at what he and his fiance are paying. Getting married in an orangery in a big house - reception in one of the other buildings on the site. They are paying £950 for the use of the place (not including the fee for the registrar and the marriage certificate). £21 a head for stand-up buffet and £4.50 a head for a glass of bucks fizz at the reception. In October? AIBU to be shocked at that! OK I got married 17 yrs ago but even so..... twas a lovely do in just as nice a place.
So glad parents don't have to pay for their DD's weddings anymore
my best friend had a 26K wedding... and although it was lovely, it seemed a bit expensive to us! Their's was in october, in a nice hotel, everything in the same room, sit down meal then an evening buffet.
we've set a budget of 6 K for ours, but we're planning to marry overseas (in my DP's country) which is a bit cheaper than here. but wedding prices now are extortionate so far as I can tell!
