Avoid expensive traditions
The typical wedding venue costs £4,600 to hire but you can cut your costs by 20% or more by opting to get married out of season or on a weekday. “You can also negotiate 10% off with suppliers if you get married when they are less busy,” says Kate Thompson of wedding planning website Confetti.co.uk.
Francesca Cribb from hitched.co.uk recommends looking for a last-minute cancellation. Other ways to save include ditching a live band in favour of an MP3 playlist (typically saving £500) and having single stem bouquets (saving around £60 per bouquet). Hiring a photographer by the hour could also reduce the typical £1,000 bill to a few hundred pounds – get competitive quotes by using wedding photographer comparison sites.
