Bridal Budget

This long awaited post is fairly self explanatory so I’ll let the numbers do the talking. This is our wedding budget. I’ve included some items we already had just to give a more realistic overview of how much it would really cost.
  • My Dress £30 (asos)
  • My Shoes £15 (amazing KG bargain)
  • Jewellery £2.50 costume ring from Primark
  • suit £120 (next – but he already had that so it doesn’t really count)
  • Milo’s outfit £7.99 (h&m)
  • Ellas dress £25 (next)
  • Ellas shoes £4 (Primark)
  • My ring £150 (Amanda Wakely)
  • Lees ring £350 (Ernest Jones)
  • Hair & Makeup Hard to say.. I did it all myself and bought nothing new for the occasion so £0
  • Perfume – Vera Wang Lovestruck £19 (bargain from the sales)
  • The ceremony £107.50 (bare minimum costs for a register office wedding)
  • Flowers £8.50
  • Cake <£20 (made it myself so just the cost of ingredients and decorations)
  • Photography £0 – did it ourselves with the help of friends and family
  • “Reception” – The meal came to <£250 but everyone paid for themselves so it only cost us £40
  • Honeymoon £1500 + spending money (the trip to Vegas was originally the wedding itself)

Total – £899.49 (£2,399.49 inc Honeymoon)
As weddings go we hardly spent anything at all and the morning after we were very glad!

      You can get married for very little! Really depends where your priorities lie!

    Did your registar fees come in that £107.50!, Ive got to pay £395 for just the registar to do the service and thats not including the toom hire :O!. Me thinks im being ripped off there!

      I'm assuming your getting married somewhere other than the registry office! They jack up the prices big style for leaving their home turf I'm afraid
