If you’re getting married on a budget, then you’ll know that a large part of your wedding cost comes down to your wedding venue. When it comes to your wedding budget breakdown, couples getting married tend to spend around 40% of their total budget on the wedding venue. When you factor in the cost of wedding catering and drinks at your wedding venue, then it’s important to make sure that you choose wisely when it comes to where you’re holding the big day.
Luckily we’ve put together a list of budget wedding venues throughout the UK, many of which are affordable wedding venues and offer wedding packages that can help cut down your costs.
Ceremony and Reception Venues
When thinking about whether you want a separate ceremony venue from your reception venue, bear in mind that some venues offer a budget friendly option if you hold both events at their venue. You may think that cheap wedding reception venues don’t exist, but you might be surprised at how affordable wedding venues can be.
Weekday weddings are always cheaper than opting for a Friday or Saturday celebration. Monday to Wednesday weddings come in cheapest of all, however you will have to ask your guests to take holiday from work. If you don’t want to do this then a Sunday wedding is your next best option.
Another important consideration is to look at the budget wedding packages that the venue has to offer. These packages can include many elements that you would otherwise have to pay for separately, like flowers and catering. This option can often be more cost-effective helping you keep within your budget and taking the stress away from finding suppliers yourself!
Once you’ve chosen your venue it is important to think about the various decorations you might want in order to stay within your budget. Talk to your wedding venue about things that they have done previously and any budget wedding ideas they have executed well in the past.
