Everyday Loans for Everyday Life



How much does the average wedding cost in 2013?

wedding1Getting married is one of the biggest events that most of us will experience and the pressures to make sure everything is perfect can be quite intense.

A report by a specialist wedding magazine recently estimated that the average wedding cost to be more than £22,000 in the UK this year, so exactly where does all that money go?

Wedding venue

Although many people are quite happy to have a civil ceremony in a local registry office, even that costs money depending on the exact venue you choose. However, there are now many specialist licensed locations that you can choose from too and of course the traditional church wedding is still favoured by a great number of brides and grooms.

Unless you are going for the very basic registry office service you can expect to spend up to £2,000 on venue costs.


Even if the ceremony itself is kept down to a few close friends and family attendees, most people like to have a larger gathering for a reception and party afterwards. Again, choice of venue means costs vary greatly and catering can run from putting on a cold buffet to a full banquet of several courses.

All in all, bridesmagazine.co.uk estimates the average combined cost is somewhere in the region of £12,500.


After spending all that money on making sure other people get to enjoy your wedding, it’s only fair that the couple at the heart of the occasion should get to go on honeymoon and pamper themselves.

A honeymoon is more than a straightforward holiday as it is something that should be chosen to make memories to last a lifetime, and for this reason it often costs more than the average getaway. Expect to budget around £3,000 for this essential part of any wedding plan.

Of course many people try to save for their wedding costs but often borrowing funds is the only way to really make sure everything gets done exactly how you want it to be.

Loans for a wedding are  available to give you access to the funds you may require for your big day. Of course, no such loan should be taken lightly, and as with any form of borrowing it is important that you are able to meet repayments.
