A total cost of £1500 is brilliant. And I love the idea of using a Facebook events page. Ingenious! Good luck with your preparations although it sounds as if you have most angles covered.

Sounds fantastic! Think we spent about that, too, and had a perfect day with a great party. I also spent more on my dress than any of the other components. And, even though I've only worn it twice (had a second reception up in Scotland for hubby's relatives), it was definitely worth it and exactly the dress I wanted which happened to be on sale with £400 off. We did all the food ourselves, with the help of various relatives and their ovens. And we only spent about £200 on the honeymoon as we got almost £1000 in money gifts from our guests (requested money towards honeymoon, or nothing, as we'd been living together for 7 years already and had everything we needed).

Your friend's Burlesque Fire Hoola-Hooping show sounds amazing.

I think it's very possible to have a wonderful day and not break the bank and am always quite shocked at the £20,000 average wedding price tag that I see bandied about the press.


what a great idea - have you worked out cost of paying full price for everything? it would be quite a big sum. my favourite weddings are always the ones with a personal touch an not a sniff of the bridezilla about them. I hope it goes well
