More than 10 billion is spent on weddings in the UK each year. According to www.hitched.co.uk , the average wedding has about 133 to 143 guests and costs more than £16,000, not including the honeymoon. The good news is the average cost of a wedding in 2011 was less than the average cost in 2007. The bad news is that, according to CostofWedding.com, the cost of any wedding could increase by 50 to 100 percent if the planners choose designer labels, popular event locations, custom products and services, or if they invite significantly more guests.
Here are a few tips from Lexington that may help ensure wedding costs don’t spiral out of control:
