That's more in line with what ours cost tbh. Different country I know.

Also, different numbers of guests is really a huge factor in price... Some people invite 30, some 300.

Aye we were pretty ruthless with the guests, none of this inviting-everyone-in-the-office s****, even then we had about 70.

:thup: I didn't have too many people given the travel, but her family probably had like, 20 sets of parents alone. Barely anyone from work, but in total we hit maybe 140. Invited 170ish.

You've got me scared that we're totally under-budgeting :lol: although I don't doubt ours will be very different to yours based on your budget Froggy.

Can't polish a turd.

 :lol:

My girlfriend wants to sew her own dress for the wedding, hopefully that means more budget for my suit...and probably a crying fiancé in about 7 months time.

At least some people try to polish it though.

If you're getting a relatively normal suit it's worth getting a decent one like, not like you can't wear it again for other occasions such as court appearances and dressing up as Clockwork Orange characters.

:lol: Ah I see, I thought that was pretty cheap considering. I think I want to buy mine, get it tailored etc.

Was at the dome in Whitley for a 50th recently. Very smart inside. Room would accommodate 100+
Beer was £4.60 a pint (Coors iirc)

Food was first class. Maybe ask about there options.

The Biscuit Factory started doing weddings a few years ago and it was canny like. I’m not too fussed about art but it’s a decent building and the reception area downstairs is massive - they were just starting out when I went so they’ve probably gotten better.

Food was absolutely s**** at the time like but they might have sorted it.

On a similar note, I went to a wedding at the Discovery Museum just before Christmas and the food was honestly atrocious. Like worse than a bad school dinner, so I'd avoid there.

Through budgeting with flowers, wedding rings and bridesmaid dresses, we've managed to shave off a grand.

Also had a friend of a friend step forward and offer to make our cake. So happy with that. :lol:

We're gonna try for Newcastle, got a venue booked in but we haven't actually seen it, and we're in talks with Karma Kitchen to do the food...but we've never eaten there :lol:. Up in Newcastle for this weekend with Saz so we'll see the venue and try the food out.

So food, venue and marquee are all but sorted. Guest list pretty much finalised, minus some inevitable politics. Need to send out invitations next week, thinking of making them to keep costs down, gonna try a few designs this week to see if we can do anything resembling decent, if not we'll just do a vistaprint type job. She's going to make her own dress, so that shouldn't cost much more than a hundred or two.

Haven't looked into flowers yet, or decorations. Are they costly?

We have a friend who is a DJ so he'll hopefully do a set, then we both love music so it will just be homemade playlists for the rest of the time. PA with the venue...I'd like to test it out though because the whole night is basically going to be music and food.

Haven't thought about a photographer yet, was thinking about just asking various friends who are good at photography to do it casually, maybe having a load of disposables available as well. No videographer :lol:

Actual ceremony we don't care about at all but we think we should probably give the guests something to look at so maybe we'll try and book the civic centre if it's free, nowt fancy. Few hundred quid.

Think it should be about 6-7k, if all goes to plan. Inevitably there will be hidden costs.

Her bouquet was £90. :lol: Flowers are dear enough. Think we've got all the flowers and decoration sorted for about £700.

Like f*** we're having a bouquet then. :lol: Is that flowers to chuck? The more I hear about weddings the more I want mine to just be a party where people get dressed up in nice clothes.

This might sound a bit mad, but I was at a wedding last year that had a magician going around the tables (think more Derren Brown than Paul Daniels) who was incredible and all the guests loved. I know it sounds proper naff, but he was honestly class and not at all cringey.
