The wedding of our year went really well last weekend and I’m pleased to report that we didn’t go crazy at the bar. One of the few that didn’t, I believe, as I heard of £150+ bar bills being mentioned by a couple of guests the next morning. I’m very pleased that I suffered no hangover the next day although I was exhausted from rushing around after the bride in the morning and dancing practically all night.
Apparently the average cost of a wedding in the UK is £25,000. Twenty Five Thousand Pounds, it boggles my mind.
broke financially savvy my friends didn’t quite spend that much. Roughly 25% of the aforementioned figure as indeed did we on our wedding *puts on smug face* although you did get a bit more bang for your buck some eight years ago. Thinking about it we’ve only been to three weddings that I reckon cost upwards of £20,000.
Now there’s nothing wrong with spending however much you want on a wedding, a new car, a large house, a holiday but I wonder how many people spend money they don’t have on things they think they need – like exclusive use of a fancy house for all of one day.
Perhaps we should all be spending on the things that matter to us?
