For most people, tying the not with your loved one is one the happiest and most cherished moments you could ever experience in your life.
Well, maybe until they see how much a wedding and everything that comes with it costs!
On average, it cost £27,000 for a wedding in the UK in 2017 (that’s includes the full bells and whistles) and this figure is expected to rise to over £32,000 by 2028.
These figures include everything from venue costs, food, transport, decorations, engagement rings and, of course, the honeymoon.
It’s hardly a surprise that over 50% of couples asked for money as their wedding present – sensible move!
We decided to put together an infographic based around wedding trends, statistics, facts and figures. Take a look at our findings…
