How much a wedding costs for guests

Let’s jump straight in: £686. The latest research into the price of a wedding takes an outside view of budgets. You might be spending £10k on your wedding, but your 50 guests will be spending a whopping total of £34k between them.

    Me and my partner are going to his brother’s wedding in May, quick estimate is at least £700, hen/stag, suit hire/new dress, Two nights hotel, Travel, Gift.

    Another friends wedding in July though more likely be around £150, re-use the new dress, and travelling instead of staying to save on cost.

    Has made me think how i can cut the cost of expense for my close family/friends for my own wedding next year.

      Thanks for sharing that Kirsty, I’m actually surprised to hear they’re pretty much spot on with the figures – the response I’ve had on twitter backs you up as well: £700+ is the norm! Wow. It’s good to see that with more than one wedding the costs even out a little 🙂
      Let me know if you have any ideas about cutting the costs for your wedding guests – it doesn’t look easy from this! But I’d be interested to hear how you get on 🙂
