    Okay, I’ll fess up – 2009, 60 guests, 2 days in a castle including all accommodation, meals and entertainment = £23k

    Paid for by me, but £7k of that was for the Honeymoon 🙂

    …Length of the marriage is in inverse ratio to the expense…

    I’ve noticed that with all my friends marriages.

    Weren’t you on here moaning about being skint a little while ago? 😛

    All marriages from weddings I’ve attended, bar one are still going strong. That one didn’t cost that much. I’d estimate maybe £4-5k at the very most.

    This is an expensive wedding!

    Ok, so $10m is nothing for a billionaire but I can never understand how less well off, yet normally rational people, feel that an expensive wedding makes more sense than paying off a big chunk of a mortgage.

    Me and the OH have discussed this subject a few times, it would use up all my savings so we came to a solution, registry office just a couple of witnesses, then a 2 week holiday, and just tell people when we get back.

    Tbh neither of us are very social, other stuff gets in the way. Plan was to book a restuarant for an evening invite close friends and relatives 20 max for a meal to celebrate, cheapstake i know but we have been together for 15 years so no real surprises for anyone.

    Our wedding cost £65 – registry office and off to the pub for lunch – all concerned were happy! ( bit of an awkward moment when the registrar asked my wife to be’s birth date and I forgot [nerves!] we have only been together 25years!)
