I recently read an article about a couple who managed to plan their wedding for under £150. I can see your jaws hitting the floor. It’s true, in today’s wedding world that is an astronomically low price to pay for your big day.
This particular couple were married in a registry office in a small ceremony with close friends and family. It sounds great, surrounded by those close to you. But would you want this kind of low key day?
As much as I can totally see the financial benefits, I feel like the big day is something you hopefully only do once. I believe you regret the things you didn’t do in life far more than what you did.
Nobody wants to look back regretting they didn’t push the boat out. That said, that’s no disrespect to registry offices, there are some truly stunning registry offices and in some ways they truly are the unsung hero of the wedding world. Depending on your local registry office, they tend to have beautiful rooms, enough room for your guests but more of a subtle no frills approach.
I just got back from a lush big white wedding in Ireland and It confirmed to me that ‘if you’re going to do it- do it properly’. The big celebration just seems like so much fun and although smaller intimate weddings can be equally as lovely, I think I’d like to stick to a big white wedding, or something a bit similar to the photo above, how cool does this wedding look?!
What would YOU do?
