BRITS ARE HAVING MORE DIY WEDDINGS (AND DESIGNER DRESSES) THAN EVER!

BRITS ARE HAVING MORE DIY WEDDINGS (AND DESIGNER DRESSES) THAN EVER!It’s been widely said that Brits are finally feeling the benefit of a bit more cash in their pockets and new research from
VoucherCodes.co.uk
reveals it’s having a knock-on effect on the nation’s weddings this year.

The trend for designer weddings is on the up, with a whopping half (49%) of Brits set to marry this year that plan to blow the budget – over double the 19% who planned a costly ‘do’ in 2014.

Even those couples not planning a lavish wedding this year are upping the ante, with Brits shelling out anaverage of £16,364 on swish venues, outfits and accessories. A 28% rise on the average outlay in 2014 and a substantial 36% increase on the average cost of £11,947 five years ago.






The dress

The desire for a lavish wedding has also seen a hike in spending on big ticket items, with a third of brides (33%) planning to splurge on a designer gown to walk down the aisle in, and the average bride forking out 40% more (£357) for their wedding dresses than in 2014.

The reception

A welcome boon for the retail and leisure industries, this year’s newlyweds will be partying with an average of £1,449 on food and drink, and £1,072 on entertainment for the reception, while slicing a massive £660 out of their accounts for the wedding cake alone – nearly double the £346 spent on wedding cake in 2010.
