After putting our wedding on hold we are back to planning again. Can someone give me a rough idea of how prices compare when you get wed in a church and then have your wedding meal and evening function in a nice hotel compared to having the ceremony and the evening all in one place.
There is one venue I love which would have a civil service and everything in the same place and I have priced up how much the service and meal/wine/evening buffet would cost for about 60 day and 80 night guests and it came to almost £7k which seems an awful lot to me.
For the same amount of people how much do hotels usually charge (roughly) for a reception and how much are churches?
£7k is an awful lot of money and I am sure if I looked at other venues I could find something cheaper but for me it has to have the wow factor and I haven't found it yet. Plus £620 of that is registrar fees!!
Any input appreciated.
