How to Find a Cheap Wedding Venue?
Couples wondering how to get a cheap wedding venue will be pleasantly surprised by the expert advice we've gathered.
"It's easier than you might think to find a cheap wedding venue," says Zoe Burke, leading wedding expert and Editor of Hitched.
"My top tip for couples looking for a cheaper wedding venue would be to be flexible about when you get married. If you have your heart set on a summer Saturday - aka peak wedding season - you're going to be paying a premium as those dates are more in demand. However, if you're willing to consider a winter Friday when there's less competition for the dates, you'll find more affordable deals.
"I'd also say if you have your heart set on a particular wedding venue but it looks like it's out of your price range, it can't hurt to get in touch and ask if there's anything they can do for your budget. They might not be able to, but lots of venues do build bespoke packages so you can see if there's an option to create something that suits your needs.
"Finally, if you're willing to plan a wedding with short notice, ask the venues you love to let you know if they have any cancellations. It's not very common, but when it does happen, you can often get a great deal. My cousin actually planned her wedding in six weeks to fit in with a cancellation at a wedding she loved - it cost her a fraction of the price, and was a lovely wedding!"
How Much is a Cheap Wedding Venue?
"This is really quite subjective," explains Zoe. "Cheap is going to be relative to your wedding budget, after all, but for me, a cheap wedding venue is often one that has a great deal or special offer available.
"With wedding venue deals, you're often able to get a beautiful wedding venue for less than you normally would - but you'll take a winter or mid-week date, for example.
"There are plenty of affordable wedding packages and deals out there, and with the average couple spending £8,400 on their wedding venue alone, you're looking for something below that price really, to constitute a cheap wedding venue.
"But with that being said, if your dream wedding venue normally charges £20,000 and they have a deal for £15,000 - that could be constituted as cheap too! Decide your wedding budget first, and that will help you to determine what a cheap wedding venue is to you."
How to Decorate a Cheap Wedding Venue?
"Decorating a cheap wedding venue is going to depend on the style of the venue - and why it's being classed as cheap," says Zoe. "If it's cheap because it's a dry-hire wedding venue and you're decorating it all yourself, then it's going to depend on your wedding theme.
"Personally, I don't think you can ever go wrong with loads of fairy lights - they elevate every setting! For more affordable wedding décor ideas think about lots of greenery and plants (as opposed to flowers). It looks really stylish, and is more affordable than buying fresh flowers."
How Much of Your Wedding Budget Should You Allocate to Your Venue?
Many may think that the age-old question is how to get a wedding venue for cheap, and don't get us wrong, it's frequently asked (hopefully we've answered that for you here), but another question often asked is how much of your wedding budget should you put towards your venue?
"The average couple spends £8,400 on their wedding venue," reveals Zoe. "Which is just over 45% of the average wedding cost of £18,400.
"This doesn't mean this is how much you need to spend, but it's important to consider that your wedding venue is going to take up a significant amount of your wedding budget!
"Paying for your venue will very often include lots of things like your ceremony room hire, use of linens, specific chairs or chair decorations, your crockery and quite often your catering too, as it tends to be included in lots of wedding packages. This will often include a three course meal, and some wine for the tables.
"Check whether things like canapes and evening food are included, or if they are extra, and also query things you don't think will be necessary to see if there's scope to change the deal. For example, if some décor is included but you don't need it, ask if that spend could be used elsewhere or removed - the worst they can say is no!"
