"we have been today to book wedding room, and book registrar, to book room is £365 to book the registrar is going to cost £450. The registrar informed us today that her fees are almost doubling, because the council have decide they are not charging enough"

"I remember being appalled by the quotes we received when trying to have our wedding last year (13/02/2010). To get around this we deliberately got married out of the normal wedding season and managed to get discounts because of it. It also helps to buy things from one source to make more of a saving. I used a company in the West Midlands called Excelsior Events for all the reception stuff e.g. Chair covers, vases, fancy lighting etc and saved a packet. "


"notice of marriage £33.50 each. Registry office ceremony £47.50. Marquee in the garden, 30 friends, who when asked what is on our wedding list, we said "nothing, just bring something for the BBQ / party. Alcohol supplied by brother, marquee blagged for free from a mate. Photography free by student photographer. Guest book was a gift when we got engaged. Total cost to us : £150.00 including the invites, decorations, etc. "


"remember the only necessary part is the the notice fee and registrars fee you can get married for just £100!!! "


"can do it for £4000"
