civil ceremony or church - seem the same price!
We got engaged just over 2 weeks ago and want a spring 2014 wedding - looking at very end of March/beginning of April.
We are trying to save where we can and have seen somewhere gorgeous where we could do the ceremony and reception. We decided to give a church ceremony a miss in order to keep costs down but when I look at civil ceremonies (that are not registry offices) it is pretty much the same cost!
The venue want £250 for the ceremony fee and then the council webiste says it is £4-500 for a registrar plaus £70 for giving notice.
So thats approx £800. And the church is at least £500. Is this right?! Everything I read says civil ceremonies are cheaper - does not seem like it!
