Budget Worries & Yorkshire Venue Help!
My H2B and myself have started to discuss budget and request prices for venue/catering etc. We have some saving plus family have said they would help, we think this may be £10,000 but if we can avoid it would not like to use it all so we can use some for a house deposit (£5000 of this money we have been told we could use on either wedding or house & wedding). We are then hoping to save as much as we can over the next two years.
We have two very different ideas for our big day which we both like and therefore will decide which dependent on budget these are a farm/barn type wedding or castle/stately home (very different i know!). Another issue for budget is i have a rather large family (and cutting out some of my 82 cousins) we are looking at 100 day guests poss. slightly more!
I originally thought the barn wedding would be cheaper but this is looking like this will be £11,000 with venue hire and reception/wedding breakfast but minus decorations/drinks package/evening food/entertainment! Compared to the Castle wedding which we are looking at which includes the hire, exclusive use, pre-ceremony & post rooms, evening food, extra evening guests, wedding ceremony, drinks package we are looking at £15,300 approx. which just seems better value as it is grander it may not need as much decorations!
Does anyone have any budget friendly tips or budget friendly venues in Yorkshire? I was hoping for a cost effective wedding but feel like i am looking at £20,000 + wedding spend with everything xx
