Looking to keep costs low on your wedding day? Weddings are known to be expensive, but there are a few ways to make your day affordable whilst still being special.
One of which is the venue. Here are some of the best wedding venue options to keep your wedding costs down.
1. A Beach Wedding
Beach wedding venues are relatively easy to come by, especially if you live in the UK. You have a few options here. You can either find a wedding venue that offers licenced weddings on the beach next to their venue, or you could have a celebrant ceremony on the beach and do the legal bits at the registry office.
Either way, it’s usually a lot cheaper than hiring an entire wedding venue and you have a bit more freedom when it comes to space. Where you might have a capacity limit on an indoor venue, that isn’t the case at the beach, so you can truly choose your guest list size, big or small. Who knew affordable could be so romantic?
2. A Barn Wedding
If rustic charm and countryside views are a bit of you, you’ll probably love a barn wedding venue. These venues are usually a lot more affordable than other venue styles as they are typically more paired back with less mod cons and luxury elements.
This doesn’t, however, make barn venues any less special or romantic. Their wooden ceiling beams and easy access to the great outdoors make them the perfect place to marry all year round. And the photos always look so fantastic. It’s the perfect affordable wedding venue option!
3. A Pub Wedding
For something a bit more unusual, why not consider a pub wedding? Plenty of pubs are fully licenced for civil ceremonies, and you won’t have to worry about running out of food or booze!
Many pubs are located in period properties and listed buildings, so you can still get the charm and splendour of more expensive venues, just at a lower cost.
These venues are usually a lot cheaper as they are either not exclusive use, or weddings are earlier than pub customers visit, so they aren’t missing out on any income. Pubs are usually very accessible, so your guests will have no trouble find their way!
4. A Farm Wedding
Don’t worry, a farm wedding doesn’t mean getting married amongst the animals. A lot of farms are diversifying, and one way they are doing this is by renting out their fields for weddings, and they are typically more affordable. Think huge luxury marquees decorated exactly how you always imagined, glamping tipis so you and your guests can stay the night in comfort, and electricity easily accessible.
Not only will you have the memories of your wedding day and spending time with your loved ones, but you will have the coolest, unique photos to share! And don’t worry, glamping means you get proper beds and often a log burner, so you will be just a cosy as you would in a hotel!
