Financing your dream wedding day isn’t always easy. In fact, the cost of the average wedding day in the UK is at an all-time high. Adding up everything from wedding stationery to the wedding dress, the figure currently stands at £27,161. Fortunately, the support you need to responsibly finance your wedding day just become a lot more accessible.
As the proud owner of some of the finest wedding venues in the south of England, we aim to make dream weddings more affordable to the couples who fall in love with our country estates. Our wedding loans have become a popular option for those looking to spread the cost of their big day. In this blog post, we offer an essential introduction to our wedding loan options as well as a few more things to consider to make your wedding day more affordable.
Marry sooner rather than later
There’s so many great last minute venue hire deals available across our collection of wedding venues. Our interest-free wedding loan package is available to those looking to marry within the next six months, which makes moving the date of your wedding a great option. Whilst you’ll have less time to plan your day, you’ll have all the support you require from our team to turn your wedding dreams into a reality.
The interest-free wedding loans available to those marrying within the next six months can be spread over a period of 12 months, meaning affordable and easy to manage monthly payments. Our flexible deposit scheme also means you can have your dream wedding with an upfront payment of as little as 10%. Our interest-free wedding loan can be used to finance all venue items, including hire, catering and accommodation, meaning you can free up the cash you’ve already saved to spend elsewhere (or even on a much needed honeymoon!).
Consider a weekday wedding
There are many benefits associated with marrying at the weekend, but an increasing number of rewards are being reaped by couples opting for weekday dates. The most obvious advantage is that weekday weddings are generally available at a lower price point than weekend weddings, with couples saving on average £1,679 by avoiding a Saturday wedding according to Bridebook:
“Almost half of UK couples are getting married on a day of the week other than Saturday. Friday is the next most popular weekday (17% weddings) followed by Sunday (11%) and Thursday (7%). You’re sure to save on almost every wedding supplier by choosing to hold your big day on any day other than a Saturday as suppliers are usually happy to provide reduced rates on days they wouldn’t normally be booked. Plus there’s the bonus that if you get married on a Friday you and your guests have 2 days to recuperate before work on Monday morning!”
Plan ahead with low interest rates
Our wedding loans aren’t just available to those looking to marry in the next six months. Those who need a little more time to plan can enjoy low interest rates and the benefits of our flexible wedding loan packages too. With up to £25,000 available with interest rates as low as 9.9% spread across a period of up to six years, you can finance your entire day without putting a burden on your long term finances.
