    I just wondered if there are - it would be interesting to get some ideas and see what their plans are.

    Yeah.
    June next year. Got the venue and registrar booked. May have found the dress. I think this year is going to fly by. Hopefully. I can't wait to get married.

    Hello

    Where are you getting married?

    I visited two venues in Cheshire yesterday, but there were lots of hidden costs and neither of them really had the wow factor.

    We're off up to Scotland on 19th June, to check some out there.

    We're getting married in a hotel ten minutes up the road from us in Suffolk.
    The manager at the hotel is brilliant and laid out all the costs at our first meeting.
    Good luck with your venue hunt.

    Thank you, it's proving to be much more difficult than I thought it would be.

    London, June 2018. Nothing booked yet, only recently engaged. I'm trying to avoid outsourcing my wedding costs to guests by having cash bar or having it in a difficult location. I recently got back from a wedding in Wales where I spent £400 getting there, staying there, gift, coming home, booze etc.
    Mortgage, as of 30 March - £309,991. Original MF - 2041

    Kent, August 2018!

    Booked the venue, photographer, florist, cake maker, registrar, rings bought etc!

    It's all super exciting. As we're having everything in one place, and the venue provide wedding breakfast + DJ + evening BBQ buffet etc, there isn't too much left for us to do except keep saving and buy the wedding dress / groomsman suit.

    TBF we did book ours in 2015.
    Capital One:£1,259.40/£1,300.00
    Aqua: £273.29/£300.00
    o2: £221.00 / £271.00

    Thanks for replies!

    I've finally found a venue! I visited it last Sunday and then went up to Scotland to view some there. (I'm from Ayrshire.) I did love a couple but it would have meant arranging transport to take the guests there (we're in West Yorkshire).

    So came back home, we both still loved the one that we seen last Sunday in Cheshire, so have booked that and checked with registrar to see if they're available. So, it's all booked for 30th June 2018!!

    Just need to find florist, entertainer, make-up artist, buy rings. I used to make wedding stationery for other people, so may as well make my own too!!

    If anyone has any recommendations for the above in Chester, it would be gratefully appreciated! Xxx

    May 2018, in Spain, and we just booked our venue last week! To anyone considering a wedding abroad – I strongly recommend choosing your location first, even just the country (anywhere you have a personal connection to? do you want the ceremony to be legal/religious, because this affects where you can go?), then spend some time on online research, and find a wedding planner on the ground. Our planner is surprisingly affordable, showed us around venues, recommended a caterer and will source florists, DJ, hair and make-up, etc.
