Liverpool Wedding

We are trying to get married on a budget. Looking to spend 1k-1.5k

We are going to get married in a registry office and then we have two options

1. Book a reception in hotel for example with a package price for meal, dj etc


2. Book a table in a restaurant for a meal and then book a room somewhere and buffet dj etc

What would people recommend as the better option money wise?

    You might just have to get a few quotes and price both options up accordingly. Sometimes going for a package can be cheaper than having to source everything yourself (as OH's sister is finding out to her dismay).

  • How many people are you looking at as that will affect how far your money goes.

    I think you'd find it tight for option one on that budget, having had a bit of a look in the northwest prior to booking our reception

    I got married in the registry office in St Georges Hall which is a lovely building and cheap.

    My friend did their engagement party at the Shipping Forecast which was pretty great if you like that kind of thing.

    When are you thinking of getting married?
