“Guests can expect to pay Â£391 to attend a wedding in 2019, up almost a third from last year, according to American Express. Hotels, clothes, gifts and travel can soon add up when sharing someoneâ€™s special day. Here are some ways to reduce the cost.
Buy your outfit in the summer sales. If you sign up to Top Cashback, a money-saving website, you can also claim Â£15 back from websites such as Reiss, Monsoon, Asos and Next. For suit hire, Formally Yours is one of the cheapest options â€” Â£53 covers a jacket, trousers, shirt, waistcoat, and a cravat or tie. You can rent a designer dress from the website Girl Meets Dress. Returns are pre-paid and you are refunded for unworn items; a dress by Stella McCarttney worth Â£600 costs Â£49 to rent.
If you have a penchant for photography , flower arranging r baking, consider offering your time as a wedding present rather than splurging on a gift.
Websites such as Not On the High Street , EtsyÂ and Groupon are good for personalisedÂ gifts. On the high street H&M Home has a premium linen dressing gown, from Â£34.99, which can be personalised for Â£2.99.
Look for bonuses when you shopping for gifts. For example, John Lewis has Bosch Vitaboots blender is Â£299.99 that comes with a hamper worth Â£70”.
