5 Interesting Wedding Facts you Should Know

Your wedding day is one of the most important and special days of your life when you carry out the phrase ‘tying the knot’. Choosing to replace engagement wedding rings worn on the fourth finger of the left hand, with wedding rings is an extremely exciting time. 

When it comes to getting married, there are a lot of factors to consider including cost, wedding venue, location, time of year, decorations, wedding rings and so much more. These decisions will take a lot of time and research in order to make sure your special day is as perfect as can be. 

The information you desire isn’t always easy to find in one place, so we have collated a list of the most popular topics relating to wedding facts and questions to help you during your wedding planning. 

Facts about Weddings 

1. What is The Cheapest Wedding Season?

The cost of a wedding is usually the main concern, especially when it comes to planning within your budget. Whilst some people’s budgets may be more than others, it is still important to know which time of year is a prime time for wedding ceremonies. 

The ‘wedding season’ is from May to October, with the most expensive time being in either July or August, so if you are planning to budget, these are the months to avoid. Alternatively, the cheapest time to get married is the winter months of January or March. Whilst these months can be a lot colder, don’t let it put you off! You can still enjoy a perfect day at this time of year.

2. What is The Average Cost of a Wedding in the UK?

The average cost of a wedding in the UK can cost around £20,000. This figure is rising on a yearly basis, however, there are a lot of factors that can either increase or decrease this price based on your personal preference. The average cost estimate of a wedding is about half of this if you are looking to keep your wedding to a budget, sitting around £10,000, but can go down to an average of £5000 if it is kept more minimalistic. 

There are some wedding traditions that should be prioritised over others including a photographer, outfits, food and drink and stylists but these can come at different costs and can also be changed based on what you would like to include on your special day.

If you are looking to plan your wedding at the last minute, then many venues such as Milton Hill House offer last-minute wedding packages and dates that are easily adapted to the time, size and budget of your wedding.

3. How Much Does a Good Wedding Cost?

This is an extremely common question which doesn’t have a particular answer. Whilst you can refer to the costs mentioned above, a ‘good’ wedding in question will depend on what you want to prioritise, it does not need to be the largest wedding for you to enjoy it the most. 

Each couple is different, so the guest list, type of inexpensive or expensive wedding dress, entertainment and many other factors will alter the price of the celebration. You should focus on what is most important to you and your significant other, then budget around this for the rest of your day.

4. What Does a Flower Girl Wear?

Typically, the flower girl would wear a similar wedding dress to the bride. This would include a white dress of the same material, but the dress itself does not need to be the exact same. 

However, if this doesn’t suit you, it is also popular to match the flower girl with the bridesmaids with the colour and material of their dresses. You could even mix the two together, by having a certain coloured dress to match one, and have bows or other parts of the dress to match the other. However, it is ultimately your wedding and your choice!

5. How Do You Find The Best Wedding Venue?

Finding a wedding venue can be one of the hardest parts of planning a wedding. Whilst there are so many aspects of this celebration that you can ignore and you don’t have to include, a venue is not one of them. When picking out your venue, you will need to first consider what you would like to get out of your wedding day as if you have pictured holding this in a certain place or background, or with a specific colour scheme it can really cut options down for you. 

As well as this, you will need to consider the number of guests you would like to have at the wedding and the capacity of each venue. One of the biggest deciding factors for choosing a venue is the amenities included in the full price. You will need to make a list of what you would like it to include, or what you would like to do yourself and you can then decide which place is most suitable for you and your other half.
