What sort of budget will I need for my wedding?

Your wedding budget will depend on various factors:

  • The time of year: the most popular time of year for weddings is between May and September. Before or after this time, prices will be lower.
  • The day of the week is also important: everybody wants to get married on a Saturday but have you considered Friday instead? Fridays are also possible, especially during school holidays, and that will reduce the bill for your wedding.
  • The start time: whether your wedding begins at midday or 4pm will have an impact on catering costs.
  • The number of guests and what they are invited to (drinks, lunch, evening guests). As a rough guide, you should budget between €70 and €130 per guest.
  • Depending on your budget, ask us for some advice and we can put together a package to suit you. Our quotes include a breakdown of the costs. Staff costs are included and there are no hourly supplements, so no nasty surprises after the event.
