What to look for in cheap wedding venues in the UK

When you start looking for a wedding venue you will be amazed at the variety of venues and the vast differences in cost.

Package deals

Overview
Weddings venues vary from a hall for hire where you can provide your own catering to a stately home or reception venue in a hotel.
Book a package
Like a package holiday, it can be more cost effective to book wedding deals though the venue itself.
Many wedding halls will come with ready made weddings packages, if that is what you want.
Often, this will include catering for up to 60 people, a DJ for the evening, an evening buffet for up to 80 and often a wedding cake too.
UK wedding venues also often offer special deals for week day weddings which can curt the cost dramatically. Be flexible about your dates and time
Cheap wedding venues do not need to be poor quality wedding venues if you are prepared to be flexible on dates or book at the last minute. Ask for more
Don't be afraid to ask for discounts or extras with your wedding package

Choose wisely

Expand the search
When you search for your venue, do not limit yourself to the immediate location. There may be better deals available if you are prepared to travel a little further.
If you live in London, this is particularly true. Cut down on numbers
Intimate wedding venues will allow you to save money by keeping the numbers lower and hotel venues often have cheaper options for catering which can save you money.
Avoid very busy hotels, such as hotels at Heathrow or Gatwick which rely less on wedding trade so are less likely to offer you a discount. Be different
Choose a hog roast or a picnic buffet to cut costs at an informal wedding.
A venue search will help you find barns or halls with gardens or fields.
As long as you have some protection from the elements, you can hold your wedding reception in any place you like. Final word
Just remember to factor in costs for extras like mobile toilets and lighting if you go for a really rural location.
