YAY OR NAY: white weddings in the red

deep-debt.jpgIn the past year, the number of people borrowing to pay for their wedding has risen by a mammoth 43 per cent, giving the phrase ‘something borrowed’ a whole new meaning. It’s a figure that is even more surprising when you consider that this is the same year in which we’ve all been made painfully aware of the dangers of taking financial risks.

Around 13,600 people borrowed a total of £113 million to pay for frocks, booze and venues, but will you be doing the same when it comes to your big day? Remember, you can do the entire deed no-frills style for just over £100…

    My fiance and I both saved £100 a month for two years – his £2.5k paid for the honeymoon and my £2.5k paid for the entire wedding and reception.

    We felt that getting into debt for the wedding day was a rather depressing to start a marriage.
