Date of wedding can be key to savings, says expert

Planning a wedding away from the peak months usually desirable for couple's big day can result in a significant saving, according to one expert.Editor of You and Your Wedding, Colette Harris, says that holding a wedding outside of the busy summer months can pay off, as can arranging a mid-week wedding.Other ideas that can cut costs include sending email invitations, offering wedding cake as dessert and holding an evening buffet among guests rather than the staging of multiple meals throughout the day.Ms Harris detailed the advantages of having an off-peak wedding: "The costs for all your suppliers are usually dramatically reduced. "A wedding on a Friday in April will usually cost you probably at least 30 to 40 per cent less than it would to have that wedding on a Saturday in June."According to the Office of National Statistics, there were 275,140 weddings in the UK in 2006.
