Couple plan cut-price 'credit crunch wedding'

A credit crunch-hit Devon couple have not let the financial crisis derail their wedding plans.Instead, Christopher May and Odette Fenwick will go ahead with the ceremony next weekend on a budget of just £500, the Daily Mail reports.The tight-fisted twosome are spending just £40 on the buffet, while 19-year-old Odette's wedding dress is setting her back just £52.A bargain bucket £43.50 civil ceremony in the couple's home town of Ilfracombe is also on the cards."It's surprising how cheap things are when you look around. The budget kept threatening to creep up, but I wouldn't let it. Most of the things are from eBay. I don't know where we'd be without it," Odette said."Our credit crunch wedding is going to be the best day of our lives - without breaking the bank."According to recent research from You and Your Wedding, the average nuptials costs around £20,000 in the UK.
