Couples spending nearly £4,500 less on weddings

The average British couple will spend £16,569 on their own wedding, according to research by Clydesdale Bank and Yorkshire Bank*.  This is £4,331 less than last year’s average.

Couples are finding innovative ways of cutting costs with 30% saying they would trim their wedding guest list and not invite aunts and uncles.  10% would ask their groom and groomsmen to wear their own suits, while 8% of brides even said they would be prepared to buy their dress on eBay.
