We are holding a Wedding Showcase on Sunday 30th October 2-5pm

As our Wedding showcase approaches we thought you would enjoy the statistics below, the showcase is on Sunday 30th October 2-5pm with free admission and parking.
Wedding Survey Infographic

Getting Engaged

Wedding survey results
If you have been in a relationship for around four years and your anniversary is looming then statistically you are at your most likely point of getting engaged. The average length of relationship being four years, however 2% of couples knew exactly what they wanted and were engaged in under six months and a committed 6% became engaged after more than ten years together.

The Proposal

Engagement occasion
Two proposal occasions really stood out – 32% of proposers were old romantics and choose to ask ‘Will you marry me?” on their anniversary, closely followed by 25% of proposers choosing to ask that all important question over the festive season. New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day and holidays were also popular occasions.

The Budget

Couples footing the bill
The average cost of a wedding now totals £25,090 – with the largest cost being venue hire, followed by the honeymoon and the food.
When it comes to paying for the big day – 48% of couples are paying some of the bill with help from both sides of the family and 36% will be paying for the entire wedding themselves. Just 5% of couples are following the old tradition that the bride’s family pay for the wedding day.

The Planning

Sharing the wedding planning
Despite the average engagement being 19 months, the planning of the wedding averaged at 12 months – we love that couples are getting engaged and the spending seven months in engaged bliss before the real planning commences.
We also love to see that almost half of couples are sharing the wedding planning – 48% of couples are planning their big day together, while a further 48% of weddings were planned predominantly by the bride – with the rest of couples leaving the lion’s share of planning to a wedding planner.

The Big Day

On the big day the average bride is 33 years old and the average groom 34 years and seven out of ten brides will change their name to their husband’s name after marriage.
The average number of guests is 75 guests to the day and 101 guests to the evening celebrations.
The average number of bridesmaids was three (a trend seen in 23% of weddings), although 20% of couples plan to have more than five bridesmaids. UK couples appear to love symmetry in their bridal party as the majority (21%) also plan on having three groomsmen.
Are you social media savvy? Or do you want your wedding to be a private affair? Just 2% of couples planned on having an unplugged wedding (a wedding day with a social media ban). 44% didn’t set anything up specifically but were happy for their guests to snap and share their day. While 18% of couples set up their own wedding hashtag for guests to use. A whopping 62% of couples also updated their Facebook status to “Married” within 24 hours of saying ‘I do’.

The Gift List

Gift list survey
If you are feeling awkward about asking for gifts for your wedding then you needn’t – just 2% of couples asked their guests to not give gifts at the wedding. 48% of couples asked for cash gifts and 19% had a traditional gift list – while 5% requested donations to their favourite charity.

The Honeymoon

Going on honeymoon
Whether it’s the holiday of a lifetime or a mini-break where you can switch off for a few days – 89% of couples planned some kind of break after the big day. 73% are going on a honeymoon and 32% planned a mini-moon – meaning some extravagant couples were enjoying a mini-moon after the wedding and a larger honeymoon later in the year.
60% of couples plan to mini-moon in the UK, while 35% head our further for a Europe mini-moon. When it comes to the honeymoon, couples are looking to splurge with 69% of couples venturing outside of Europe for their trip.
