In a recent Travelodge survey it has been revealed that wedding guests costs could be £800 in 2016. 2,000 respondents’ views tell us that the cost of attending one wedding is setting us back approximately £407.83 per person.
45% of Britons will be attending two weddings this year racking up the costs to £815.64 per guest! Wedding gifts, a new outfits (most spend around £70), beauty treatments, accommodation, travel and reception drinks all contribute, and this is before we’ve added on the hen & stag parties! No wonder 25% are declining wedding invitations because they simply can’t afford to attend.
The biggest spenders are Londoners who are forking out £487 per wedding, whilst Aberdeen guests spend the least at a mere £123.92. Think we need to learn some lessons here.
