UK Wedding Licence laws to change

A huge overhaul of some seriously outdated wedding licence laws could make it cheaper for you to get married!

Chancellor Philip Hammond announced in his 2019 budget that marriage laws that have been unchanged since 1086 are due a shake-up, meaning the choice of venues you can legally get married in could be expanding rapidly.

These changes will allow more pubs, restaurants and open-air venues to host weddings. This could mean serious savings for budget-conscious brides, as cheaper venues would be allowed to host their weddings.

Under new laws, the process of applying for a wedding license will be a lot easier. Currently, venues have to have a specific room available for ceremonies, and no alcohol can be sold or consumed one hour before the wedding begins – which has deterred venues like bars and pubs to apply for a license to host weddings. Current laws also prohibit temporary structures, like outdoor marquees to host weddings legally too.

This has meant that couples looking for an outdoor wedding, or a wedding in an unlicensed venue would then have to get legally married on a separate occasion – bringing the cost of their dream wedding up.

With the average wedding costing around £32,273, this is sure to be welcome news to those looking to save costs at their wedding! Take a look at our wedding budgeting tips to help you get started.

Planning Destination Wedding

Planning your destination wedding  can be a daunting task. From considering location to finding vendors, there’s a lot to consider. Here’s our top things to consider when planning a destination wedding

.

  1. Notify your guests in advance

It’s important to give your guests a lot of advance warning if you’re thinking of having a destination wedding. Give them plenty of time, not just to save up the costs of travel, but also to book time off work. Don’t be discouraged if not all your nearest and dearest can make it, as sometimes guests can’t afford the costs.

 

  1. Embrace the local setting

With travel and accommodation taking up a big chunk of your destination wedding budget, you’ll want to make savings wherever you can.  Embrace the local setting and use local flowers, and food to cut costs.

 

  1. Check hotel availability

The last thing you want is for your guests to book their flights, and then find out the nearest hotel is miles away. Choose a location with enough accommodation in the area for your guests, and make sure they’re all reasonably affordable

 

  1. Hire a wedding planner

Logistically, planning an overseas wedding can be a nightmare. Save yourselves the hours on the phone with vendors and hire a local wedding planner.

4 Tips to choose your honeymoon destination

Choose your honeymoon destination with our helpful list

Once you’ve got your wedding planning sorted, your mind will inevitably travel to your honeymoon destination. There are so many places to choose from when planning your honeymoon, from white sand beaches to bustling cities. It can be overwhelming to choose a destination, so here’s our four to choose your honeymoon destination and help you in narrowing down that wish list to create the honeymoon of your dreams.

  1. Narrow the list down to two

Sit down with your partner and list each of your favourite destination sites. Pick one from each of your lists to research further. It’s so much easier to compare destinations if you have just two or three to choose from, rather than a long list. This will help you choose your honeymoon destination.

  1. Set your budget

Don’t set yourself up for heartache by falling in love with a destination that’s out of your budget. Remember it’s your honeymoon so it’s always better to over budget and have funds left over for the little extras, than spending too much and having to be frugal on your honeymoon. Be realistic about your budget when you sit down to choose your honeymoon destination and only look at places you know you can afford.

  1. Weather

Think about the weather for the time of year you’re going away, and have a look at local forecasts to predict the trends. You don’t want to get stuck in  the rainy season when you’ve dreamed of a sunny beach getaway!

  1. Think about holiday allowances

If you’re thinking about a long haul holiday or a road trip, make sure you can get the time away from work to enjoy your honeymoon, instead of trying to pack everything into a short space of time.

Before you get your heart set on a destination, and especially before you book, talk to your workplace about how much time you’re going to need away from your desk.

Unique ways to display your wedding photos

Your wedding day is going to be one of the most memorable days of your life – and the photos from your wedding allow you to look back on that special moment and relive the memories. A wedding is one of the occasions where everyone will be snapping away and taking photographs, and it’s a shame to not display all those happy memories in your home. It’s so easy to let those photos get lost in the digital world, and only keep them on our phones or on social media. There’s a ton of ways you can display wedding photos in your home, that are a little more unique than the standard framed print. Here’ sour top ways to display your wedding photos in your home

Mason Jar Photos

A different way to display wedding photos is by using mason jars. They’re a simple and easy way to create beautiful decorations using your wedding photos. Simply use photo prints and put them inside mason jars, and decorate with led lights and florals. You can order photo prints straight from the Scripin Weddings app.

Photo Shapes

Create an eye-catching photo display using photo prints or polaroid images. You can arrange your photos into different shapes and patterns, such as hearts, stars, squares and circles. This a great solution to display a number of photos in an interesting way.

Photos on rope

For a DIY feel, make your own photo lines by hanging rope and attaching your photo prints to them. You can make this more interesting by attaching fairy lights, and also keepsakes from your wedding such as your invitations or order of ceremonies.

Photobooks

For a conversation starter, a photo book is a great way to display wedding photos. You can create your own photo book from your favourite images in the Scripin Weddings app, to tell a story of the moments on your wedding day.

Gallery Wall

Want a statement to display wedding photos in your home? Gallery walls are increasingly popular, and they’re a great way to take traditional framed images and make them modern. You can create a large gallery of images or just choose a small area of your home to display your photos.

Remember, you can order a full range of printed products from the Scripin Weddings App – Find out more today!
