Couple avoid debt with £1,000 wedding

A young couple from Chorley had a white wedding with 100 guests for just £1,000 as they did not want to start married life saddled with debt.


They got married in a local church with bride Karolina wearing a £30 charity shop find and groom Ben wearing a £75 tailor made suit bought online.


Ben said: “We both wanted a wedding which reflected the times and was affordable without losing any of the magic. With a bit of ingenuity we were able to keep the cost down and have a truly special day.”


The  couple decorated the church themselves and relied on friends and family to help out with the catering. A 5 course meal was served to 25 guests at Ben’s parent’s house, while Karolina’s mother baked the wedding cake.


100 guests arrived for the evening celebrations, where champagne bought at the supermarket during buy one get one free offers was served. A total of £250 was spent on the drinks, making it the most expensive aspect of the wedding.


The couple spent their wedding night together at home and plan a bargain weekend getaway later on in the summer when prices are lower.


“Everything was perfect and I wouldn’t have changed a thing,” said debt-free bride Karolina.
