How much can I borrow for my wedding day?
Weddings are notoriously pricey: the dress, the rings, the venue and that’s just the basics! According to Brides Magazine, the average UK wedding can cost as much as £30k!
Choose Wisely compares loans of up to £25,000 with a variety of lenders offering loans to borrowers from bad to good credit. However, borrowing more than you can afford is not a good idea and be sure keep to a wedding budget to make sure you’re not overspending.

Wedding Loans Bad Credit - what are my options
There are loans available to you if you have bad credit but they are likely to be more expensive than those offered by the banks and supermarkets you’ll see on the high street.
A guarantor loan is likely to be the cheapest option. But obviously, you will need a guarantor to support your application. If this is not possible, visit our no guarantor loans comparison table to compare bad credit options that don’t require a guarantor.
Always remember, although planning your wedding can be a hugely exciting experience, you don’t need to spend thousands for the perfect day.
How to get married on a budget
You can find plenty of tips and tricks online on how to cut down the costs of your wedding and it’s important to remember the day will be special no matter what your budget is.
We’ve included a couple of tips below:
A winter or off-peak season wedding can really slash the costs of your big day. Although it might not be your dream, winter weddings can still look beautiful!
Limit the Guest List
Consider your guests carefully and if you need to, just keep it to close family and friends. Catering for loads of guests could really blow your budget.
Although there are some beautiful options out there for wedding invites and table decorations, the costs add up and you could spend a lot of money on one-use items! Think about using your own crafting skills to create personalised and unique decorations.
It can be frustrating having to limit your wedding budget but your big day will be special, even if you only spend £100! Don’t go overboard and keep the romance at the heart of the wedding. If you decide to take out a loan, make sure you afford to make back repayments and compare your options before you apply.
