Although London takes the top spot, with over a quarter (26 per cent) of people living in the capital spending over £20,000 on their big day, Sheffield doesn’t hold back when it comes to splashing out money on nuptials.
Research finds that 9.78 per cent of couples in Sheffield spend over £20,000 on their weddings, ranking number ten in the top 10 list.
Fellow Yorkshire city Leeds also made the list, coming at number 6, with 11.4 per cent of couples spending £20,000 or more.
Tradition lives on
The research found that the traditional concept of the father of the bride paying or helping to pay for the wedding remains strong, with over half of brides polled saying their dad helped with wedding costs. This was compared to a third of grooms’ dads (36 per cent).
Over a third (34 per cent) of married or previously married couples admitted that they had “no idea” how they would pay for their wedding when they got engaged.
Although a fifth of Brits were able to fund a large amount of their nuptials themselves, 44 per cent paid for half, or less, of their own weddings.
