A wedding venue in the United Kingdom will have to spend more than £500,000 for a wedding, the latest figures from the National Lottery show.
The figures, from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), show that for a £250,000 wedding, there is a minimum spend of £500.
For a £500 wedding, you have to shell out £2,300.
But for a larger wedding, like a wedding with more than 10 guests, the minimum spend is only £1,000.
ONS chief economist Andy Haldane told the BBC that the figures were a snapshot of the UK’s wedding market, rather than the actual market.
“This is just one snapshot of our markets and we think we have a good sense of what people want,” he said.
However, Mr Haldanes said it would take some time for the ONS to be able to break down the numbers.
We are working with the ONSA on what they want to publish.
Mr Haldaney said the figures revealed that “weddington weddings are a significant and growing industry, with the number of weddings on offer increasing by more than one million every year”.
He added: “Wedding costs are often higher than they were a year ago, with people seeking out the most affordable option in the UK.
They are also becoming more complex, with guests changing from one style to another.”
Weddington is one of the fastest growing sectors of the wedding industry, and this shows that the industry is on the rise.
“The ONS said that a wedding was defined as a ceremony, reception, reception and dance at a wedding venue.
It also showed that weddings are more expensive in London, with a wedding costing £2.2 million in 2016 compared with £1.8 million in 2015.
In addition, the figures showed that the average wedding venue has been selling more weddings than it was selling during the same period last year.
A spokesperson for the UK Bureau of Statistics told the broadcaster that the ONSS’s figures were “the first we have seen to suggest that there is an upward trend in wedding costs in the country”.”
However, the ONSB has not been able to identify any evidence to support any other patterns of rising wedding costs over the past year, or to support an increase in prices in the last 12 months.””
We have also seen increases for the number, price and style of weddings in all the major urban areas, which is likely to indicate that there are more and better quality weddings in the capital than in many of the smaller and rural areas.”
