Summer is the most popular and most expensive time of the year to get married. Because hotels and other wedding reception venues wish to profit from the busy wedding season, be prepared to pay a higher price during the summer rush. The more guest you invite to your wedding, the more money you’ll spend. You should calculate your food budget based on a per-head cost for food and drink. The type of meal you plan to serve your guest is limited by your budget. For example, a seated dinner served is more expensive than a buffet. Some locations are more expensive than others, Dublin being the most expensive city in Ireland to get married in. Don’t panic if your wedding budget doesn’t cover everything that you’d like to have on your wedding day. It may require compromises, scheduling changes, or simply begging for more money, but even with a limited budget you can have your ideal wedding.
