My fiancée and I are looking at getting married this Autumn (2019). We have looked at quite a few venues here in Ireland, both 4 and 5 star and then 2 very unique venues also. They’re all working out at between €80-€100 per head.
But to be honest we’re not too keen on getting married in Ireland. If we get married here our guest list would be around 250 which is more than either of us want and also the typical Irish wedding doesn’t appeal to either of us.
We’ve looked online and received some quotes and a wedding in Spain or Italy is working out at around €180+ a head but this includes venue hire, dj and free bar for 3-4 hours.
What I’m wondering is can it be done for cheaper? We’d be looking at around 80 people and we’re hoping to keep the entire thing (venue, food, entertainment, bar, dress etc) under €15k if possible. Are we dreaming?
Thanks in advance for any input and sorry for the long post.
