if theres only 1 alcohol drink included, the guests will more than likely end up buying their own, and the hotel will make loads on the bar... dont know bout wedding dress from asda thou!!

Yuck. Sounds awful! There's no way I'd have my reception there, no matter how cheap it was. Tacky!

I don't know, I imagine there are couples out there that genuinely could not afford a big wedding no matter how hard they saved and would prefer getting married now on a tight budget than wait around for years and years. These are ASDA wedding items: [img:2mkcumg3]http://www.bridalwave.tv/Asda%20wedding%20dress%20%C2%A360.jpg[/img:2mkcumg3] [img:2mkcumg3]http://www.weddingfreebies.co.uk/asda-george-wedding-dresses.jpg[/img:2mkcumg3] [img:2mkcumg3]http://greenroom.asda.com/assets/attachments/2178/player/wedding_tap.jpg[/img:2mkcumg3] [img:2mkcumg3]http://camilla.typepad.com/.a/6a00e54ecbc12e883301157044f11d970b-800wi[/img:2mkcumg3]

Those dresses and cakes look okay for the price actually. Just don't think it'd be for me. I think I'd rather spend a little bit more and have a really small wedding with a reception in a restaurant than one in a Premier Inn... Probably makes me sound like a snob, but am not into the huge weddings anyway.

I am sure given the choice anybody who can afford it would go for something a bit more individual and glossy, but I suppose in these times there are some couples who can't afford more! I know a couple of neighbours from when I lived in UK had their reception in their back garden with a BBQ and BYOB - that is all they could afford, but they had a blast anyway!

I actually think the BBQ sounds lovely. I just think I'd rather go much smaller-scale than have a bigger wedding in a location that isn't very nice or special (the PI hotels are quite soulless I think). The people you know would have been having their reception somewhere that meant something to them. To me, that's a lot more special than a Premier Inn wedding. Just my own opinion though. I totally understand what you mean about the times we're living in and that the cheap wedding will suit loads of people.

Ya know what, I think "why not"? There are so many people out there who want to get married and really the most important part of the day should be that you are marrying the person you love, not how much you spend on the day. I would never look down my nose at someone who went for this type of wedding. Why not? Yes it might not be the most unique or individual wedding in the world but so what. If it takes the pressure off for a few couple's out there then why not.
