Brides and grooms who are stressing about the mounting costs of their wedding will be able to breathe a sigh of relief, as they may be about to receive a huge chunk of money from their friends and family
As most guests these days ditch the wedding list and give money to the loved-up couple instead, it is thought newlyweds typically amass around £7,000 when they tie the knot, according to a recent survey by Admiral Home Insurance.
Yahoo! Style reported that as guests tend to spend between £70 and £85 each, and weddings have an average of 82 attendees, married couples can expect to earn around £6,991 on their Big Day.
This is due to the wedding gift list trend dying out over the years, and many couples now asking for cash from their loved ones instead. During the nineties, gift lists were all the rage; however, a fifth of Brits who have got married in the last ten years have requested money instead. Many brides and grooms also ask for donations for their honeymoon or anything else they are saving for.
Couples inviting guests from Northern Ireland will be pleased to hear they are the most generous when it comes to wedding gifts, typically spending £154 on the newlyweds. However, those in the East Midlands slip just £57 into their wedding card.
However, it is not surprising as The AA recently revealed 30 per cent of millennials really worry about steep costs when they are invited to a wedding, with 14 per cent even having to take money from their savings to afford it.
