Dry hiring your venue: keeping the costs down

An alternative option for your wedding venue that will help you keep your costs down

An alternative option for your wedding venue that will help you keep your costs down

One of the ways to keep costs down when it comes to wedding planning but ensure a truly spectacular and personal event is gaining in popularity.

“Dry hire” is where you book a room or venue and do everything else yourself.

It can be a historic building, a pub, a town hall or just a piece of land on which to erect a marquee.

But after that, everything is your own responsibility – catering, bar, transport, service, music and entertainment.

Many venues still only offer a full package for the big day.

But as couples increasingly insist on value for money as one of their main priorities an increasing number are willing to offer just a location.

Costs typically range from £1,500 up to around £3,000 but this can be dependant on other requirements.

For instance some venues may supply lighting, storage space or furniture.

Gardens and museums are among the venues which are taking this option up and allowing top locations at a fraction of the price they would command for a complete package.
