Flicking through a gallery on social media doesn’t compare to sitting shoulder to shoulder, flicking through the photos you’ve just picked up from Supasnaps, laughing at the memories you froze in time.

With the average cost of a wedding stacking up to £27,000 this year, there has never been a better time to make use of second-hand shopping on everything from the decorations to the dress.

So before you decide against chair covers or downgrade the table decorations, try shopping around an online marketplace to see whether the wedding you envisioned is available at a second-hand price.

Getting married at sea has never been as popular, with some cruise lines offering packages that start at just £1,010 in comparison with the average £30,000 cost of a UK wedding. Many cruises also offer a variety of services to help you plan a shipboard or shoreside ceremony, followed by a romantic cruise honeymoon. This enables couples to get married onboard or in a beautiful location without the immense hassle or expense of wedding planning.
