It's planning time! Getting the general vibe of your day down is one of the most fun and exciting parts of planning (mainly because there are no wedding nerves/stress yet, you haven't spent any money, and you have all the possibilities in front of you). So what can 10K really get you? You'd be surprised! Below we've got plenty of inspiration and ideas for weddings under 10K.

We're making budgeting look easy with these weddings under 10K...

The Secret Garden Wedding Venue

Christine & Paolo were engaged just 5 months before their wedding! The couple wanted it to be a true celebration of their love. Everything about this day was whimsical and romantic with a soft colour palette of sage green, white, and blush pink. The short planning time meant that many precious items were made with love by Christine & Paolo! Including all the buttonholes, bridesmaid bouquets and the bridal bouquet too! DIY can be essential for weddings under 10K to help stretch that budget a bit further!

LGBTQI+ Wedding With Bridal Jumpsuit With Cape

Chloe & Allison decided on a 5-day long wedding party! This meant the couple spent most of their budget on a venue, so the emphasis on other areas was more limited. Instead, the couple had their hair and makeup completed by friends and a lot of DIY decor too. Chloe's outfit was a handmade bridal jumpsuit and cape completed by her nan!

Elegant British Muslim Bride at Turkish Wedding

This elegant black-tie wedding day is off the charts! Ahsen & Burhan's largely English wedding still incorporated their Islamic beliefs and some aspects of a classic Turkish wedding too. Finding a wedding dress within the budget that could be transformed to meet Ahsen's modesty needs due to her religion was key. They managed to find a dress and had such an elegant day!

Sentimental Outfit at Small Intimate Wedding

Rose & Jack married in a small intimate wedding in Chelsea Town Hall. Rose looked sensational wearing the white suit that her beloved late mother wore to marry her father years earlier. Every single detail of their wedding day was handled by family or family connections. It's such a special and intimate day with plenty of personal touches. Weddings under 10K don't have to be restrictive, just decide what you're happy to splurge and save on. 

Seaside Elopement in Devon

Here's another special intimate wedding but instead of the city vibe, we're enjoying the beach! Rose & Chris found small businesses on Etsy, Instagram and even eBay to help DIY their wedding day. Rose & Chris always wanted an intimate family wedding incorporating their children. So when Covid struct it was the perfect opportunity to have a seaside elopement. Just the bride, groom, their two daughters and a lot of love.

Intimate Goldsborough Hall Wedding

Kate & Daniel scaled back their original summer wedding for an intimate winter wedding at Goldsborough Hall wedding venue in Yorkshire. The couple ensured that although the day was intimate it was plenty glamourous! Kate wanted an element of Hollywood glamour and chose a princess wedding dress and lots of gold detailing in their tablescape.

Core Clapton Wedding & Red Suit

Can you believe this stylish Core Clapton wedding was planned in just three weeks?! The former Edwardian parish hall is full of natural light and was the perfect blank canvas for all the terracotta decor and Filipino bamboo influences the couple wanted. Abi & JM looked pretty hot in a minimalist dress and red blazer. It's all just pure micro-wedding goals! This couple make planning weddings under 10K look easy!

Whirlwind Wedding at Woodstock

Laura & Kieron had an intimate ceremony followed by a cosy dinner at a local pub. They got to spend some quality time with their thirteen wedding guests. There's a bit of a theme going on here...Laura & Kieron also planned their wedding day in just a few days! Getting suppliers together at such short notice was a rush but the day turned out so special. Plus, we love that wedding cake!

Pink Satin Bridesmaids At Church Wedding

This small village church wedding under 10K with just the bridal party and immediate family alongside the bride and groom was intensely intimate and romantic. Hannah had originally always wanted a big wedding and even though Hannah & Stephen had to cut 160 people from the guest list, it was gorgeous! Complete with pretty pink details including those pink satin bridesmaid dresses. Their reception consisted of sailing down the river and stopping for a picnic with some impromptu speeches.

Wedding with Church Ceremony and Colourful Marquee Reception

Claire & Ray were inspired by the thought of a more intimate wedding with close family and friends. They had a traditional church wedding ceremony and a marquee wedding reception with some of the most beautiful flowers. An epic bright red and orange flower cloud and columns really make this marquee look next level!
