As Married At First Sight comes to an end, here's five tips to cut the cost of your wedding | The Sun

LOVE is the in air, possibly, as E4’s Married At First Sight comes to an end tonight.

But will the couples be staying wed, or saying “I don’t”?

If you are planning to say “I do” any time soon, now’s the time to save on wedding costs with these steps.

WINTER WINNER: Winter weddings tend to be cheaper, with also better venue availability.

If you’re brave, booking a last-minute deal is a way to save even more money on your big day.

For example, there are January offers for £2,000 less than the usual price at the Brinsop 14th-century manor house in Hereford.

PRE-LOVE AFFAIR: After a summer of weddings, couples are now selling off decorations from their ceremonies.
