A Baya Wedding Budget

You've set the date and now your thinking about your wedding budget. Just how much is your big day going to cost you?!

Weddings in the UK typically cost anything between a few thousand pounds to tens of thousands. According to a recent survey, the average cost of a UK wedding is now £27,000.

The highest ticket items are generally the reception venue and catering. These two combined can make up 50% of your spend. That being the case, it makes sense to start with venue research to see what your options are and how much your ideal venue will cost.


Couples typically spend between £5,000 and £8,500 on Baya dome hire, depending on the number of domes and configuration. These prices include furniture hire, flooring and lighting. You can read more about planning a Baya wedding here.
