March - Wedding National Survey

Updated: 2 days ago

We are in full swing for 2023! We have just received the National Wedding Survey asking over 2,400 couples who got married in 2022 all about their wedding - from when they got engaged right through to how much they spent and how many vendors they hired. By only surveying couples who actually married in 2022, we can build an accurate picture of the average UK wedding.
