Holding a wedding on a budget is always a bit of a juggling act, balancing the ceremony and reception venues with caterers, wardrobe, guests and all the rest. Sometimes it may seem impossible to get married anywhere in Scotland, let alone Edinburgh’s city centre or Old Town without dipping into the life savings. So let’s have a look at some options to get you thinking. A good place to start (if you’re not doing a church ceremony) is holding the ceremony at a local registry office and then the reception at a nearby pub or municipal building such as a library or the City Chambers. You might also look into hiring space at a nearby university, which often are priced quite low, or splurging a tiny bit on hiring a pavilion and hosting your wedding outdoors. This often beats the price of hiring an indoor wedding venue and makes for some excellent photos! Edinburgh is packed with cheap wedding venues, especially if you’re willing to get a bit creative so see what you can find.
So now that you’re thinking of a few options, how about figuring out where you should look to find the best cheap wedding options in Edinburgh? For those of you with a lot of out of town guests, have a look between Edinburgh airport and the city centre. You’ll also want to check out all of the area around Southside and the area surrounding Holyrood and George Square. Heading north towards Canonmills and Bonnington along Dundas Street will also net you with a few good options.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
