It's doorbells over wedding bells - survey.
PEOPLE in Wales are shunning big white weddings in a bid to get on
the property ladder, according to new research. The research from
Barclays revealed that 48% - nearly half of the Welsh population - would
choose to put their savings towards a deposit for a property. Marriages
are in the minority with just one in ten (9%) opting for wedding bells
over their own doorbell. With the cost of a wedding averaging PS20,000,
the findings reveal that (7%) of Welsh consumers have decided to
downsize the scale of their nuptials or delay them altogether in an
effort to save for a property purchase. So daunting is the prospect for
many that 4% would consider asking guests for a monetary contribution
towards the cost of their wedding instead of a traditional gift if they
were looking to tighten the purse strings.
