This deal has featured in Saturday's press.

Included in the price - bride and grooms outfits, buffet reception for 20 guests, cake, confetti, bedroom wear, 2 nights accommodation for the happy couple.
Full details below (cut'n'pasted from The Sun Online)

A BUDGET hotel chain has launched the UK's cheapest wedding package — for just £199.
Cash strapped couples can tie the knot at Premier Inns in Warrington, Swansea, Sheffield, Wigan and Barnsley.

The bargain basement package includes the bride's dress and grooms suit, best man's speech template, confetti for the guests, a buffet reception for up to 20 guests and the wedding cake.

The newlyweds even get a two-night honeymoon at the venue, including dinner, bed and breakfast, sparkling wine, chocolates and the marital bed strewn with rose petals.

And the hotel provides the pair's wedding night UNDIES — PJs for the groom and a Primark nightie for the bride.

The average UK wedding now costs £21,000 so couples can save a huge £20,801.

Premier Inn spokesman Steve Conway said: "A wedding day doesn't need to cost a fortune for it to be special.

"We hope that our bargain wedding package will help couples to have an enjoyable, romantic, stress-free day and a honeymoon that won't break the bank."

The groom's wedding suit and bride's dress are from Asda, and they get to keep them.

For anyone wanting a small wedding/not a big deal this is perfect. Defo HOT! x

probably a bit better than just a plain registry office do-dates between november and december may encourage someone to rush into it methinks.

plenty will sneer at this but its a good deal,if you just want it simple and keep your cash for a house deposit/honeymoon etc,rather than drop 20k on a bunch of people stuffing their faces.

people who say their wedding day wouldnt be "special" unless it cost thousands are missing the actual POINT of getting married methinks

totally agree!

Are the 5 hotels next to an Argos? They could organise the wedding list for the happy couple :-)

I think that's a great deal personally

Yes hot from me.

Beats the nonsensical popular/chav idea that you need to spend £15k on a wedding

Wow. Those are going to be some really ugly weddings. I mean circus-freak ugly. And the kids oO.

A buffet for 20 at £200 works out at £10 a head (you can probably half that if you take off the cost of the rooms, dress etc).

Makes you wonder what sort of buffet you will get.

1 cheese sandwich and a packet of crisps maybe

No doubt they are hoping tbhat all the weding guests stay at the same hotel, giving Premier Inn some full hotels during a quiet period.

It has also given them some great free publicity as well.

Great deal imho

Amazing bargain. I have no idea how they can make money on it. They must be doing it at cost and just hope that lots of drinks are purchased as that is where they will probably make their money.

Almost worth considering tying the knot again

on second thoughts - it's a great deal for someone else !!!!!

I personally think this is a great deal for those on a budget or those not stupid enough to pay (borrow) a ridiculous amount of money for 1 day.

Deffo hot.

Any discount codes for this and i might propose?

cant imagine this will be up to much, but for a simple wedding at the cost of a night out on the town nowerdays i quite like the idea.

Defo hot from me

Unfortunately, I am married.(_;) Otherwise really a good deal for those people who are short of money.

Clearly says that the buffet is in the taybarns (next door to each hotel in the offer) so although the standard of food is awful its more than a sandwich!

And look at the free publicity Premier Inns are getting a well.

Think it's a great deal, going to dub it the "visa special" due to the quantity of people getting married using this deal just so they can stay in the country and make it look slightly legit

Why does someone always have to put a downer on this type of thing?
Do you have to spend crazy money to have a wonderful wedding day? No you do not!
At the end of the day it's what you are happy with and what you can afford. You make what you want out of this - either just keep it as it is or there's nothing to say you can't throw a bit more cash at it to add some personal extras.

For gods sake, what is it with wedding snobbery. Just because you are doing it cheaply doesnt mean its going to be a freak show, i've seen the tackiest weddings have thousands thrown at them - now that is a waste of money in my eyes, but if it made the couple happy then who's to stop them.

Get a grip people. It's never going to suit everyone, but what wedding would?

There is a middle ground between extravagant OTT affairs and £200 budget weddings.

Let's just see which newspaper this was copied from.....oh, The Sun.

Why not just let Jeremy Kyle conduct the ceremony? Although I suppose it works out cheap enough to invite each of your childrens' fathers.

You mean closed-mindedness. Single-mindedness implies something else.

Have to agree with ya there mate!

Wouldn't it be fun if we could have measure voting on this deal by gender. I'll bet you it gets the chaps voting hot and the ladies voting cold.
Heat it up lads, beer tokens are at stake !!!

Is Quidco available to???????

I paid much more than this just for my wedding cake!

Not for me but can see the appeal, will suit some peoples style/budget.

I think this is great, my husband and I got married nearly 7 yrs ago. It was during the housing boom and we were spending all of our money on housing renovations, so we decided to spend as little as possible on the wedding. We love eachother and as I was a wedding planner previously, I've seen couples spend a fortune and spend their whole time planning the "perfect day" only for it to fall by the wayside afterwards. We had 40 of our closest friends in the day time, we were married at our local town hall. I wore an really gorgeous ivory strapless prom dress which was from the Debenhams sale and cost £7 b/c the zip was broken. Had the zip replaced for a fiver. My sister and two best friends wore co-ordinating dresses and my husband wore one of his suits. We had a reception in my mum's garden (her garden is massive so we were lucky there) in the afternoon and our family made the buffet, and our friends owned a fab wine bar in our town so let us use that for the evening reception. Everyone had a fantastic time, our friends commented that it was so nice to be able to relax and enjoy the day without all the pomp of a traditional / expensive celebration.

We wouldn't have benefited from spending another £15k, we spent just over £1000 in all, the main expense being our wedding rings and the evening buffet. We had a great day and don't feel like we sacrificed anything

£200.00? Why not book it and insult your future wife?

At least do it tastefully, there's no need for £1000's but come on; just save up!

£200.00 would go easily on a heavy night on the **** in a city centre for two people!

Meh my friends said that the green mohawk was a good idea and cowboy boots totally worked in summer.

Friends lie.

Nothing says 'I Love You' more than a wedding at the Wigan Premier Inn.

sigh It's obvious that you're making comments to create a reaction. At least, that's what I hope, otherwise you really need to get out more and experience life. I'm imagining you've got an XBox, right?

Bargain!!

To be fair the Coventry one looks like a stunning location...

NOT!

I would rather do this and have a fabulous holiday every year for the next 10 years than blow £10,000+ on one days enjoyment.

A bit too cheap!

guilbert53

Makes you wonder what sort of buffet you will get.



A sarnie for poundland lol.
