The "Garage" Wedding
Ben Alty and Karolina Nowakowska, both from the UK, decided they didn't want to start married life together in debt so they did what any serious thrifty bride and groom would do...they held their wedding reception in a converted garage.
The budget-cutting couple spent just £1,000 on their big day. The bride's gown was bought on the cheap from a charity Cancer research shop. They also saved a ton of money because the celebration rings were Ben's great grandmother's and grandfather's.
A five-course wedding breakfast for 25 was held at Ben's parents' house, with the reception being held in a converted garage.
The couple's biggest extravagance was £250 on champagne and other booze for the party - all bought during two-for-one supermarket promotions.
