Wedding Package Cost per head
______________________

To calculate the cost of your own wedding, please start here

The chart below shows which Wedding Package offers best value based on whether you have 50, 75, 100 or 125 Guests and whether you have your wedding on a weekday or a weekend.

The Cost Per Head shown is based on the standard two course wedding breakfast only. The cost per head will increase as you add extras such as the Evening Buffet and Drinks Package.

Most venues require that you have three elements at a wedding:

(i) 3 course wedding breakfast,
(ii) an Evening Buffet.

This gives you a total rate per head that is higher. In some venues the rate per head inclusive of the three elements above plus venue hire can be very high. Rates of £120-180 per guest and more can apply. These 'per guest' costs tend to be 'hidden' within the overall wedding package and curiously may not even be noticed by Wedding Couples.

At Craig y Nos Castle you could opt just to have the Wedding Breakfast at £50/ head though in practice most Couples will have a Drinks Package and an Evening Buffet or, at the very least, a Cheeseboard Buffet. The chart below does not show 'total' per head cost, just the Wedding Breakfast cost.

Slightly higher minimum numbers on Saturday and Friday weddings means our Wedding Package offers do not apply at lower guest numbers for weekends. Choose a midweek wedding for lower numbers.

See also the Last Minute Wedding Package.

Our Special Weekend Wedding Package offers best value up to around 100 guests. Above 100 guests the Members Club Package may be more flexible as there is no accommodation use required. And with Members Package the more guests you have, the more your wedding is discounted.

Your wedding planner will recommend the most suitable and best value wedding package for you based on your own requirements. There is an incentive for you to invite more guests for the whole day. Because of the distance to travel here for most guests, we advise all guests be invited for the whole day, rather than have a higher number of evening guests and a lower number of day guests.

If you have got this far, you will probably be a local wedding with reduced use of the Accommodation. If all your guests are reasonably local, you will have more day guests but few will want to stay overnight.


Would you have a minimum of 75 day guests, with none or very few wanting to stay overnight?

Higher numbers achieve reduced venue hire or no venue hire, hence the lower costs on higher numbers.
If your numbers do not fit the above range of packages, then have another look at our Last Minute Package. This requires only 50 guests to Wedding Breakfast Sunday to Friday (70 on Saturdays) and 20 guests overnight. Available on any date within next 6 months and first Quarter of next year.
