What are wedding loans?

A wedding loan is a type of personal loan where you spend the proceeds on organising and paying for your big day celebrations. So long as you’re able to repay the full loan amount, including interest and any fees payable back on time, a wedding loan would cover the costs.

Look at both yours and your partner’s incomes and outgoings, including any other loans you may have, to help decide what you can afford to borrow.
