Affordable weddings at the Hythe Imperial Hotel

During the current cost-of-living crisis, many couples are finding it challenging to plan their dream wedding without breaking the bank.

However, with careful planning and the right wedding venue, it’s still possible to have a memorable and beautiful wedding without spending a fortune.

At the Hythe Imperial Hotel, one of Kent’s premier wedding venues, we offer a range of wedding packages designed to help couples create a special day without exceeding their budget.

These budget friendly wedding packages include everything from venue hire and the ceremony to catering and selected drinks. It makes it so much easier to plan a wedding while staying on track.

How to use a wedding package to save money

The Hythe Imperial’s wedding packages offer a variety of ways to save money on your wedding. Especially when you stick to some of these rules!

  • First. Choose a package that matches your guest count – our wedding packages are based on the number of guests, so you only pay for what you need. To save money, you might have to whittle-down your guest list.
  • Next, why not consider something off peak? Sunday weddings are more affordable. Your guests won’t mind, they’ll just be happy to be a part of your celebration.
  • Finally, be realistic about how much you have to spend. Set a firm budget, and stick to it. With lots of little extras included in select wedding packages, things such as prosecco for the speeches to an overnight stay at the hotel on your wedding night, you’ll be surprised how far the money goes.

All our Kent wedding packages are great options for a more budget-friendly wedding during these current times.

They are a way to save money for sure, but without compromising on the overall quality of your wedding day.

Our Small and Intimate wedding package

For couples seeking a cosy celebration with their closest loved ones, our Small and Intimate Wedding Package is ideal.

This small and intimate wedding package is perfect for smaller weddings with just your nearest family and friends. Or simply couples who prefer a more intimate atmosphere. Either way, it’s a super budget-friendly wedding option.

With a minimum of 30 guests, you can skip the stress of filling a large venue and focus on creating a truly special experience for your nearest and dearest.

This wedding package at the Hythe Imperial Hotel includes both the ceremony and reception, delicious dining with a four-course wedding breakfast, then bacon, sausage and egg baps for the evening. It even includes little touches that make your day feel extra special, like arrival drinks, wine with the meal and the toasts, even a hotel stay in one of our luxury rooms for the newlyweds afterwards.

A final tip – simplicity

It can be such a cliché. But keeping things simple is also a good tip to save money on your Kent wedding.

We see weddings of all shapes and sizes. But a simple, classic, understated wedding can be just as beautiful and memorable as a lavish one. So focus on the things that are most important to you and your partner, and don’t be afraid to let go of any extras that you can live without.

We’re confident we can make it work with one of our wedding packages – why not take a look at the full range?
