Getting married?

Let Dudley Building Society help you organise your finances ready for the big day.

A recent survey has revealed the average cost of a wedding in the UK is a staggering £17,674, with London being the most expensive at an average cost of £24,039. With this in mind, it is worth saving for your wedding as early as possible.

We offer a range of savings accounts to suit a variety of situations and needs, and we don’t believe there is a strict set of rules you need to follow to reach your savings goal. We want to give you the flexibility of managing your money the way you want to, whilst providing additional support and services to ensure a smooth transition into married life.

Saving up?

Generally, the longer you tie-up your money, the better the interest rate will be. Those looking to put away a deposit for at least a year can benefit from a higher return and there will be less temptation to spend funds early. You can make the most of a fixed rate bond or an ISA where you won’t have to pay any tax on interest up to £20,000.

Access anytime accounts

Many of the wedding costs will come before the actual day - Stag and Hen parties, dresses, suits, deposits for venues, catering etc. With this in mind, other wedding savers may require access to their funds for expenses along the way. Our Easy Access Saver allows you to build your savings, whilst giving you the peace of mind that you have access to your money at any time.

We can also provide a range of other services via our third party advisors at Concept Financial Services. They can offer advice in relation to name changes, tax implications, budgeting, estate planning and will writing.
