Katie Price’s wedding blessing to Alex Reid next weekend will cost a third less than her wedding to Peter Andre five years ago, according to the papers.
The Sunday Mirror reports that the reality TV star – aka glamour model Jordan – has negotiated down the price of everything from the wedding cake to hair and make-up – and has even written invitations herself.
Her dress is estimated to cost around £2,000 – compared to the £20,000 she spent on the pink dress she wore to her last wedding – and she will have half as many guests.
She is estimated to have spent around a quarter of a million pounds on her wedding to Peter Andre in 2005, at Highclere Castle in Hampshire.
However a friend told the paper that Katie was determined to keep costs down as much as possible this time.
“If the theme of her wedding to Peter was no expense spared, it’s safe to say this time round it’s more like make do and mend,” the source said.
“If there’s something that she can haggle over, get at a knock-down price or better still for free then she will.”
“If she’s not careful she’ll get the nickname Katie Cut-Price.”
The bash will be held at a secret location, with singer Michelle Heaton, glamour model Emma B and former Celebrity Big Brother star Danielle Lloyd among the guests.
They are expected to toast the happy couple with bottles of champagne from Costco, while instead of the lobster and foie gras dinner that guests at her previous wedding enjoyed they will have a £30 a head dinner from catering firm Rhubarb.
And ITV2 will film the bash for her reality show What Katie Did Next.
