Early 2017 will herald a flurry of wedding planning activity, as 26% of couples in Ireland will typically become engaged in December. While this is an exciting time for soon to be
newlyweds, it can also be tinged with anxiety. According to a recent weddingsonline.ie
survey, the average couple will pay more than €22,500 for their wedding and honeymoon, invite 156 of their nearest and dearest and spend over €60 per guest. It’s little wonder the question of paying for it all can bring on sleepless nights.
With the launch of Listowel Credit Union’s wedding loan however, there’s no need to lose sleep. The loan is available to all members of the credit union at the great value of 9.41% APR.*
Denis Dillane, CEO of Listowel Credit Union says: “With the array of wedding blogs,
magazines and fairs promoting must-have 2017 trends and honeymoon destinations, it’s understandable that things start to become costly. Indeed, it’s expected around one in four couples will borrow for their big day. At Listowel Credit Union, we will only propose wedding loans with realistic terms, which can be paid back in a way that works best for each couple. Our loans can have a repayment plan to suit individual circumstances, and there is always the option to repay lump sums without incurring any extra penalties or charges.”
So whether the aunties and uncles are coming out of the woodwork for an invitation, or the guest list is being kept to a select few, Listowel Credit Union will provide support with loans that fit every individual wedding, and which are based on fair, reasonable terms.
Denis continued: “At Listowel Credit Union we have been offering access to affordable
credit in our local community for over 43 years. We are always on hand to provide guidance, be that with borrowing, or with saving towards the big day. We can assist couples to work within their budget, and plan out what they can afford to spend. We also offer great value Travel Insurance through coveru.ie and foreign exchange for that all-important honeymoon. So with us supporting happy couples the whole way, they can rest easy and catch up on their beauty sleep before the big day.”
