Things to consider

Weddings can be expensive, but a loan can help you spread the cost over time. You’ll pay more overall because of the interest we charge on the amount borrowed.

Planning - There are many things to consider when organising a wedding. A budget will give you a good idea of what your biggest expenses will be and how much everything will cost.

Do your research - It is important to understand if you are getting a fair price on things for your wedding. Do research and shop around to get the best deals.

  • A wedding loan is a personal loan. Once the money is in your account, you then have the flexibility in how you want to use the loan towards the cost of your wedding.

    There are some things you can't use a personal loan for. 

    We can't issue loans for:

    - Any illegal activity.

    - Speculative purchases such as, gambling, investments and share purchases.

    - Business-related purposes.

    - The purchase or lease of land or property, either in full or in part. This includes deposits.

    - Timeshares/holiday clubs.

    These limits apply whether you want to borrow money for yourself, or to support someone else. For example, you can't take out a loan and give it to someone as a deposit for a house.

  • Getting a personalised quote with us does not use a credit check or affect your credit score.

    When you apply for a wedding loan, we will perform a credit check. This is to help us understand how likely you are to pay the loan back. Learn more about how credit checks work.

  • We look at lots of things when calculating the interest rate you are offered. When you apply, we will give you a personalised quote based on many factors, such as:

    - Credit history.

    - Past account history.

    - How much you want to borrow.

    - How long you want to repay the loan over.

    - Other personal details we hold.

  • You'll start to repay the loan the month after you take it out - you can specify which date each month the repayment comes out. 

    You can change this date in the future if you need to. The repayments will be taken each month by Direct Debit.

    The repayments are fixed so they won't change until the loan is paid off.

    If you miss a repayment (such as there is not enough money in your account), we will try once more to take it by Direct Debit within 7 days. If we still can't take your repayment, you'll be charged a £25 fee. Full details will be provided when you apply.

    You can make extra payments with no charge. If you pay the loan off early, we may charge you up to 58 days’ interest – but you are still likely to save on interest payments.

How much we lend and the rate available are subject to our assessment of your circumstances. You must be 18 years of age or over and a UK resident. You must have had a Lloyds Bank current account for at least one month.
