Getting married in a hotel is one of the most popular choices of wedding venue after the churches and other religious venues. Hotels have the ability to provide rooms, large spaces, gardens, dining and service all under one roof. Hotels are available 365 days a year 24 hours a day and 7 days a week it allows a large variety of choice when it comes to booking your wedding day.
The wedding venue is one of the most important and most expensive parts of the wedding budget so its very important to consider the advantages and disadvantages when looking at individual hotels.
The plus of having a wedding in a hotel arises with the ability to have everything under one roof. You don’t have to think about transporting or worrying about your guests locating another location for the reception after the ceremony. The coordination of the day made is made a tad easier since your main concern after the church procession is no longer ensuring “uncle David” isn’t lost on the M25.
Other advantages involve having rooms to get ready prior and after the wedding, this can be great for wedding album as the photographer will be able to get some fantastic shots in the hotel room whilst your preparing for the day. If your lucky enough to get a venue with stunning large high ceilings ensure your photographer gets good the use out of the room; it can turn any wedding album into a work of art and class. Furthermore it also works out fortunate that you don’t have the opportunity to be stuck in traffic on your way over to the ceremony no excuses for lateness! As It would simply involve walking down the hall and not having to worry about hiring a car.
Other advantages include the bar or lounge area for a drinks reception, after the ceremony the hotel will organise the distribution of drinks to your guests so you have the opportunity to greet your friends and family and have a few minor pictures. Its much better than disturbing everyone with the trek over to the second location. Similarly the sit down meal will also be of the same location again only located within the vicinity of the hotel allowing the organisation to run smoothly and with ease.
Most hotels will have a prepared dance floor so this can cut costs with the need to hire out a dance floor so the party can continue till the early hours of the morning.
Since its a hotel your guests have the opportunity to book a room at the hotel and stay for the wedding breakfast the following day, this usually works out really well as you don’t have to worry about driving, everyone can drink and enjoy themselves and not worry about the long journey home.
The hotel will usually sort out any minor problems you have or need on the day, with reception desk right at the front door if there is anything your short off they will surly help you out, something you cant get at a regular hall wedding.
The clean up, depending on the hotel majority will do the clean up after the party so it won’t be necessary for the bride and groom to be sweeping up after the long days events.
