There are so many pros to booking a hotel wedding venue – there’s plenty of room for your guests to stay on site (and usually a great rate for doing so!), the staff are all experts in hospitality and plenty of hotel wedding venues have fabulous catering, grounds and added facilities like spas and health clubs.
“Hotels boast the advantage of being able to offer every necessary part of the big day all in one location,” says Joe Cobb, of Lake District Country Hotels.
“Hotel weddings enable couples to invite family and friends from further afield, without having to worry about providing somewhere for them to stay.”
“Your guests will be able to celebrate with you the morning after, making hotel weddings feel like close-knit occasions. Plus, the convenient nature of having everyone in one place means one less stress for both the organisers and the attendees.”
“Hotel weddings also provide a kind of wedding ‘headquarters’ as you can hold every element of your special day in the venue. From walking down the aisle, to rehearsal dinners, wedding suites and a delicious brunch the following morning, every aspect of your wedding is covered in a hotel.”
