We’re seeing a huge rise in couples deciding to spread their wedding celebrations across more than just one day, and who can blame them? Your wedding day is perhaps your only opportunity to get everyone you love together and celebrate, well, you! – and that is where wedding weekend venues come in. Wedding weekend venues give you the opportunity to stretch out your wedding celebrations, giving you more time with your loved ones (and more time to party).
The Copse, Oxfordshire
Couples often complain that they didn’t actually spend any time with some of their guests on their wedding day, or that they were stressed about getting round everyone to say hello and thank them for coming. Wedding weekend venues mean that those worries are a thing of the past, having the whole weekend to spend with your guests means that you can just sit back and relax on the big day – you can chat to great aunt Edna tomorrow…
There really is no better reason to get everyone together for the weekend than a wedding, so we’ve come up with some of our favourite weekend wedding venues to get you inspired.
