What type of hotel should I book for my special day?
We have hotels of all types and sizes on Guides for Brides. Ranging from large city hotels to small boutique country hotels. Our venue finder lets you filter through small and large hotels to find the perfect size for you.
Small hotels often have somewhere between 10 and 50 guest rooms, so if you’d like a wedding venue that your whole wedding party can take over, then a small hotel may be the perfect choice for you. This also means that you’re less likely to encounter other guests on your day, if you don’t already have an exclusive use booking.
In a boutique hotel, there will usually be no more than 100 rooms, and have unique, stylish decor. These types of hotels are often located in an urban environment, so if you’re marrying in the city and want your guests to have super chic accommodation, then a boutique hotel is a great choice.
Larger hotels can have hundreds and hundreds of bedrooms, so if you’re having a big special day with plenty of guests, then you may find that a big hotel will suit you. Large hotels often have more special day spaces to choose from, such as outdoor marquees, ballrooms or purpose-built special day suites, and are a good choice for Asian special days in particular.
