FAQ's - Hotel wedding day Venues
What type of hotel should I book for my wedding 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 day venue that your whole wedding day 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.
Boutique hotels tend to have less than 100 rooms, and have unique, stylish decor. They're often situated in a city centre, 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.
There's hundreds of guest rooms in a large hotel, so if you’re having a big wedding day with plenty of guests, then you may find that a big hotel will suit you. Large hotels often have more wedding day spaces to choose from, such as outdoor marquees, ballrooms or purpose-built wedding day suites, and are a good choice for Asian wedding days in particular.
