FAQ's - Hotel Wedding Venues
What type of hotel should I book for my wedding?
You'll find a wide variety of hotels on Guides for Brides. We have hotels of all sizes and areas, whether you're looking for a small city centre hotel or a large country hotel. 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.
There's often less that 100 guests rooms in a boutique hotel, and are usually decorated in a particularly stylish way. Boutique hotels tend to be located in the city, 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 wedding with plenty of guests, then you may find that a big hotel will suit you. Large hotels often have more wedding spaces to choose from, such as outdoor marquees, ballrooms or purpose-built wedding suites, and are a good choice for Asian weddings in particular.
