Some of the best wedding venues in Lancashire are hotels, and it’s easy to see why. Hotel wedding venues come with all the mod cons, often having luxury bedrooms, on-site catering and plenty of staff with a wealth of experience on hand to help make your dream day a reality. Hotels are the perfect choice for any couple, whether you want a city wedding with easy access on public transport or a country hotel wedding with beautiful grounds in Lancashire.
The majority of hotels in Lancashire offer bespoke packages to suit your requirements to make wedding planning as easy as possible. Hotels often have a professional wedding planner, who will be your point of contact from the minute you place your deposit for you wedding until the day itself. Another perk to getting married in a hotel is that your guests can easily retire to their rooms after dancing the night away only to meet you for a delightful breakfast the following day.
Getting married in a hotel setting is ideal for you if:
- You're getting married abroad so have lots of guests that need to stay the night or two.
- You want all of your catering done in-house.
- Large function rooms are required to fit a high number of guests in.
- You want to easily provide your wedding guests with a place to sleep.
- You'd like a wedding coordinator to help you with the logistics.
Frequently Asked Questions - Hotel Wedding Venues
What type of hotel should I book for my wedding?
At Guides for Brides we have hotels of all sizes, from city centre boutique hotels to countryside houses and well-known chains. Our venue search lets you filter between Boutique, Small and Large Hotels depending on what size is best for you.
Small hotels tend to have between 10 and 50 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.
There's hundreds of guest rooms in a large hotel, 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.
