Frequently Asked Questions - Hotel wedding day Venues
What type of hotel should I book for my wedding day?
At Guides for Brides we have hotels of all sizes, from city centre boutique hotels to countryside houses and well-known chains. Our venue finder lets you filter through small and large hotels to find the perfect size for you.
Small hotels have between 10 to 50 guest rooms on average, 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 they tend to be decorated in a trendy fashion. They often have city centre locations, 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 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.
