Hotel wedding celebrations FAQ
What type of hotel should I book for my wedding celebrations?
On Guides for Brides, we have a wide range of hotels listed. Our venue finder lets you filter through small and large hotels to find the perfect size for you.
Small hotels usually have between 10 and 50 bedrooms, so if you’d like a wedding celebrations venue that your whole wedding celebrations 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 often have 100 bedrooms or less, and are often decorated in a modern, 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.
Large hotels can have hundreds of rooms, so if you’re having a big wedding celebrations with plenty of guests, then you may find that a big hotel will suit you. Large hotels often have more wedding celebrations spaces to choose from, such as outdoor marquees, ballrooms or purpose-built wedding celebrations suites, and are a good choice for Asian wedding celebrations in particular.
