Frequently Asked Questions - Hotel wedding celebrations in Staffordshire
What type of hotel should I book for my wedding celebrations?
We have hotels of all types and sizes on Guides for Brides. Ranging from large city hotels to small boutique country hotels. Our venue search lets you filter between Boutique, Small and Large Hotels depending on what size is best 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.
There's often less that 100 guests rooms in a boutique hotel, and have unique, stylish decor. 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.
In a large hotel in Staffordshire, there's often hundreds of rooms for guest accommodation, so if you’re having a big wedding celebrations with plenty of guests, then you may find that a big hotel will suit you.
