Hotel wedding day Venues Frequently Asked Questions
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 search lets you add filters to your search in order to find the best size and type of hotel for you in Tyne and Wear.
Small hotels usually have between 10 and 50 bedrooms, 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 often have 100 bedrooms or less, and they tend to be decorated in a trendy fashion. 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 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.
