are you have probably stayed in a hotel before. You may have also attended a banquet
or wedding reception in one of the hotel's banquet facilities. You may find many
different functions for a hotel as you plan the events surrounding your wedding
day. Hotels can be used for a variety of purposes when it comes to wedding planning.
They can be used to accommodate out-of-town guests and so much more.
you are looking for a beautiful site for your ceremony, many hotels have places
in their facilities that would be perfect for a wedding ceremony. Many fine hotels
have party planners on staff who can help you coordinate the aspects of the wedding
ceremony. Some hotels that are on the river or lake have rooms with breath-taking
views that would provide a memorable place to exchange your vows.
nice hotels have banquet and catering services available, which make them ideal
sites for wedding receptions. The location you choose for your reception should
compliment the overall theme and tone you have set at the wedding ceremony. It
should be held immediately following the wedding and in close proximity to the
church or park where the ceremony was held. Find out exactly what services the
facility offers before booking a hotel.
having your reception at a hotel, you can ensure your guests don't drink and drive
after the festivities. Many hotels will give guests a discount if they were attending
a wedding reception in the facility. Many wedding couples even spend the night
in the hotel and take off for their honeymoon the following morning.
hotels are also the best place for out-of-town guests to stay while they are in
town for your wedding festivities. About four months before your wedding, find
out how many out-of-town guests you will be expecting. You may want to reserve
a block of rooms for them at a hotel that is close to the ceremony and reception
sites. Talk to the hotel manager about any volume discounts that may be offered.
hotels offer smaller meeting rooms that can be used for bridal showers, rehearsal
dinners, bachelor or bachelorette parties. Using the same hotel for all of these
functions helps to provide a uniform tone and style to your wedding. Be sure to
find a hotel that is comfortable and welcoming. You should get to know the staff,
especially the banquet coordinator
