Benefits of Having a Hotel Wedding

Choosing the ideal location for your vows may seem like a major headache, but it doesn’t have to be. Forget Google searching restaurants and generic banquet halls. The range of amenities and sizable staff that come with hosting your special day at a hotel will make for a stress-free wedding day.

Convenience of Catering

Hotels take care of all the catering details for your wedding. Everything from cooking, serving, presentation and clean up will be provided on location. This eliminates the need to search for a caterer in addition to a venue, which will make for fewer people you need to coordinate with for the big day. The food will be fresher, as well, since you don’t have to account for delivery time.

Location of Lodging

You will need to take into consideration where out-of-town guests will be staying. This is where the convenience of a hotel wedding is unbeatable, since guests won’t have to travel far after the reception and you won’t have to worry about anyone driving home after toasting to your happily ever after.

Accessibility of Amenities

Chances are, your guests will be staying for more than one night. They will need to find ways to occupy themselves during the time before and after the wedding. A hotel wedding provides onsite entertainment sources like game rooms and bars.

Breaks for Your Budget

Most hotels are happy to offer add-on packages for on-site weddings. Rather than paying for separate music, catering and decoration companies, hotels offer combination packages to accommodate all these needs. This can save couples a significant amount of money that can be put towards other things, like the honeymoon.

Versatility of Venue

Depending on the theme or aesthetic of your wedding celebration, there is a hotel out there to suit your needs. From modern finishes to more vintage charm, the possibilities are endless. Determine what style your ceremony and reception will reflect, then find a hotel that matches these needs.
