Congratulations! The big question has been popped and the answer was YES and since that day you have been busily planning your special day. Venue shopping, deciding on your bridal party, the number of guests, theming, styling, wedding dress shopping, suit shopping, honeymoon location, and the list goes on. The one item that can often get left till last is wedding accommodation.
Accommodation is an important part of your special day as it is the first place you spend the evening as husband and wife, so it is important to think about where you want to stay. It is also important to think about whether you want to stay in the same hotel as your wedding guests and bridal party. Do you want the occasion to be private or would you prefer to have all your nearest and dearest in one place so you can carry on the wedding festivities the next day?
Look for accommodation close to your reception venue if you can’t actually stay at the venue itself. Ask the venue for recommendations and see if they have special deals with any local hotels. Make sure you arrange transport from the venue to the hotel if it isn’t possible to walk there. Hire a minibus to transport the bridal party to the hotel, or ask a local taxi company to have cars waiting at the venue at a certain time.
Apartment-style hotels are the perfect wedding accommodation solution not only for the bridal party but also for the wedding guests. They provide space, storage, and amenities for the bridal party to get ready. With fully equipped kitchens they can even place some champagne and nibbles in the fridge to start the celebrations. For families sharing it is ideal for the budget and provides a home away from home. Weddings can be costly for guests, especially if they have had to pay for airfares and transportation, not to mention a new outfit and gift, so having somewhere that allows them to self-cater pre and post-wedding is a big saving.
Be sure to book in advance and encourage your guests to do the same. Pending on the location of your venue there may be a limited choice of accommodation, it could simply be a popular spot for holidaymakers, or there may be other events and weddings at the same time.
Whatever you decide to do, have a spectacular and memorable day. Congratulations.
