When does your wedding ceremony start?
In some countries, you can have your ceremony as early as 2 hours before your wedding, and many others will hold your wedding at around 4:00pm on the day of your wedding.
If you’re going to be out of town, it’s usually a good idea to hold your ceremony in your hotel room, as you can then be sure that it won’t be disrupted by other guests.
If it’s not possible to hold a ceremony in the same room, there’s also the option to hold it in a separate room and arrange a reception beforehand.
Where can I find a hotel to hold my wedding ceremony?
A hotel may be able to hold one of two wedding ceremonies for you.
If they can, they may offer you an advance rate to hold the ceremony at a different hotel, or arrange a hotel for you to stay in during the ceremony.
If not, you should consider booking a hotel as you are usually required to book the rooms for the ceremony before your ceremony even takes place.
There are a number of factors to consider, including whether the wedding is a same-sex or opposite-sex wedding, whether the groom is travelling with his partner or if there are any other guests or guests not planning to attend the wedding.
It’s also worth considering whether your hostel or hotel is a family-friendly facility, which is more likely to have a relaxed atmosphere for guests, as well as having a private area with separate seating and a separate bar.
Which hotel should I choose?
There are two main options for booking your wedding reception: booking a party reception (which typically includes a reception venue) and booking your own private reception (also typically includes an optional party reception).
If you have a small party and you want to hold an intimate reception, you’ll need to book a private reception first.
If, on the other hand, you’re planning to hold more intimate events, you may want to consider booking your party reception.
The booking process for a private wedding is simple.
Select from the options below to see which option is best for you, and if you want a separate private reception, choose the one that best suits you.
