10 Reasons Hotels are Today's Hottest Wedding Venues

One of the hottest new wedding trends – the combination hotel wedding and reception – wraps convenience, practicality and savings in an appealing veil of romance and glamour that wedding couples find hard to resist. On-site wedding chapels and specialized staging allow couples to take their vows and celebrate their marriage in the same venue.

Combining ceremony and reception in one venue simplifies wedding planning, preparation and cost, important considerations for the growing number of late 20s and early 30s couples who are tying the knot far from their family homes and often paying for their own wedding.

Having a hotel wedding and reception offers many unique advantages:
  1. Event Expertise. Hotels have the experience, resources, connections and on-site staff to plan and execute a flawless wedding.
  2. Dinner Details. Choose a hotel that serves terrific food. Select the dinner menu, then relax and let the hotel’s experienced catering staff handle the details.
  3. Guest Convenience. Out-of-town guests can grab a cab at the airport, check in and relax. No need to rent a car or navigate an unfamiliar city.
  4. Guest Safety. With comfortable guest rooms waiting upstairs, guests can party the night away, toasting your happiness without worrying about getting home safely.
  5. Group Rate. Hotels offer attractive group rates that keep expenses affordable.
  6. Parking. Hotels provide plenty of parking and assistance with directions and navigation if necessary.
  7. Top Vendors. Having developed contacts with the area’s most respected vendors, hotels can help you connect with florists, photographers, DJs, and anything else you need.
  8. Perks. To celebrate your event, hotels often offer valuable perks and special gifts, from honeymoon suites to complimentary cake cutting service.
  9. Wedding Ceremony. Hotels can often accommodate wedding ceremonies - complete with flowers, candles and an officiant.
  10. Cost Effective. Holding multiple wedding events at one venue may cost less if discounts are offered.
