Why hold your Wedding Ceremony and Reception at a hotel venue?

There are definite advantages for planning your wedding ceremony and reception at a hotel.  You will save time and money by choosing a hotel for your wedding and guest room block.  Here are some of those advantages:

1)  The Bride, Groom and Wedding Party will not need to book transportation services (limo or party bus) to take them to and from the church or ceremony site, then to the reception location.

2)  If the Ladies are getting their hair and makeup done at the hotel, they will already be onsite the night before the Wedding Day.  They will not need to travel from a home or other hotel suite to the ceremony venue.

3)  Everyone (Wedding Party, Families and Guests) will be much more relaxed knowing they are already on location for all of the festivities of the Wedding Day.  You will not need to reserve shuttle services for your guests from their hotel(s) to the ceremony and/or reception.
4) The Wedding Party can decide to rent a limo or party bus to go offsite for pictures on their wedding day, especially if they choose to have a "First Look" and see each other privately before the official Ceremony planned for the early evening.  Check out Dave and Carmen's pictures around downtown Detroit, Michigan:

5)  The Bride and Groom have the advantage of seeing their Reception Ballroom all set up prior to the Reception start time since they are on site all day.

6)  Also very important is the convenience factor for your Guests.  They will arrive the night before or the morning of the wedding, valet their cars, and will not need to leave again until they depart the day after the wedding. 

There are many beautiful hotels in the city and beyond that are a great choice for Weddings.  Ask your Wedding Planner, Kathy Byrum of Dream Wedding and Event Planners to research and recommend the hotel(s) that best suits your style and budget.

  1. Seems like a fabulous deal. Weddings happen once in a lifetime for most people so the reception should be the best!
