Rose Your Ceremony at your Reception Venue

Many couples are choosing to have their marriage ceremony at the same venue as their wedding reception. This can make your planning easier and save you and your guests travel time. Why not have everything in the one place, from the marriage ceremony to picturesque photograph opportunities, to a divine wedding reception? This can be a little more expensive, however the benefit is a less stressful wedding day leaving you and your family to enjoy the celebration.

Here's a rough guide on what you may need to discuss with a venue before making a booking:
  • The number of guests and the size of the function room.
  • The menu - most venues will offer a choice of menus and wines at various prices.
  • Seating plans - ask what seating plans are possible in the space available.
  • Room and table decorations - ask to see the table linen and place settings available.
  • Parking - does the venue have enough parking spaces for all guests.
  • If the reception is being held in a hotel they will often offer special rates for the bridal suite, or for guests to stay overnight.
Destination Weddings – make sure there is enough accommodation for you and all your guests at either the wedding venue or nearby hotels with a price range to suit all your guests’ budgets. Tip - when looking at accommodation numbers, have a good idea of who can actually travel to your destination wedding first.

In most localities there is a church, school or local authority hall available for hire.

For a small wedding you may choose a canape’ catered reception in a creative and arty space. Why not hire a local art gallery or listed heritage building? Alternatively, a fantastic idea could be a country retreat, renting the rooms too so that your select few guests can enjoy a long weekend as well as the wedding.

A garden wedding can be a great alternative to a larger venue and less expensive too. Quiet and intimate in a beautiful setting. It is advisable to make sure that you have some cover; a marquee or even inside the house. There are a great many exclusive holiday homes that can act as both the wedding venue and the reception venue.

You can book a venue such as a reception centre, function room, restaurant, resort, club, cruise, or other venue type that will do all the organizing for you, or you can manage everything yourself and source a venue, caterers, flowers, equipment hire, entertainment, etc, or anything in between. The choice is yours and we are here to help you.
