Hotels and Resorts
The decision to host the ceremony and reception of your destination wedding at a hotel can simplify the wedding plans and make it more affordable for couples on a budget, especially if you go for an all-inclusive hotel.
Hotels can provide you with catering service, bar, staff, tables, chairs, china, glassware, linens, etc., which means that many details will be instantly eliminated from the “to-do” list; plus it is convenient for you and your fiancé since it will save you a lot of money in hiring transportation for your guests.
Making a room block at a hotel can also represent some benefits for you and your guests, such as a complimentary champagne toast, an hour of on-the-house open bar during the cocktail, free room upgrades, anniversary certificates, or even the set up for the ceremony with decorations, flowers, sound system, and an Officiant without charge.
There are many pros about holding your wedding at a hotel; however, it is important to know that venues in the hotels are usually not assigned until you have a certain total number of guests/rooms reserved; in addition, most of the time, hotels host more than one wedding on the same day which can be confusing for guests.
Also, some hotels have their own list of vendors and may force you to use them or charge you an additional fee for outside vendors.
Finally, since hotels have other guests staying there on their vacation, your wedding may not be as private and intimate as you wish.
