Choosing a wedding venue is a huge decision and there are many things to consider. Don’t get carried away with all the excitement of looking at venues and forget to consider accommodation. There are heaps of benefits to being able to spend the night at the wedding venue, so make sure you ask about this when viewing venues.
Imagine how much easier it will be for your guests who need to arrange somewhere to stay for the wedding. Choosing a venue that ticks this box makes life easier for everyone involved. Here are some more benefits:
- No stress about getting home
Having accommodation available at your Gloucester Hotel Wedding Venue means that everyone can relax and let their hair down, knowing that they only have to go upstairs or along a corridor to find their bed for the night. Those who might otherwise have had to pass on the celebratory champers can now relax and indulge in toasting the happy couple.
- Sole use of the venue
If you have quite a large guest list, chances are your party will book up all the accommodation meaning you’ll virtually have the venue to yourselves. Imagine the entire venue staging just your personal celebrations with just your guests having use of the venue for the whole day. You’ll feel like celebrities!

- Spend more time with guests
When you remove the need for travel after the reception, your guests will likely stay longer to enjoy the party. The next morning, you can all meet for breakfast together in the restaurant before people head off home.
- Wedding suite sorted
Most importantly, the accommodation for the wedding night is taken care of and is close at hand. Choosing a venue with accommodation makes the night easier to organise as you don’t have to factor in extra transport to take you anywhere else.
- Less chance for things to go wrong
The less movement between places, the less logistics to organise. There is less chance for things to go wrong, things to go missing or having to wait around for transport etc. Having everything in one place makes it far easier to keep everything safe.
Obviously, this will depend on the size of the venue but with a small to medium-sized venue, you host all the weekend celebrations in one location with guests staying over as well. You might even be able to rent out the whole establishment for your own personal use and have a much more intimate and special celebration for you and your guests.
