Hotels are one of the top choices for couples in Cardiff , and it’s easy to see why. Hotel wedding venues feature lots of top quality facilities, often priding themselves on luxurious guest rooms, on-site catering and plenty of expert staff on hand to help make your dream day a reality. Hotel weddings are suitable for any couple, whether they are hoping for their wedding in an urban or rural environment.

Plenty of hotels in Cardiff offer easily customisable wedding packages to make wedding planning as easy as possible. Hotels often have a professional wedding planner, who will be your point of contact from the date you put down your deposit until the day itself, where they'll help to coordinate your wedding day. Another perk to having a hotel wedding is that your guests can head up to their bedrooms after dancing the night away only to meet you for a delightful breakfast the following day.

Having your wedding at a hotel is the perfect idea for you if:

  • You're getting married abroad so have lots of guests that need to stay the night or two.
  • You want all of your catering done in-house.
  • Large function rooms are required to fit a high number of guests in.
  • You want to easily provide your guests with bedrooms.
  • You want a wedding coordinator to help plan your wedding.

Hotel wedding day Venues FAQ

What type of hotel should I book for my wedding day?

On Guides for Brides, we have a wide range of hotels listed. Our venue finder lets you filter through small and large hotels to find the perfect size for you.

Small hotels have between 10 to 50 guest rooms on average, so if you’d like a wedding day venue that your whole wedding day party can take over, then a small hotel may be the perfect choice for you. This also means that you’re less likely to encounter other guests on your day, if you don’t already have an exclusive use booking.

There's often less that 100 guests rooms in a boutique hotel, and have unique, stylish decor. These types of hotels are often located in an urban environment, so if you’re marrying in the city and want your guests to have super chic accommodation, then a boutique hotel is a great choice.

Large hotels can have hundreds of rooms, so if you’re having a big wedding day with plenty of guests, then you may find that a big hotel will suit you. Large hotels often have more wedding day spaces to choose from, such as outdoor marquees, ballrooms or purpose-built wedding day suites, and are a good choice for Asian wedding days in particular.

Does booking a hotel guarantee exclusive use?

If you’re booking a hotel for your wedding, it’s possible that there will be be other guests on site. Don’t assume that just because you’ve made a wedding booking, you’ll have the entire hotel to yourself.

At most hotels in Cardiff , they will offer you an option to book out the whole hotel for your day so that no other guests will be in the premises. You need to ask your chosen hotel about this extra feature though . You can even hire out the hotel for the whole weekend in some cases! However, this may incur an extra charge. There are Exclusive Use and One Wedding Per Day filters in the Guides for Brides search if you know these are important criteria for your wedding venue.

Will my guests have their pick of hotel rooms?

Again, it’s important to check with your hotel wedding venue how many rooms are included in your wedding package. Some packages come with a certain number of rooms included, whereas others will require you to book separately. Check with your chosen hotel in Cardiff , but they are likely to offer your wedding guests a preferential rate on all rooms.

If you’re booking your hotel venue on an exclusive use basis, you'll often be expected to fill all the accommodation. Be sure to ask your shortlisted venues in Cardiff when enquiring if they have a minimum number of rooms to be filled.

Is the bridal suite included in my wedding package when I book a hotel wedding venue?

One of the best bits about having a hotel wedding is that you’ll often have a fabulous bridal suite included! Not only does this mean that you’ll be able to spend your first night as a married couple in a beautifully decorated suite, but it's also usually available for bridal prep on the wedding morning. When booking your wedding venue viewing, be sure to ask whether the bridal suite is included in your booking in Cardiff

What do hotel wedding packages typically include?

The typical hotel will have a few different levels of wedding packages, depending on what you want included and what your budget is Hotel wedding packages often include the catering, drinks, table linens and glassware, to start. They can also include everything from floral arrangements to DJs and even wedding cakes or stationery.

How can I save money on my hotel wedding?

Taking advantage of packages like this is a brilliant way to make your wedding budget go further, but there are other ways to save money on your hotel wedding in Cardiff . Having your wedding on a weekday will save a lot of money, as will picking a date in winter or spring and it's not during the peak summer months, meaning less competition.
