FAQ's - Hotel Wedding Venues

What type of hotel should I book for my wedding?

We have hotels of all types and sizes on Guides for Brides. Ranging from large city hotels to small boutique country hotels. Our venue finder lets you select filters to narrow it down to exactly what you want, whether it's boutique, large or a small hotel. It also lets you filter through different capacities, prices and facilities that the hotel has. This should help you find the perfect hotel wedding venue for you in East Lothian .

Small hotels often have somewhere between 10 and 50 guest rooms, so if you’d like a wedding venue that your whole wedding 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 are often decorated in a modern, stylish way. 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.

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