Where are you and your family and friends crashing for the night after you and your new spouse spend the day and night celebrating your wedding? It’s a critical decision that needs to be made as part of your wedding planning. Keep the following thoughts in mind before you book your wedding night accommodations.
How Many Rooms Do You Need?
Estimate the total guests coming to your wedding and reception that need overnight lodging. Use that number as a guide to decide how many hotel rooms you might need to block off for friends and family. Hotel staff should work with you on providing discounted hotel room rates for your wedding guests. Additionally, they may also offer the married couple a heavily discounted room rate for the business you are sending their way.
Ambiance and Amenities
Is there an inviting lobby? Does your hotel offer an on-site restaurant and bar? If you’re a social couple that likes to spend as much time with friends and family as possible, these types of amenities are a plus for those seeking more social time to eat and drink after your wedding reception. These types of amenities are also great for the smaller events after your wedding such as breakfast and brunch options with families!
Your Wedding Night Will Be Hectic
Just remember that your wedding night likely won’t signal the start of your honeymoon. We don’t want to downplay the fact that your first night as a married couple will be spectacular. If you’re like most just married couples, you stay up late with friends and family during your reception. You likely won’t get much sleep because you will be up packing for the honeymoon and sifting through all the awesome presents you received. Pick a place that is convenient above all else.
If you decide to stay at the same hotel as your friends and family, remember that you might not have much privacy if you are staying in the same hotel room floor as your wedding party. If you want some space from your wedding party after the reception ends, ask the front desk to reserve a hotel room for you in a separate part of the hotel away from friends and family.
Room Privacy Tip: Don’t let others know the location of your room if you don’t want them knocking on your door all night. The last thing you want is your new in-laws knocking on the door before bed to wish you goodnight.
Choose Your Honeymoon Room Location Wisely
This is your first night together as a married couple. Also, make sure the front desk is well aware of this and that you receive a room that is far away from the following:
- Street noise
- The elevators
- The ice machines and snack bars
- The pool
- The lobby
- Rooms that are booked for other groups that may be noisy in the halls.
Stay Close to the Reception Venue
Consider booking a room in a hotel near the reception venue when planning your wedding reception. If it’s possible, pick a venue spot that has your perfect wedding reception venue and an on-site hotel. Above all, this allows you to crash in a comfortable hotel room just steps from your wedding reception.
