Tips To Make Your Hotel Wedding Stress Free

Hotel Wedding Organization 101: Tips To Make Your Hotel Wedding Stress Free
A wedding is a time when two people share their commitment and love for one another. There’s many great places to have a wedding and a hotel is one of them. Luxury hotels offer so many advantages to couples and their guests. That’s why more and more people are opting to have their weddings in these grand hotels.
Weddings, although we would like them to, don’t always go off without a hitch. Generally, when a problem occurs it’s usually because inadequate planning and organization has taken place in the planning process. For those who are about to have a hotel wedding, this expert guide will give you an idea of what to look out for and how to make your day go off without any trouble. Let’s get started.

How To Make Your Day Trouble Free
When having a wedding in a luxury hotel, there’s a few things you need to look out for or keep in mind to make your day trouble free. These include:
·         Additional Costs – Some luxury hotels will have additional costs involved depending on what’s required for your day. Before signing any agreement and paying any money it’s a good idea to work through everything with the hotel manager to ensure additional costs won’t be incurred. For example, some luxury hotels may charge extra if your wedding goes longer than expected. It’s always good to know these things before your day comes around.
·         Call Your Hired Services The Day Before – The day before your wedding, call any hired services such as the photographer, venue, make-up artist, hairdresser etc. to make sure they’re all ready for the big day. This will give you time to have a back-up plan if someone isn’t ready.
·         Make Friends With The Staff Prior To Your Wedding – Many brides make the mistake of demanding services from hotel staff members. The problem with this is that it can leave everyone on edge during your day. Instead be friendly with the staff and the catering team as they have the power to negotiate whether you’ll receive any room upgrades or deals on the day. It will also make everyone relaxed on the day.
·         Ask For A Bar Package – Many people make the mistake of paying per consumption. The problem with this is that some of your guests love to drink more, which would cost you more. Instead ask the hotel manager whether they can offer a fixed price bar package for your day. This will allow you to pay the one price, even if the drinking gets a bit wild.

See Whether You Can Decorate The Night Before – For a more customised wedding, see whether you have the option of decorating the night before. Some luxury hotels may allow this which can also save you money. If they don’t allow self decoration, ask whether they can customise their decorating services to suit your needs. Also check to see how much extra this will cost.
Planning and executing your wedding day can be stressful. However, by preplanning and knowing some simple tips on how to make your luxury hotel wedding go off without any problems, you’ll be able to really enjoy your day. Are you having a hotel wedding?
