The benefits of staying over at your wedding venue

Booking your wedding night accommodation is an important task to tick off your to-do list. There are a variety of factors to consider when it comes to choosing a place. As Brides explains, comfort and proximity are both important to bear in mind:

“Delaying the honeymoon? Then going the extra mile to find the perfect place to stay on your wedding night may not be such a bad idea. Just make sure you’re not traveling a ton of extra miles just to get to your hotel! Kristine Cholakian Cooke, Event planner and owner of Simply Charming Socials, suggests choosing a relaxing, convenient, and special option. ‘Remember that you will be tired after such a long day, so opt to stay somewhere close enough to reach easily after your send-off, and if you can afford it always splurge for a big, comfy bed,’ she advises.”


The easiest way to test a place is to stay over at your potential wedding venue. Here at Country House Weddings, all of our venues feature accommodation for both the bride and groom, and even a few lucky wedding guests. In this blog post, we explore the plus points of staying over in one of our bridal suites on your wedding night.

Not too far to travel for bed

At the end of a long, enjoyable and utterly exhausting wedding day, the last thing you want to do is hop into a car and travel to your wedding night accommodation. By staying on-site at your wedding venue you don’t have to travel too far to find your bed. The short distance between wedding reception and the duvet makes staying in a bridal suite on-site one of the most popular options for newlywed couples looking to enjoy their first night together.

As well as saving time by staying over at your wedding venue, you also save money. After all, there’s no need to shell out for transport from your wedding venue to your wedding night accommodation.

A private sanctuary for just the two of you

There may be a few moments on your wedding day when you and your partner will be longing for a time out from the excitement of your celebrations. Staying over means you have access to your own private sanctuary throughout the evening and time to digest the goings-on of your special day.

In addition to this, staying on-site at your wedding venue means you can dance the night away with your guests. By staying over you can ultimately strike the right balance between spending time with your guests on your wedding day and stealing a few moments together as newlyweds.

Overnight stay

Your guests can stay too

Exploring the accommodation options available to you is one of the top things to ask your wedding venue about during your viewing. Although you will have your own needs in mind, catering to close guests is also worth pursuing. Even if the guests you choose to stay on-site with you are paying for their own accommodation, being aware of what’s available and associated rates is essential.
