When planning a wedding that’s a celebration of your journey together so far as well as a momentous way to mark this very special milestone, choosing the place where you’ll say “I do” and party with loved ones is no doubt a decision that sets the entire tone.
Traditionally the wedding ceremony and reception were held at different venues, whether you were opting for a religious or civil ceremony. More recently, however, the benefits of hosting the wedding ceremony and reception in a single location have shone through.
There are after all many benefits that go hand-in-hand with spending your whole wedding day in one place, here are just a few…
It’s the ultimate convenience
That journey from the ceremony venue to the reception can cause no end of logistical challenges for you, your wedding party and your guests.
Whether you plan to host a celebration based on these backyard wedding ideas or are organising a more elaborate winter wedding extravaganza, your event has to flow seamlessly. One way to achieve just that is by hosting it in a single venue.
With no need to navigate guests from one location to the next, the day can unfold effortlessly, ensuring a smooth and stress-free experience for everyone. The convenience of staying put in one location won’t be lost on elderly guests or those with mobility issues either. In fact, it’ll ensure the inclusive and enjoyable atmosphere that every marrying couple wants to exude.
It’s great for the wedding budget
Hosting your ceremony and reception in one venue can mean big savings. At Leez Priory, couples even get to take advantage of great value packages to make the cost of both the ceremony and reception a little more palatable!
You’ll also avoid the additional expense that comes with wedding transportation between venues. And, as Bridebook explains, these costs certainly add up:
“The average amount couples in the UK spend on wedding transport is £500. However, this figure can vary dramatically depending on a number of factors, such as the type of vehicle, the distance you’re travelling and the amount of time the vehicle is needed. In our ultimate wedding budget breakdown, we revealed that Brits spend an average of £19,184 on weddings, and transport can be a big part of these costs.”
It’s THE way to make the most of your day
By having everything in one place, you can really make the most of every part of the special day you’ve spent months or even years planning. There is after all no need to factor in travel time between locations, which paves the way for an extended and joyous celebration.
More time with your nearest and dearest ultimately translates to more cherished moments and memories that last far beyond your big day.
It’s a route to perfect harmony
Every venue provides something of a blank canvas to create the wedding day you’ve always dreamed of. Yet with two venues to decorate and ‘make your own’, you’ll certainly have your work cut out! By hosting your big day in one place you can ensure a more cohesive and harmonious theme from start to finish.
