The location of a wedding has a big impact on the day, so ensuring that it is right for both you and your guests is crucial, as well as having a venue that you feel will reflect your personality and create your dream wedding. A city wedding will usually provide excellent transport links for all your friends and family, making lots of positive RSVP’s more likely. There will also be a multitude of affordable places to stay, or plenty of options for public transport for getting home after the party. Compare this to having a reception in the Welsh Hills seems a much more difficult prospect. This is likely to exclude a good number of guests, therefore compromising your enjoyment of the big day.
Some may argue that a wedding venue in a city location can rival the natural beauty found in the countryside locations. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage and get stunning wedding photos in and around the city wedding venue too, as well as the range of opportunities in the city itself.
Every couple wants their wedding to stand out, so having an element of uniqueness is vital to your choice. Although getting married in the countryside offers a number of unique choices, having your wedding in a city location can offer a huge variety of choices when it comes to unique surroundings. It’s a given that cities have a vast choice of hotels, manor houses, and exclusive halls, not to mention the beautiful churches if this is the route you wanted to take for a ceremony. As well as that you have a choice if warehouses, nightclubs and even zoos if you wanted to be really unique. If a unique and unusual wedding is your thing, nothing can beat the city.
Of course cost is a major make or break element of your perfect venue choice. City locations are renowned for being more expensive, but, as with anything, it depends what you want. Getting wed at Claridges with 500 guests is always going to be expensive. But, with fewer guests and more flexibility in your choices, there’s no reason you can’t get married on a budget, even in the biggest of cities.
