Your big day all in one location
The wedding, the cocktail party, and the reception. You might be thinking, "what are the benefits of this?"
First and foremost - It's easier to plan everything! This gives you more control over the timing and the flow of the day, and it is definitely more convenient for your guests. In addition, this will most likely be kinder to your budget. You will only have one venue fee, and you won't have to worry about transportation between sites or filling dead time throughout the event. Another factor to consider is that your florals and decor can be utilized for your wedding and reception, which will cut down on cost.
When your wedding is at one location and your reception is at another, you always lose people along the way. Ideally, the venue you choose will have multiple sites for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception. If they don't, be sure to check with them before you book to ensure that they have adequate staff to handle a quick change over. Guests get antsy if the cocktail hour drags on for too long and, not to mention, your alcohol bill escalates!
Happy Wedding Planning!
