If you're planning that Big Day you want everything to be just right. Practically marinated in romance, Dorset is the ideal county for your wedding. Packing some of the most idyllic countryside and dramatic coastlines in England, it's the perfect backdrop - all you need now is the venue. Fortunately, Dorset has a growing number of wedding hotels, from characterful guest houses, to spectacular country lodges and stunning hotels.
Choosing to use a Dorset wedding hotel as the venue to your ceremony has plenty of advantages to it. One of the main headaches for couples-to-be is sorting out all the little details and touches that make the day memorable and atmospheric. Handing over the reins to a wedding hotel means that those are all taken care of. Some hotels, such as the Connaught Lodge, in Bournemouth, offer packages that ensure all the boxes are ticked, leaving you to enjoy your wedding.
With wedding hotels in Dorset coming in a variety of shapes and sizes, there's plenty of room for you to decide the type of wedding you want. The Green Room hotel, for example, offers an elegant and classy backdrop to your day, being set in the grounds of a chic, Victorian villa. However, if you prefer something more rustically romantic, the Kingston Country Lodge hotel offers timbered beams and whitewashed walls and a 120-year-old barn.
Another benefit of hiring a wedding hotel is that you have all those people important to you, on-site. Many wedding celebrations have been cut short by the simple fact that guests have to leave to get back to their lodgings, perhaps by a certain time. However, with everyone in the same place, the party can go on into the night. However, this doesn't have to mean that the happy couple won't get any privacy on their first night as husband and wife: most wedding hotels, such as the beachside Haven Hotel, in Poole, have bridal suites tucked away from the rest of the building.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. Booking a wedding hotel in Dorset can help to ensure that it goes without a hitch.
