The benefits of staying at your wedding venue the night before your big day

Wedding rings on a book

Though it’s sure to be one of the most joyful and memorable days of your life, the lead up to your wedding can also be one of the most stressful times too. In the morning, just hours before you say ‘I do’, there are often lots of last minute details to arrange, problems to solve and people to manage. In between giving directions to the caterers, checking the florist has arrived and chatting to guests, you’re expected to make yourself more beautiful than you’ve ever been before. Throw in a traffic jam or missed taxi, and your stress levels can skyrocket.

One of the best ways to calm your nerves and give yourself a little bit of extra time to relax on the day is to stay at your venue the night before. That way you won’t have to worry about booking transport on the day and you’ll have plenty of time to primp and preen until you get your look just right.

Extra time

Staying at your venue the night before your wedding will give some valuable extra time to prepare on the day. With so much to do, even an extra hour can be crucial, giving you a little bit of time to relax, have fun, and really enjoy the experience.

Lower stress levels

As The Knot says: “You’re probably not going to get a ton of sleep the night before your wedding”. However, waking up at your venue will help to lower your stress levels and make your wedding morning much more relaxing. As you’re already at your venue, you won’t have to worry about transportation or traffic, allowing you to focus on the important things like, hair, makeup and champagne.

Being on site to troubleshoot last minute problems

No matter how meticulously you’ve planned your wedding, there may be some last minute problems with guests or external suppliers to solve on the big day. If you’re already at the venue, you’ll be in a much better position to troubleshoot these issues that will inevitably come up. If you can’t solve the problem personally, you’ll be perfectly placed to find the venue manager or property owner and ask them to deal with it instead.

Enjoying every moment of your wedding

Last but definitely not least, staying at your wedding venue the night before your ceremony will allow you to enjoy every single moment of the event. From the second you wake up, you’ll be able to have fun with your bridesmaids, chat to guests and soak up the atmosphere of your chosen venue. If you plan to stay at the venue on your wedding night too, you won’t have to worry moving your bags or travelling to a hotel at the end of the night.

Choose a venue that can accommodate a large selection of guests and keep the party going well into the wee hours.
