Due to their combination of practicality and efficiency with a hint of elegance, hotels are a particularly popular choice as wedding locations.

Another ideal Northern Irish wedding location would have to be a stately home such as Rathmullan House or Glenmore Manor. They possess a variety of amazing characteristics that newly engaged couples look for in a venue with staff who will make your day complete. Northern Ireland has an unrivalled coastline, so this is another popular location as couples flock to the coast to say their I-dos and celebrate amongst their nearest and dearest.

Hiring a toastmaster in Northern Ireland is a personal decision for the couple to make but it's fair to say they will go a long way to making your day run smoothly. Some wedding venues may be able to advise you of toastmasters that have worked at their venue before and be familiar with the location. Its worth noting that toastmaster will be particularly useful if you are hiring a large venue or have lots of guests in attendance.

If you have guests traveling from afar and want them to have accommodation options nearby then consider holding your wedding at one of the many hotels in Northern Ireland. Most of your wedding guests will likely reserve a room at the venue if you're getting married there so they can stumble up to bed once the party is over. A major benefit of choosing a venue with lodging on-site at your wedding is that your guests may enjoy themselves without worrying about how they're going to get home or where they can find their hotel later in the evening. From Northern Ireland’s imposing castles and stately homes to the Chic hotels in the city center of Belfast you will not be short of options to ensure your guests are well looked after and get a great nights sleep. No matter where you choose to get married it’s worth doing your research and including some local information for your guests that might be traveling from out of town including taxi numbers and a range of accommodation choices at different price points.
