Asian wedding venues and Indian wedding venues are plenty in number in number across the UK and certainly vary by type. For example, some Asian brides and grooms look for the classic hotel, with function suite and banqueting suite along with rooms on-site so that their guests can easily make a weekend of the special occasion. Country hotels and venues, however, are not the sole type of venues that are suitable for Asian weddings. for instance, some brides and grooms prefer to have their Asian wedding in historic museums or other places of interest - as long as large numbers of guests cabn be accommodated for the main wedding, and there are hotels and guest houses in the near vicinity, then there is no restriction on the type of venue that are suitable for Asian weddings. In essence, the world is your oyster!
Apart from the actual size and type of Asian wedding venue, what is important? The answer to this question lies in what is important to you, and what do you think will be important to your guests. It's true to say that many brides and grooms have ideas about how they want their Asian wedding to look and feel, and the best Asian wedding venues in the UK ensure that they work with the bride and groom to achieve this. This means listening to the couple to find out their likes and dislikes, their preferences and learn about their individual styling. No-one wants to be dicated to in terms of what cutlery, crockery, furniture, drapes, mandap and other elements of an Asian wedding they are 'allowed' to have at a venue - more so, the best wedding venues will offer the brides and grooms a range of different options, often from outside suppliers such as The RAAJ, for example, to bring them the best of all worlds - this way, the bride and groom get to hold their wedding at the venue of their choice and can then style it according to their own preferences. Yes, many Indian wedding venues can offer a particular style of furniture, mandap, cutlery and crockery, for example, but this isn't for everyone, and so it's important to ensure that your venue offers you everything that you want - don't settle for second best! Ultimately, your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and you deserve everything to your 100% satisfaction.
With suppliers such as The RAAJ working with the best Asian wedding venues around the country, this means that you are able to choose from a multitude of different ranges when it comes to mandap hire, wedding decor and even Asian wedding caterers as you can design your own menu. Individuality costs nothing, and the best Asian weddings are those with the special personal touches that are unique to the bride, the groom and their families - after all, it is this attention to detail which provides the most memorable occasions.
Choose your Asian wedding venue wisely and always make sure you ask the right questions. Yes they might have the size of venue you need, but always think about how you will style your event and whether they are able to accommodate your requirements - the best ones most certainly will.
