All the statistics show that many more people in the UK are choosing to get married in pubs or restaurants. And there are so many reasons why. First, laid-back couples find pubs or restaurants to be the ideal wedding venue because they offer a lot of character without stuffiness. Second, catering is so straightforward if you’re hiring a venue which spends its whole time catering and whose menu you already really enjoy. Third, pubs or restaurant wedding venues are also used to offering a high level of service which makes catering to a wedding party a doddle.
But there are other less obvious reasons that people get married in pubs or restaurants – there’s something about the great British institutions that makes them particularly well-suited to a happy wedding party. They are warm and friendly and offer a chance to relax and kick back once the formal ceremony is over, making them the perfect location in which to go from vows to toasts.
