Don’t get side-tracked by other people’s expectations

This is a really important point to start with. After all, it’s your day and you need to make sure you’re making all the decisions that are right for you and your partner. There are lots of ways to have an incredible wedding, and as long as you do what you want to do, your guests are sure to have a good time too.

Do your research, speak to your adviser or wedding planner at our top hotel in Rochester, NY and ultimately, relax! You guys are the ones who will dictate your day. Also, what seems expensive to some won’t to others, so keep this in mind when making decisions based on other people’s expectations!

Length of the engagement – how long should it be?

A good way to save up for your Rochester wedding to help it become a more extravagant affair is to have a slightly longer engagement than you’d maybe originally planned. Don’t be afraid to have an engagement that lasts for a couple of years, as this will give you lots of time to plan your day and ensure you’ve got all the funds you need.

How many guests should you invite?

The expectation is that extravagance comes in numbers, so the more people you invite, the more lavish it will feel. However, this isn’t strictly true. In fact, weddings with 50 guests and below, for example, have a really intimate feel which can be a great way to make your Rochester wedding feel more expensive. So the answer is really, as many as you like!

How formal or informal should you go?

This is another key thing that will ultimately depend on the couple in question.

Rochester is an amazing place as it’s so metropolitan and interesting, so it will serve as the perfect backdrop regardless of how formal or informal you want your day to be. Really think about the type of couple you are and your relationship, to determine how far of either way you want to go.

What about the ceremony and reception locations?

For making your wedding feel extra lavish, this is the most important decision. Our wedding venues in Rochester, NY offer a true sense of luxury in the midst of a busy, bustling area that really will feel like your own little slice of wedding bliss. Our team will be on hand to help make all elements of your day – from the ceremony to the reception – as special as possible, so all you need to do is enjoy.

Does your wedding have a particular theme?

We can also help you with things like themes, which are especially popular in areas like Rochester where our brides and grooms are as individual as the surroundings. Do some research online to determine what sort of themes you like and we can help you deck out the venue in your desired design.
