Castle wedding is a fairytale wedding for sure. It can definitely be an amazing experience for the couple. However, while planning a castle wedding, some important tips need to be kept in mind.
1. Choose the castle with historic value
When you decide to get married in a Castle, the first thing to decide is the castle. If you have already decided the city or country, this job will be easier as there will be a few castles to select from. For example, if you decide to get married in Denmark, there are some historic castles to choose from. The best one is the Kronborg Castle as it holds not only historic value, but it is also famous because of its serene views and association with the world-famous novel of Shakespeare, Hamlet.
Across the world, there are many castles. Some of them still hold historic value and some of them are converted into hotels. Some are ancients and some are built in the modern world to give the feel of a historic castle. When you choose to have a marriage in a castle, it is recommended to choose the castle with historic value and not converted into a hotel.
2. Book a chamber or area and not the whole castle
The castle would be huge and for a destination wedding, you will not need the whole castle. In fact, not all castles and their all chambers can be rented for the whole day. However, in every castle, some chambers or areas are made available for couples who choose to get married in a castle in a royal setup. For example, if you choose to have a wedding at Kronborg Castle, it has five chambers, rooftop, courtyard, and other beautiful places. You can choose any of them when getting married in Denmark at Kronborg Castle. This will not only reduce expenses as you are not paying to book the whole castle, but it will also reduce stress related to arranging a wedding ceremony. For example, if you have guests to attend your destination wedding, you will need to be sure that nobody harms the structure or anything else in the castle.
3. Castle only for the marriage ceremony
In some castles, couples can arrange a marriage ceremony, reception, dinner, and even accommodation. Even if a castle has all these facilities for the couple, it is recommended to book castle only to hold a marriage ceremony. You can get married as per the civil marriage law or as per your custom in the castle, depending on the country and castle. You can check this with your wedding planner while booking a castle for the wedding ceremony.
These are the top three tips you must keep in mind when you decide to get married in a castle. The most important thing is to hire a destination wedding planner, so all arrangements are done by the planner and you can simply enjoy the wedding.
