Wedding partySearching for a large self-catering holiday house to rent for a wedding reception?  Country Cottages Online can help you to find the best property to rent for your special day with our useful hints and tips.



Key Issues to consider when renting a large holiday house for a wedding or special event include:


House-Size and Catering Facilities

•    Does the house have large enough spaces for your guests to gather together?

•    Is there a function room or dining room where you can dine altogether (essential if you are planning a sit down meal).  Does the property have enough cutlery and crockery for your event?  Check the finer details with the owner prior to booking.

•    What is the maximum capacity for guests for the day? (It's essential to understand the limits on numbers and plan accordingly).

•    Are the kitchen facilities adequate?  Consider whether you're planning on doing your own catering or if you will be bringing catering in.  Are there enough ovens and fridges for your catering and numbers?  If you plan to bring catering in, discuss this with the property owner and caterer to ensure a successful wedding reception.


Garden Space and Size

•    Is the garden large enough for your event?

•    Do you need a marquee and do the owners permit a marquee(s) within the grounds?

•    Are there romantic lights within the grounds or can these be put up?


Parking Facilities

•    How many cars is parking available for?  Is there additional parking nearby if required?

The points listed above are intended to give you some ideas about the sort of things to consider when renting a large country house or a big cottage for a wedding reception.  Always check before booking that the property doesn't have restrictions on noisy parties late at night or any other such restrictions.
