With restaurants, you may also craft the menu to your tastes, especially if you and your partner have a favourite dish that you would like to celebrate share with your guests.

A restaurant wedding implies that your guest list will be relatively shorter, which means that you will be able to celebrate your big day surrounded by your closest friends and family. While an intimate ceremony may not be for everyone, some couples prefer it as it allows them to spend more time with their loved ones. As the atmosphere will be livelier with such a close-knit group, the wedding will surely be a memorable event.

In line with the freedom to make what you will of a restaurant venue in terms of decor, another perk of a restaurant wedding is that you can pick one that has a special meaning to you as a couple. It would be incredibly romantic to hold your wedding at the restaurant that you had your first date in or where the proposal took place or simply, one of the favourite restaurants that you both love. The sentimental value attached to the restaurant would make it an even more special choice for your wedding.
