How To Choose Your Wedding Venue

Kanika Hotels, Weddings - July 5, 2017

The day he proposed has come and gone, you are excited about your new future together with the man you love and so the search for the perfect venue begins.  You are looking for the ideal place to organize your magical wedding. It’s a day that you’ve dreamed about since you were a little girl and now your dream is becoming a reality. Here at Kanika Hotels, we are always excited to see newbrides walk down the aisle. Every time Whitney Houston’s song I Will Always Love You starts playing, we have tears of joy, happiness and love in our eyes. It’s simply magnificent to watch a couple in love share their love together.

The first thing you need to think about is your vision for your wedding venue. As Chrystalla Savva, our wedding coordinator at the Alexander The Great Beach Hotel says you have to decide what type of wedding yo                                                                                                                                                           u want first; A private small wedding or a public wedding where you don’t mind some people walking by and being reminded of what true love means. This might be obvious, but look for venues that fit your vision and your aesthetics. You want your wedding to capture your heart and to be one of the most memorable days of your life.


If you are researching your wedding venue online, Chrystalla highly recommends that you visit the venue before booking it. You can fly to Cyprus for a weekend break and stay at one of Kanika Hotels & Resorts. You have to keep in mind your guest list as well. How many guests are you going to invite? This will save you a lot of time when carrying out your wedding venue research in Cyprus. Once you have an approximate number you will invite, consider your guests’ experiences. Ask your wedding coordinator how many people can fit comfortably in your wedding venue.

You can take inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram wedding pictures but you have to stay true to yourself. It’s very important to ask yourselves as a couple what feels right to you aesthetically and design wise. We can all get carried away with Pinterest and think that we like a certain style but it’s not true to our own identity. This will be the best day of your life where you share your eternal love, everything must be you on that day. Everything must be about you on that day. Everything starts with the music playlist at your wedding; is it going to be Celine Dion’s I Will Always Love You and John Legends All of Me or is it going to be Top Gun’s Take My Breath Away on repeat? If it’s going to be all of you then make it your motto.

What about the wedding date? Have a conversation with your partner about the date you want to get married. Wedding dates can be significant because some couples choose the date they met or their parent’s anniversary date. Here at Kanika Hotels we have perfect wedding hotels around Cyprus, The Alexander The Great Beach Hotel in Paphos, Elias Beach Hotel in Limassol, the Olympic Lagoon Resort in Agia Napa and the Olympic Lagoon Resort in Paphos. You can check our availability and see which fits you best. Once you find available dates and book your wedding venue, it will be as if a huge weight has been lifted off your chest. Our experienced wedding coordinators will help you through the process.


Trusting your partner is common sense but what we want to mention is that you need to trust your wedding coordinator as well. It’s a very important aspect because you want your wedding coordinator to deliver on what they promised. Have a conversation with your wedding coordinator over the phone or in person and see if they understand what you truly want.

These are the essential points that we believe you should consider before booking your wedding venue.
