5 Reasons to have your Wedding at a 5-Star Resort

In 2013, only 33% of couples chose to tie the knot in a religious location which means that an overwhelming number of couples rented out banquet halls, ballrooms, local parks, and other interesting locales to say “I do”. If you haven’t considered a top 5-star hotel resort as the spot to hold your wedding celebration, read below to learn why a resort hotel is an excellent choice.

Great Service

Needless to say, you can expect quality and professional service from a world-class resort and that sort of treatment is exactly what you would want for your wedding day. Resort staff are often ready and willing to help with wedding-related events such as providing guests with welcome bags.

On-Site Planning and Prep

Hotel staff are typically trained to handle large events such as weddings, galas, and conferences. They may offer large-scale ballrooms and various other on-site locations to hold events. Plus, resort hotels often have the necessary vendors on staff or have access to them through long-standing relationships. When you book, they assign an event coordinator to you who will take care of planning. You don’t have to shop around for a chef, cake baker, entertainment, florist, or decorator–the hotel provides everything you need!

Everyone is together

Many couples now host wedding weekends in which they have an itinerary of events scheduled to keep guests involved and having a great time. With everyone under the same roof, these other events are much easier to coordinate. In addition, many resorts feature shuttle services that you can use to transport guests back and forth.


A terrific benefit of hosting your wedding at a 5-star resort is the proximity to local attractions. This is especially convenient if you are incorporating other family-friendly events into the weekend such as an evening of miniature golf or sightseeing. Guests typically like choices and being located near attractions like popular restaurants and shopping malls gives them plenty to do!

5. Creature Comforts

Holding your wedding celebration at a premier resort location provides you and your guests with an experience like no other. For example, at Fredi & Sons, we offer our hotels a wide selection of spa-quality bathrobes and slippers from designers you know and trust. Your guests can relax and enjoy the event knowing that the luxurious comforts of home are available to them.

Slipper Styles for Those Who Love Comfort

Slippers are a luxury item, no doubt. They are only meant to be worn in the comfort of your home, or in our case, in the comfort of your delightful hotel room. Did you know that slippers have a remarkable history as well? From moccasins to Indian chappals, the slipper is a globally worn accessory that has been around for quite some time. Pop culture loves slippers too! From Dorothy’s Ruby Red slip-ons to Cinderella’s glass pair, slippers are lasting symbols of luxury and comfort. What kind of slippers are you looking for?

The Classic Open-Toe Slipper

Open-toe slippers are perfect for wearing right after a spa treatment or shower. They’re also suitable for warm, tropical weather if you have a balcony or outdoor deck. The design lets your feet dry quickly, and allows you to tend to your toes if needed. That includes clipping your nails, applying nail polish, or applying a lotion treatment on dry feet. Now let your feet dry, and relax!

Closed-Toe Slippers

Closed-toe slippers may fully cover the foot, or just the forefoot. Fredi & Sons offers a wide variety of these cozy styles, including waffle slippers, spandex-cuffed slippers, and even funky mop-tops. Closed-toe slippers will keep your feet warmer than open-toed slippers, and are great options during the fall and winter months when it’s time to start bundling up.

Foam Sole Slippers

Ah, what’s better than having a plush, foam slipper to sink into after a long day of work or travel? Deerfoam slippers are one of the most popular and recognizable brands on the market. With microfiber and knit fabrics, Deerfoams have a variety of styles and colors available at Fredi & Sons. You can even monogram your Deerfoams to your liking!

Stylized Slippers

Now it’s time to get a little more fancy. Looking for bright colors, embroidered logos, or metallic fabrics? Check out Isaac Mizrahi’s fun, fashionable duds. Mizrahi is an American fashion designer who has worked with powerhouse brands including Target, Liz Claiborne, and Bloogmingdale’s. They’re not your traditional white spa slippers, but they certainly convey a modern, trendy look.
