They say the best things in life are free, and, after a brief glance at your planning spreadsheet, you might be inclined to agree. However, venues know how much you’re investing in them, and sometimes they like to give a little back. Just consider Cheval The Edinburgh Grand, which is offering any couple who books with them before December a complimentary champagne afternoon tea to toast their upcoming nuptials. Just email and quote ‘TIETHEKNOT’ to claim.

Housed in the former headquarters of The Royal Bank of Scotland in St Andrews Square, the interiors are tasteful yet quirky, with luxurious finishes sure to put a smile on any couple’s face. Host a standing reception for up to 60 guests on the penthouse’s private terrace and enjoy spectacular views across the city, before heading down to The Games Room, the hotel’s dedicated events space, for a sit-down meal. For those revellers determined to keep the party going, there’s The Register Club, whose elegant features and cosy feel make it the ideal place to finish the night with a dram or two.
