Getting Married in Cincinnati? Check Out Some of Our Favorite Venues
Not sure where to begin planning your big day? Wedding planning is a big task, and many new brides-to-be can quickly become overwhelmed with getting the planning process started, especially if they do not have a lot of experience with weddings within their family or group of friends. The first thing you need to remember when embarking on the planning phase of your wedding is to relax. It may seem like a huge task, but it is a surmountable one. The first step you should take is getting all of your big choices out of the way. For example, one of the first steps you should take when planning your wedding is choosing your venue.
The venue you choose will have a great impact on the style of your wedding. For those who love outdoor venues and classical architecture, there is no better venue in Cincinnati than the Manor House Banquet Center. With a beautiful gazebo located among its finally kept gardens and a lovely indoor venue space, Manor House is perfect for spring and summer weddings. You can hold your ceremony outside, take pictures, and then move indoors for your reception. Staying in one location for your wedding will cut down on your stress significantly.
Another very popular reception venue located within the city limits of Cincinnati is The Phoenix. Unlike the Manor House Banquet Center, most couples that book The Phoenix only use the venue for the reception after the ceremony. This makes it an ideal location for those couples that choose to get married in a church. The grand stairs at the entrances, tall ceilings, and gorgeous windows lend themselves to providing a stunning space for photographs and create a wonderful ambience for your big night. The venue has a capacity of up to 400 people.
There are many benefits to hosting your wedding at a hotel. Many hotels have huge banquet halls where they host events for varying purposes, weddings included. Hotels tend to be well decorated, well staffed, and easily accessible. The greatest advantage to hosting your reception in a hotel is that you and your guests do not need to travel anywhere after the night is over. You can head right up to your hotel room without having to worry about finding a sober driver. Hotel weddings ensure that everyone out partying with you will stay safe and happy on your wedding day. One very popular hotel for weddings in Cincinnati is The Westin Cincinnati.
One major wedding trend that doesn’t seem to be disappearing any time soon is the rustic wedding. Couples are descending on rustic venues quickly, so if you want a rustic themed wedding you should hurry up and book the perfect venue right away. One of the most popular locations in the Cincinnati is Canopy Creek Farm. The gorgeous rehabbed barn can seat up to 250 people and also includes acres of outdoor space perfect for holding your ceremony and taking pictures. Letting the outdoors in is a key component to constructing the perfect rustic wedding, especially when the sun goes down and the stars come out.
Once you book your wedding venue, so many other elements of your wedding will start falling into place. Your venue will often give you a list of available dates to choose from. Sometimes venues even have lists of caterers and entertainers that are commonly used in a certain space. Taking care of the big choices first is an excellent way to start your wedding planning. You can get the biggest stressors out of the way quickly and make more time for focusing on minute details later. When choosing a venue, make sure that you have an idea of how many people will be attending and how much room you have in your budget.
