If you haven't found the perfect Dayton Ohio wedding location or reception hall, here are few tips. The greater Dayton area is divided into several communities. Each of these communities has unique and interesting options for wedding venues, wedding locations and reception halls. The Downtown area, Fairborn, Miamisburg, Kettering, Huber Heights, Riverside, Piqua, Trotwood, Centerville, Vandalia, Beavercreek, West Carrollton, Tipp City and Troy areas each offer different style of facilities for Dayton weddings and receptions.
Like much of Ohio and Montgomery County, a large portion of the weddings ceremonies are held at the local churches and chapels. The area has a strong Catholic presence. Many of the Catholic and other style churches offer a venue for both the wedding and the reception. If you do not plan on serving alcohol at your reception, this can make your wedding plan much simpler. Many churches also offer a list of approved caterers and florists. By working with your preferred church, you can make your wedding plan simple and quick. You may also eliminate the need for a carriage or limousine as many couple leave the reception well after most of the guests, so renting a special carriage is pointless.
When making your overall weekend wedding plans, you may want to include visits to some of the local attraction for your out-of-town wedding guests. The Montgomery County Carillon Historical Park, Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm Dayton Art Institute, Americas Packard Museum, Dayton International Peace Museum, Cox Arboretum and Gardens, National Museum of the US Air Force, Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park, Montgomery County Historical Society, SunWatch Indian Village and the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery are just some of the museums and attractions that you could include in your overall wedding plan.
If you are searching for an outdoor wedding location, many of the local parks can host an event. Contact the local park authority to get more information about weddings. Of course, the least expensive and complex wedding is a civil ceremony at the local courthouse. In some cases, you may also get the officiant to travel to your preferred wedding location.
Since Dayton is home to Wright State University, Kettering College of Medical Arts, University of Dayton and Sinclair Community College, a portion of the weddings will be for student who find love in the classroom (or local club). Students should contact the campus administration to see what on-campus wedding venues are available. If the usual wedding facilities are not what the engage couple desires, then they can expand their search to more expensive off-campus options. One quick tip is to search the Ohio Institute of Photography and Technology for a cheap wedding photographer.
The Dayton area has a wide selection of both indoor / outdoor wedding venues and reception halls, so take your time and check out all the options.
