Hi everyone! My fiancé and I are pretty much throwing our own wedding but we are stuck on finding a location for an outdoor ceremony that can seat 200 guests. We already have a reception venue and we are hoping to continue the nautical/military or historical theme for the ceremony. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!

    Yes I’ve been finding it very hard to find a venue that will accommodate 200. Thank you very much Smiley smile

    I can imagine the outdoor wedding is your dream area, just hard to find one. Golf courses or yacht clubs may be some options though your 200 may be limited to a smaller amount based on the hall size. I do hope you find something in your count.

    Royal Hamilton yacht club was one of the first venues we looked into and they do not host wedding ceremony separately anymore as it is now an add on to their wedding packages. I’ve also looked into RBG and unfortunately they do not accommodate 200 people. LaSalle park would be a good one to look into for sure! I’m currently trying to figure out if we can even manage a wedding with 150 guests instead of 200 because I would absolutely love a wedding at the Lakeview, Which is max 150.

    Ahh ok and did you inquire with RHYC as well? I used to work there and they did host weddings and event separate from the convention centre. You could also try RBG or LaSalle park - doesn’t necessarily match the theme but near the water and not far from downtown!

    This was one of the first places we looked into and we found out that we can’t have just the ceremony as it is an add on to their wedding packages.

    The lawn at the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club? I’m fairly certain that you can book through RHYC itself or with the convention centre above it.

    Oh what a fantastic idea, I didn’t even think of those places. I will look into them! Thank you!

    Have you thought of Dundurn Castle’s grounds and garden or Battlefield? They are both pretty expansive outside, probably enough for 200. You’d have to contact the Conservation Authority to arrange something.
