As the capital city of Canada, Ottawa holds significant sway over the nation — but the city doesn’t let all that power go to its head. Instead, it presents residents with a bustling downtown filled with world-class cultural institutions, excellent restaurants, and a gorgeous river walk. While it’s hard to miss the gargantuan Parliament Hill overlooking the Ottawa River, Ottawa is about more than just politics. Locals appreciate the jumble of unique neighbourhoods surrounding the city and the beautiful tulips that spring to life each year after the end of the long winter.
Couples who are ready to announce their love in Ottawa have a large selection of wedding venues at their fingertips. The nearby towns of Gatineau and Chelsea offer additional options for those who want to escape the city and perhaps save a little money in the process.
You really don’t have to search far to find wonderful wedding venues in Ottawa. The city holds lots of big events and is filled with a wide variety of event spaces. Start your search by narrowing down the list. Consider what type of wedding you want.
How about a hotel wedding? Ottawa is home to world-class hotels with enough space for a huge wedding party. Many hotels overlook the Ottawa River, and all of them include highly experienced staff and venue coordinators who can offer robust wedding packages to make planning your big day as easy as a slice of wedding cake.
Speaking of cake, if you have a foodie soul, consider a restaurant wedding. Some of the best restaurants in the world have set up shop in Ottawa, and they offer an intimate setting for your smaller wedding. The best thing about a restaurant wedding is that the catering is taken care of. The second best thing is that decorating needs are minimal.
Don’t stop there. Ottawa also offers loft weddings, farm weddings, and much more. If your budget is tight, look into banquet halls, which can be more reasonably priced and allow you more freedom in designing your nuptials.
A venue tour isn’t just about seeing your Ottawa wedding venue up close and personal. It’s also your chance to ask your venue coordinator the important questions. For example, you’ll need to know what wedding packages the venue offers and whether you can bring your own vendors. Some venues have their own in-house vendors or want you to choose from a list of approved vendors.
You should also confirm that the venue is licenced to serve alcohol and ask about any decorating or noise restrictions. Finally, make sure the venue is handicap accessible if you have guests with special needs.
