Now that our new socially distanced reality is starting to sink in, you may be looking to plan a small wedding instead of the big, blow out style wedding you had been dreaming about. While there may still be a big party sometime in the future when circumstances allow, we understand that you might not want to wait to start your life together as a married couple. After all, that was the ultimate goal when planning a wedding in the first place, right?
A small, intimate celebration might be the perfect way to make this transition to married life. Thankfully, there are some really wonderful spots in Ohio for you and your immediate family to safely gather to mark the occasion.
Here are the top ten venues that we would suggest you look into if you are thinking of planning a small wedding. We know that restrictions on gatherings are likely to change many times in the coming months so it’s hard to say which venues would be able to help you at any particular time. That being said, this list would be a great place to start.
Keep in mind that Saturdays are by far the most in-demand day of the week. You can increase the chances of availability and flexibility with pricing if you consider any day of the week other than Saturdays.
