Getting married in Ottawa? Here are some of the key points you need to know;

What is the best time of year for a wedding in Ottawa?

The most popular time to get married in one of the unique wedding venues in Ottawa changes slightly from year to year, but usually, couples choose to tie the knot in early fall and late summer. September is the most preferred month among these seasons, and it's for a good reason. First, the weather is neither too cold nor too hot to have a beautiful outdoor wedding. Second, most people come back from vacation. If you want to avoid the competition, you can also consider choosing August and September. This way, you can still benefit from the warm weather and book the venue and vendors you dream about without trouble. Lush green golf clubs, rustic barn venues, country estates, arboretums and wedding venues on the water are the highly sought-after locations for a perfect celebration at these times. They offer fantastic wedding photography opportunities with abundant light and fun-filled moments with your loved ones. Wouldn’t it be nice to say ‘I do’ while the birds are chirping and the wind gently breezes?

However, as tastes differ, some couples choose to have a winter wedding by creating a cozy atmosphere. Also, getting your dream venue and vendors is so much easier in the off-seasons, and you can find relatively cheap and affordable venues in winter. City Hall, art galleries, rowing clubs, museums, and wedding halls are among the best venues to have your celebration in colder months. Restaurants and wedding chapels are also ideal for couples looking for an intimate and small venue, and hotels are perfect for big weddings. Hotel venues provide all-inclusive wedding packages as well for your every need, from catering to videography for your Ottawa wedding.

What are the popular wedding styles in Ottawa?

You can find dozens of wedding venues in Ottawa that can accommodate the style you have in mind. However, the most popular theme is country weddings in this beautiful city. Farms, cottages and barns are the highly favoured country wedding venues. They are full of flavour and overflowing with charm. Embroidered, lace and vintage wedding dresses are perfect for these occasions that usually incorporate rustic wedding decor. Country brides might wear boots as their wedding shoes and use trucks as wedding transportation.

Another popular style is the rustic wedding that can take place in various settings such as vineyards, wineries, breweries and estates. A rustic wedding venue is usually adorned with unstructured wedding flowers and bouquets, reclaimed wood, and romantic string lights. Some couples even serve their wedding cake on slices of wood! The simplicity of country life

inspires this style, and it has references to the outdoors. For their wedding makeup, brides usually choose a mate and nude tones, and they prefer waves that look natural with floral hair clip accessories as their hairstyle. Also, giving creative wedding favours such as a personalized jar of homemade jam and pine cone fire starters will render your most special day as a memorable one!

Up next, ever-popular classic wedding. In this style, ceremonies are often performed in a small wedding chapel or magnificent churches. Receptions take place in elegant wedding halls, lush green golf courses, wedding venues on the water such as yacht clubs and more. Couples opting for relatively cheaper options consider small venues such as restaurants, museums and art galleries. For alfresco celebrations, greenhouses, gardens, and parks might be the other options. Tent rentals are also well-favoured among those looking for a more affordable venue that can combine indoors with outdoors. In this theme, couples prefer elegant wedding decor and rent classic wedding cars such as Rolls-Royce or Bentley.

These are not the only themes that you can choose from. Ottawa’s best wedding venues are waiting for you to turn them into the setting you have in mind. Working with a wedding planner might make your job much easier. You can check the annual Ottawa Wedding Awards, Wedding Show and Wedding Magazine to get some inspiration to realize your dream wedding!

Are there any major events in Ottawa that we should consider when planning our wedding?

Ottawa hosts many major events throughout the year that can make wedding planning a challenge, especially if you plan to have an outdoor wedding in one of the beautiful country barns, venues on the water or an elegant golf course. If you need to reserve hotel room blocks and transportation for your guests from afar, we recommend doing it as soon as possible since, in Summer, the city overflows with tourists and locals. A few Ottawa events to have on your radar when selecting a wedding date are the Tulip Festival in May, Fringe Festival in June, the Ottawa Bluesfest in July.

Should we consider any wedding venue locations near Ottawa?

Kingston, Cornwall, Saint-Jerome and Perth are just a few nearby attractions just outside of Ottawa. Each has its stunning landscapes for wedding photography opportunities or a well-rounded mix of venues from waterfront restaurants to lakefront gardens. The vibrant metropolis Montreal is just a two-hour drive from Ottawa, and together with Quebec, includes a long list of five-star hotel wedding venues, luxurious wedding halls and estates that may be worth a browse if you’re considering extending your Ottawa wedding venue search.

How much is a wedding venue in Ottawa?

It’s hard to give an exact amount on the average cost of a wedding venue in Ottawa since it changes according to several factors. The first one is the number of your guests. Since venues make their pricing with a per-person budget, the more guests you have, the pricier it becomes. For instance, if you plan to have a small and intimate wedding at a rustic barn, your expenses would be lower than a large wedding at a grand outdoor venue. This per-person budget is determined by the services you want to include in your wedding packages, such as wedding photography, videography, on-site planner, catering and flowers. Some facilities, such as hotel venues, offer all-inclusive wedding packages covering everything you could possibly need for your affair. While you can choose them, you can also build your wedding from scratch by booking vendors one by one, from wedding decorator and photographer to florist and caterer.

One of the other factors is the season in which you plan to have your big day. You can find relatively cheap, affordable and inexpensive venues and vendors in colder months by having a winter wedding. Since there's little demand for the wedding industry, you can save so much of your budget in the off-seasons.

How far in advance should you plan a wedding in Ottawa?

While some couples plan their wedding in Ottawa in no more than three months, others do it in nearly two years. Every wedding and every couple is completely different. Experts suggest starting wedding planning at least one year ahead. Start with creating your guest list and deciding on your theme with your partner. Then, determine your budget and set a date for your big day. Book your wedding officiant and vendors for your various needs, from wedding photography to catering. Send your wedding invitations and reserve hotel blocks for out-of-town guests. Attend to your wedding dress fittings, finalize all the details and smile!

What questions should I ask when looking for a wedding venue in Ottawa?

Once you’ve shortlisted the possible wedding venues in Ottawa where you can host your wedding, it's time to visit and ask some important questions. Get information about its availability for your preferred date(s), how many guests can be accommodated, and, if you want, options for hosting the ceremony and reception at the same location without using wedding transportation. If you plan to have an alfresco wedding in an outdoor venue, make sure they have a weather backup plan. Afterwards, find out what wedding packages and payment options are available. Don’t forget to review the copy of the contract before committing to your Ottawa wedding venue.
