My Fiance and are trying to find venues for our ceremony/reception in or around Columbus, OH that don’t break the bank. I was wondering if Ohio brides here could give me suggestions on venues they looked at, been to as a guest, or got married. I am a graduate student so I’m trying not to go overboard with budget – 100 people for about $6,000! I appreciate any help y’all can give 🙂

I have no clue if you’re affiliated with a church, but I just this weekend went to a wedding at New Life Community Church in Canal Winchester. It was a budget wedding and the space was BEAUTIFUL. It required very little decoration. The reception was held in the sanctuary which had low-key lighting, high ceilings, and no pews (they use regular chairs for worship so they were all able to be cleared out) and all the bride did was put 3 votive candles and some Eucalyptus branches on the tables and it looked super classy.

thank you! That isn’t far from us at all so I will have to look into it!

Is that $6,000 budget for the venue or for the entire wedding (DJ, decorations, food, etc.)? If it’s just for the venue, take a gander at Brookside Farms in Louisville, OH. You can how gorgeous it is for weddings in a quick Google search. Amaaazing.

I can’t speak to the money aspect but here are a few places friends/family have gone for weddings in the last couple of years:
Darby House (a Cameron Mitchell property I think, they have indoor and outdoor venue space).
Station 67 in downtown.
And Athletic Club of Columbus
Hope this helps!

When I lived in Columbus, I saw a lot of weddings at various parks. Sharon Woods has hosted some beautiful ones, that topiary park by the Main Library downtown is a beautiful setting – the downside, of course, is that passing bikers like me will occasionally pass by in the background. Still, the pavilion rentals are usually very, very reasonable and the settings are just gorgeous. There are two things I miss about Columbus: the food and the parks!

thanks! That $6k is for venue and food. We have the rest budgeted out!

I’m originally from Columbus, but didn’t get married there, much to my mother’s dismay. She did some venue research for me at the time, and one place she really liked that was very affordable was the Clintonville Women’s Club.

Amelita Mirolo Barn is nice! They have indoor and outdoor space. We were going to use the outdoor space for the ceremony and the indoor space for the reception, but we ended up having to move our ceremony/reception to my hometown due to family health issues. If you happen to have an Upper Arlington address (or know someone who does) you can get it for an even cheaper rate.
