There are so many choices for your ceremony location in Milton. The list below is just getting started, so check back soon for more updates.
01. Churches and Chapels
A church wedding, traditionally in the bride's hometown, is perfect for a couple with the same or very similar religious affiliations and connections to their hometown. If one or both of you are Milton born-and-raised, then a Milton wedding can have a comforting at-home feel for you and everyone attending.
Approximately half of all wedding ceremonies take place in a church. If you'll be having a religious ceremony, contact your place of worship to see what your options are. For example, if you are having a Catholic wedding, then the ceremony must take place within a church. If your wedding is to take place inside a church or chapel, make sure to book the date before you book your reception.
02. Private Locations
Unique vs. Traditional
Make sure to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of your Milton wedding location options. A barn wedding, for example, can be a stunning experience, but it's a lot of heavy lifting to get ready. For outdoor weddings, keep in mind that you'll need an alternative in case of poor weather. Know what you're getting into before you commit to it. A traditional reception hall may be too one-size-fits-all for some, but on the other hand, remember that they're fully equipped to take care of the worst that your guests can throw at them, and most importantly, the next-day cleanup. This often makes a traditional banquet hall in Milton the most time- and cost-effective solution.
03. Residential Locations
If you have access to a grand home or have a particularly special connection to your childhood house, then a ceremony at a place of residence may work for you. The major hindrances on an at-home wedding are property limitations and the expenses involved in setup. Your guest list will have to be limited by the size of the Milton property that you hold the ceremony.
Brides and grooms are often misled to believe that an at-home ceremony and reception will be a more cost effective option while the unexpected expenses usually add up to exceed the cost of a basic hall. Consider that you'll need: tents, silverware, tables, chairs, linens, a rented floor, restrooms, parking, and much more. If cost is your highest concern then choose a reasonably priced hall and a small guest list, but if a residential Milton wedding is what's going to make your day really special, then you can make it happen.
Need To Know
Should you decide on an at-home wedding in Milton, contact the Town of Milton to determine the necessary permits and by-laws concerning noise and traffic ordinances, fire codes, and tent permits for your neighbourhood.
Also make sure to call your home insurance company. It will likely only cost you a few hundred dollars to get an additional umbrella policy for the day, but if anyone is injured you will be protected.
