Perks of a Downtown Wedding | Vue Columbus

Perks of a Downtown Wedding

A downtown wedding brings a lot of benefits right in the heart of your city! If you’re looking for cool venues, amazing photos and a guest-focused experience – then a downtown wedding is right up your alley.

Super Cool Spaces

When looking at venues for a downtown wedding, you’re going to find buildings with history that create hip settings for your ceremony and reception.

Industrial spaces common in downtown neighborhoods offer an urban, modern aesthetic that can serve as a standalone backdrop or become the perfect canvas for your vision

Stellar Photo Spots

When you plan a wedding in an urban location, you benefit from outstanding locations for photos.  Exposed brick, hip storefronts, and skyline views create outstanding photo opportunities for you, your bridal party and your guests!

At Vue Columbus, countless photo spots are just outside our door. In addition to our building’s beloved ivy wall, the walkable streets of the Brewery District and the charm of German Village are favorites for couples. We’re also close to the Scioto Mile, offering waterfront images and unbeatable views of the Columbus skyline, and Franklinton, which serves up a dose grit and urban flare.

Ideal for Guests

Hosting your wedding in a bustling downtown setting creates a memorable experience for guests. 

Hotel accommodations are plentiful in urban settings, as well as activities and places to explore during their stay. Our favorites include: The Arena District, Scioto Audubon Metro Park, and Short North – to name a few!

Another great perk is that it’s easy to find a space for rehearsal dinner. Since you’re already downtown for your wedding rehearsal, there are tons of nearby spots to host your rehearsal dinner! This makes commuting for your bridal party really easy, and takes out some of the headache of transportation from one wedding event to the next.

The Party Doesn’t Stop

When your reception ends, the party doesn’t have to stop! Many urban wedding venues are near nightlife, bars and entertainment so you and your guests can keep the good times rolling.

At Vue, we are right around the corner from fantastic late night spots like Brick American Kitchen, Rockmill Tavern, Shadowbox Live, High Beck Tavern and so many more. Plus, we’re just a quick ride away from the action in the Short North.

If you’re hesitant to look at downtown venues based on concerns about parking or traffic, address those right away when you tour a venue. A great wedding location will have these factors covered and will provide solutions to make your big day go smoothly. (At Vue Columbus we have a variety of surface lots and options for parking.)
