I really want to have an outdoor wedding and was interested in the Cleveland Botanical Gardens. Does anyone know how much it is to have a reception there. I know that the ceremony is 1500 for two hours. I also wanted to know if anyone had any other outdoor venues that resemble the Cleveland Botanical Garden.

How many people? We are having ours at Lantern Court at the Holden Arboretum, but the Arboretum has a couple other locations for ceremony only and they can accommodate reception as well. Plus they have been fantastic to work with!

We are having our ceremony at the Hanna Courtyard Garden at the Western Reserve Historical Society. I believe you can have your reception there as well for maybe up to 200 people. I think they are a little less expensive than the Botanical Gardens because the Botanical Gardens requires you to use their exclusive caterer.

If your guestlist is small, there's the Cultural Gardens (Hungarian & Greek gardens are very pretty). The fee for a wedding is under $200.

The rental fee includes outdoor ceremony space, an indoor rain location, use of the bridal room, one 45-minute rehearsal
