Why choose our Simply Wed package?

Time

We have already done the heavy lifting for you by pre-selecting some of the best pros in the Ottawa wedding industry. This is perfect for the couple that doesn’t have the time to dive into the full planning process.

Cost

We offer two wedding time slots on each date. Weddings on the same date share the cost of the venue, the vendors, and the décor which reduces the cost of each wedding by more than half.

Environment

Simply Wed weddings have a lower carbon footprint than a traditional wedding. We also strive to keep travel to a minimum and to source florals and other materials locally where possible.

Design

Simply Wed Weddings are thoughtfully curated and intentional designed by us for you. We are inspired by classic romance, lush garden-style florals, and timeless elegance.
