Are you looking for the best Cleveland wedding ideas ever? You’ll find them here! Emma here and, all I gotta say is, Whattup, TWO ONE SIX! It’s time for our new CITYSERIES: last week, we took you to Chicago; this week, we’re going to the city that rocks… Cleveland, Ohio!
By the way, how awesome is this area code art? It’s by DaisyDesignsCLE and we love it!
Home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland is a beautiful place to live, visit, shop, dine, explore, and yes, GET MARRIED! It is known as a major city in Ohio with a stunning skyline and bustling downtown city life.
The city of Cleveland is located on the southern shore of Lake Erie and was founded in 1796 near the Cuyahoga River. Cleveland is known for many things, including its beautiful rivers, lake shore, canals, and railroad lines. Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (I’ve been there, it’s awesome, you definitely have to go!) and has many nicknames, including being known as “The Forest City”.
If you’re a local, you probably have a 216 area code. You root, root for the home team(s) including the Cleveland Indians (MLB), Cleveland Browns (NFL), and the Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA). Chances are you like to visit the Cleveland Metroparks system, as well as Washington Park, Brookside Park, and parts of the Rocky River, all known for their stunning natural landscapes.
And of course, if you’re a local you’re officially known as a “Clevelander” and you’re probably awesome. :)
Today we’re helping you plan a Cleveland inspired wedding with the coolest and most creative (handmade!) Cleveland wedding ideas. We have everything you need to plan your Ohio wedding including Cleveland wedding invitations, save the dates, favors, decorations, and more. We even found some really great Cleveland gifts to give to locals and non-locals alike!
They say Cleveland rocks… and we think this list totally proves it. Let’s get planning!
PRO TIP: As with all of our round-ups, the key to planning a beautiful themed wedding is to use just a few of your favorite touches throughout. A sign here, a coaster here, and a cake topper there; you get the idea. To keep your wedding looking elegant, don’t overwhelm your space with too many themed picks; just a few will do! ;)
Note: These finds are all HANDMADE by independent artists! When you buy, you’re supporting small business. Click on a photo or link underneath to buy / find out more details. Enjoy!
