My girlfriend is getting married in Dayton in April of next year. They need a place to host their reception that will allow them to bring in their own alcohol and food. Catering would throw the budget.
I'm familiar with all of these type of places for Cincinnati, but not Dayton.
Of course, online searching is difficult because if someone is advertising for wedding spaces, they're generally out to make a buck. So, that typically makes them too expensive.
I was thinking that there may be an independent art gallery or that type of space that would rent out. They are responsive to lodges, but I cannot even find those on the cheap in that area. The closest I know of is in Sharon Woods, but I think that's too far out of Dayton than they'd like.
