Wedding FAQ

Can I Come & Take A Tour?
Yes! We’d love to show you around and discuss the details of your event. You can contact Kristin Baisden, Event Coordinator at (614) 782-2490 or use our Contact Us form. Tours are typically scheduled during business hours from 8am to 4:30pm, but evening or weekend arrangements can be made.
How Do I Book?
A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the room rental fee is required to hold a date for any day and time of the week. Deposit is due upon receipt of the Event Contract. Once the deposit, along with the signed contract, is received by the Aladdin Event Center, you are confirmed for the agreed reception date. The deposit is applied toward the final cost of the event.
What is the Service Fee?
20% applied to the final event balance. This fee covers staffing, setup and cleanup, and use of the kitchen facilities.
What Are the Payment Terms?
After the deposit, the remaining payment will be due 2 weeks prior to your event. We must have your final count within 3 weeks of your event, at which time you will be sent a final invoice.
Can I Bring In My Own Food?
The only outside food we allow is your wedding cake. All other outside food & beverage must be provided by one of our preferred caterers.
Can I Bring My Own Alcohol?
Sorry, but absolutely not. The Aladdin Event Center holds the liquor license. All alcohol must be purchased through Aladdin and must be served by Aladdin bartenders. Please note: your guests must be able to show valid ID as proof of age 21 in order to be served alcoholic beverages.
What Are the Minimums?
The Aladdin Event Center does not require any food or beverage minimums for your event.

Is There A Room Where I Can Get Ready?
Yes! The Bridal Suite is a great space where you and your girls can get ready for your Big Day! It’s also private, so you can store personal items during your event. Makeup artists and hairstylists love the LED lighting, as well as the large mirror, sinks and counter space. The private bathroom comes in handy too! We also have a separate Groom’s Room stocked with couches, full-length mirror and TV for the boys to watch the game.
Can We Come In Early to Decorate?
You are allowed access into the building 2 hours prior to your event. However, you can choose to rent the Ballroom on the day before your wedding at half price (subject to availability). We will have all of your tables & chairs set so the room will be ready for you or your vendors to decorate.
Do You Allow Candles?
Unfortunately, we do not due to multiple wax spills. Only battery-operated candles are allowed.
Do you Allow Animals?
With the exception of service animals, we do not allow animals.
Do You Allow Sparklers or Grand Exits?
Sparklers are permitted, but must be pre-approved and must be held outside. Bubbles are permitted as well, as long as they are kept outside. We do not allow confetti, rice, fake flower petals, hay or glitter.
