A popular tourist attraction, Northern Michigan boasts rich scenery, from the shores of Lake Michigan to the banks of Lake Huron. In this region, couples will find many charming wedding venues that can provide a beautiful backdrop for their special day.
Couples looking for a true taste of Northern Michigan for their special day will be spoiled for choice. For rural celebrations, couples can enjoy romantic castles in Charlevoix, quaint inns on Mackinac Island, and an array of lakeside locations along the region’s west coast. For those seeking a more urban atmosphere, Traverse City offers a combination of beachfront resorts, grand hotels, and charming barn venues to choose from. Known stateside as the Cherry Capital of the World, this destination boasts close proximity to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, which is a popular outdoor wedding ceremony spot. For a more refined setting, the Traverse Wine Coast provides an array of winery wedding venues to host sophisticated celebrations.
Wedding venues in Northern Michigan typically start at $3,000. Prices depend on the location and the time of year venues are booked. For example, Traverse City is highly popular in early July due to its Cherry Festival, so venues are likely to be more expensive at this time.
While Traverse City may be known for its wine, Grand Rapids is known for its love of craft beer. Named by USA Today as the Craft Beverage Capital of the United States, Grand Rapids offers a diverse urban environment for couples to stage their special day. The state’s second-largest city offers a variety of versatile conference-center venues to choose. Elegant hotels, golf club resorts, and loft venues are also popular here.
Northern Michigan experiences all four seasons to the extreme. Here, summers are hot but are offset by cooling lake breezes. Winters regularly bring freezing temperatures and snowfall. Spring and fall weddings are the most popular in Northern Michigan as the climate is milder, which is favorable for both indoor and outdoor occasions.
For weddings based in and around Traverse City, consider some cherry-themed favors as a nod to the Tart Cherry Capital.
Late spring to early fall is an excellent time, both for the pleasant weather and the variety of festivals and events that are held throughout the region.
The Gerald R. Ford International airport is located just a few miles outside of Grand Rapids and offers a perfect jumping-off point for those wishing to visit Michigan.
