When looking at a map of Michigan, one thing immediately strikes you - just how much water there is within the state’s borders.
Well, you wouldn’t be the first to notice this. In fact, the state’s name is a derivation of the Ojibwe word for large water.
It is these stunning, crystal blue lakes which attract tourists from all over the world to Michigan. The state’s great lakes include Lake Michigan, Lake Superior, Lake Ontario, Lake Huron and Lake Erie.
As you can imagine, with such extensive bodies of water at its disposal, Michigan is in no short supply of waterside wedding venues. In Lake Michigan alone, there’s Port 393 in Holland, the Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, the Armour House at the Lake Forest Academy, and The Veranda at The Whitcomb.
Choosing a lake-side wedding was easy, narrowing down your venues is the hard part.
After your exploration of the state’s natural wonders (and namesake), make the bright lights of the city the next stop on your list.
Detroit is known as the birthplace of Motown music, and so you can expect big things from the city’s art and cultural scene. Must-see sights include everything from the beautiful Belle Isle park, to the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as the more alternative Heidelberg Project.
If you’re on the hunt for a Detroit wedding location, we simply have to suggest the Guardian Building. With its art deco interior and dazzling golden colour palette, this skyscraper is the final word in glamorous venues.
