When I think about planning a "dream wedding" (and yes, I'm already married and don't plan on getting remarried, but be quiet, I still plan imaginary weddings...), location definitely plays a huge part in that.

I want someplace that is going to be accessible, that is going to fit the number of people I intend to invite, and, perhaps most importantly, I want it to be drop-dead gorgeous.

Beautiful Michigan Wedding Venues

When you think about it, this venue is going to be the backdrop for one of the most important days of your life. And it going to be memorialized forever in the pictures taken that night. So why not make it the most gorgeous venue possible, hmm?

Of course, an unlimited spending budget would help too... But let's pretend we're working with that kind of budget, and take a dive into 5 of the most stunning wedding venues across Michigan.

5. Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island

This place is absolutely gorgeous. There are unobstructed views of the Great Lakes, and it's right on the shore, making for breathtaking photos.

4. Leona Road in Grand Rapids

Leona Road is a fairly new venue space in Grand Rapids with a very cool history... it used to be a school! Now, it's a Scandinavian-inspired event space, perfect for having that low-key, gorgeous, and modern wedding.

3. Castle Farms in Charlevoix

Dude, this place is a literal castle... enough said.

2. The Horticulture Gardens of Michigan State University in East Lansing

The Michigan State University Horticultural Gardens are absolutely breathtaking to behold. And what's cool is that there are both indoor and outdoor spaces available, including this gorgeous atrium area.

1. The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn

The Henry Ford Museum has dedicated event spaces, like Lovett Hall, that are absolutely gorgeous. Or, you could even have your event inside the museum itself!

Return to Boblo Island! Stay at This Stunning Airbnb on the Historic Island

Boblo Island located just above the mouth of the Detroit River, was a popular amusement park that welcomed guests from Michigan and the shores of Canada from 1898 until its closure on September 30, 1993. There's new life on the island, rebranded Bois Blanc, with beautiful homes that have the nostalgic side of many wishing for a glance into Boblo now. Well, here's your chance.
Today residents and visitors are now welcomed to Bois Blanc Canada via the under five-minute car ferry ride from Amherstburg, Ontario. Aside from those who live there, and their guests, not many have had a chance to return to Boblo Island...until now.
There is only one Airbnb available to rent and the 3 bedroom and 3 bathroom home is stunning. Renting for around $246 a night, your inner child may need a little trip to Boblo Island.
