I am planning my wedding in Western Michigan from the south. I am looking to have a destination wedding weekend within 1.5 hours of Grand Rapids for about 100 people. I love the idea of a destination wedding to an all-inclusive in Mexico/Jamaica, however budgets are tight with family members so that is a no-go.
I am hoping to find a site where the majority of my guests can stay. I like the idea of camps or cabins and outdoor/rustic venues versus banquet halls or hotel ballrooms.
I would also be flexible if there are any small towns where everyone could stay in one area and celebrate and possibly walk to the reception site (think Frankenmuth – tiny enough, but still has some stuff to do).
I have looked at a few places such as Bay Pointe Inn, Camp Newaygo, and Double JJ Ranch. There is also a ton of great stuff around Petosky and up north, however it is too far for friends to travel.
-fit 100 people
-within 1.5 hours from the Grand Rapids airport
