I used this site http://www.vitalchek.com/  before to get a new birth certificate when I applied for a passport.  You should be able to do the same.  I think it cost $12.50 but mine was for the state of Illinois so it might be different for Michigan.

Yeah, you can definitely order new ones.

In case it doesn’t come in time, you should probably talk together about a backup plan – if the wedding is small pushing it back a few days, or if not, going through with the wedding but signing the paperwork to make it legal (i.e. have a Justice of the Peace ceremony) after the honeymoon.

I agree with other OPs.  http://www.michigan.gov has all of the info you’ll need to order both of your birth certificates.  I haven’t had to order mine (I hope my parents still have mine…hmm…I should check that…), but I know that it can be done.  I’d stop in with the checklist from the website and everything you need ASAP to your city’s court house and get it squared away.  I don’t know how long it takes to get them in, but the sooner, the better!  Good luck.
