I’m so far out from a date, that I’m not even really posting here yet because I’m just not really full on into all the planning yet. I’m Beth, engaged to Mike. Currently living in Jackson, MI but I’m from Muskegon and that’s where the fam is, so that’s where we’ll be planning the wedding. Tentatively looking at summer 2011 at this point, the biggest hurdle right now being that I would like to be notably slimmer before walking down an eisle, and it’s going to take a bit of time before my best friend has graduated seminary and can officiate 🙂

I just moved to Western Michigan Grand Haven to be exact. We moved here because my bf is an air traffic controller and was sent to the Muskegon airport.

I am originally from Clarkston/Ortonville area of Michigan in between Flint and Detroit (about 45-50 mins to either). I am having my wedding back down there. We are not engaged yet but I am almost positive he has bought the ring and the waiting game has just switched gears. We have decided it will probably be Sept/Oct 2010.

Hey all!  I’m Carla.  We live in Kzoo but I work in Grand Rapids.  Not sure how much help I will be on here as our wedding is in the Riviera Maya and our at home party is going to be on the lake front.  But hi just the same.  LOL Laughing

Althought I’m more active on the Detroit board since that is where I live now and where we are planning the wedding, I still check in on my west side ladies!  I’m originally from Zeeland and I just LOVE western Michigan!

@semanthia: Grand Haven is a fantastic place to live!  Especially in the summer!

Hi everyone! I’m Heather, and I’m really more active on TheKnot, but came across this site today and decided to join. 🙂 I live in Ravenna, but Fiance lives in GR. We’ll be having our ceremony in GR and our reception in Ravenna. Our wedding date is 09/25/2010 and all we have accomplished so far are our venues.

Hi Everyone! I’m Kelly. My Fiance is from Zeeland and we met our freshman year of college at Kettering University.  During our school years we both Co-oped with Steelcase in GR so I moved over there from my home near Toledo.  I absolutely fell in love with the lakeshore area and we are now planning our wedding in Holland on July 31, 2010!

TheKnot boards can be very helpful! I’m on the GR board and there are a lot of postings, but it does get kind of slow at times. Everyone posts vendor reviews after their weddings, which can be very helpful. TheKnot boards are not just for brides with big budgets, I can assure you! I’m trying to keep my wedding $8,000 tops (it’s not working for me so far though, haha :()! Someone ALWAYS has suggestions to help you out!

Hi Everyone!!!!  My name is Rachel.  I am from the Grand Rapids area but currently live in Atlanta, GA.  I met my fiance (he is from New Jersey) and kindly talked him into having our wedding in GR.  Which is great because my mom helps out a ton with her living in the area.  I am still short a couple of vendors and was wondering if any bees would like to help?  I am currently looking for a place that makes great cakes at a reasonable price and a rental company that rents candleabras and such.  Thanks for all your help!!!!

@Rachel, you should try Events by I.Candy for candelabra rentals.  They are newer in GR so their website isn’t great, but they should be able to help you!

  • Wedding: May 2010

Hey everyone, I’m Tawny and my FI’s name is Matt. We were both born and raised in Grand Rapids and we’ve been engaged for a little over a year and a half now. Until two months ago there was still no actual wedding date in sight, so I called him when i was on break at work and told him that we were getting married next May no matter what.  And that was the best thing I could have done for the wedding. I struggled for so long to try and find a garden to have our wedding in, but all of the places that I loved were too far away. So we are getting married May 28, 2010 at Fallasburg Park in Lowell.

I am also looking for a place to rent candelabras and I’ll be sure to check out I Candy, thanks for that. Also, if anyone knows of anyone locally who is looking to sell anything for a candy buffet, I would love to hear about it!
