I’ve read all your posts and they have been helpful getting a list of vendors. I’m from NY and live in NY but my hubby to be is from Michigan with a big family all from there as well so we’re going to get married there.
We really wanted a wedding on a lake. We were originally thinking of renting out a mansion on a lake and having it there but I think planning a wedding from NY and having to do everything ourselves will be hard, and drive me crazy in the process.
Does anyone know any venues that are out on a lake? Preferrable by the detriot area. We’ll drive but will hopefully like to not drive too far. Any advice would be amazing. Our wedding will probably be in June 2011. HELP!

Have you thought of hiring a wedding coordinator? Or maybe asking his family since they live in the area? Wedding coordinator’s have different packages, so if you want to do everything except have to research venues, vendors, etc, then that can be what your wedding coordinator does. If that’s not in the budget, has anyone in his family got married in the past year or so that could help you? I planned my wedding in Toledo OH from Chicago, but his cousin who lives in Toledo and got married a few years ago, found my venue for the reception and ceremony. She was a monstrous help and I couldn’t have done it with out her.

GoIzzy, That place looks amazing!! Thanks for the referral!
My finance does have friends that got married recently and i’ve asked them, but the lake aspect is turning out harder then anticipated.
We’re working on the budget now so not sure we have room for a coordinator but if we do I’m definitely getting one. 🙂

One of my dearest friends got maried in Hartland, MI –
It is around an hour from “detroit”.
OR I have also been to a BEAUTIFUL weeding at the DYC (which is also on the water) – this is pretty much in Detroit.
What actual city is your future husband from?
Hope this helps. If you need other vendor information I would be very happy to help.

I’m getting married at Waldenwoods in August, so I’d be happy to talk to you about it and what my wedding package is like. I have some pictures from another wedding there too. Just send me a message 🙂
