Love is in the air!

Tis' the season for love and wedding destinations in West Michigan are in Style this season!

Your celebration of love begins …From a rustic lighthouse on the golden sugar sands of the Great Lakes, to a one-of-a-kind vantage point of the great outdoors that only West Michigan can bring… there is no place more beautiful to commemorate your special day.

A Spring wedding can lead you across the fresh greens of a pristine golf course or perhaps to a shabby-chic park-like setting.  The fresh spring breeze will add to the moment and West Michigan has the perfect backdrop for spring wedding photos. Blend green hydrangeas and bold colors to make any floral bouquet stand out. Current popular color trends for Spring Weddings are: mint and grass greens, bright and lemon yellows, mango orange, bubble gum pinks, dried lavender and deep ocean blue.  

If you have your heart set on a Summer wedding, West Michigan is the ideal location for you. With the longest freshwater shoreline in the world and over 100 lighthouses, Michigan can create that intimate lakeside wedding that you have been dreaming of. West Michigan venues set on the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan and numerous inland lakes offer breathtaking sunsets.  Current popular color trends:  ballerina pink, 5th avenue blue, watermelon, marine blue, and seafoam and mint green.

Fall is West Michigan’s most popular wedding season!  Colors of red, orange, yellow and green are around every corner. Bring your guests to a vineyard, or one of the tasteful apple orchards and draw in some of the state apple blossoms for your tables’ focal point.  The fresh breeze of West Michigan will enhance the experience of a fall wedding. Current popular color trends: thai purple (plum), mango orange, curry yellow and reds, lime and apple greens.

Perhaps Winter is your season. West Michigan can arrange your picturesque winter wonderland at resorts and venues that can offer spa services and such activities as skiing and ice skating. The gentle rolling snow hills can be the flawless framework for your wedding memories. Incorporate romance and fun with a sleigh ride for two!  Current popular color trends for Winter Weddings are: fire engine red, blues of all colors, merlot wine, sterling silver and gold leaf.

Lakeside, countryside or urbanside, YOU choose. West Michigan venues and decorators are very well versed in settings of all styles. The current vintage look is on the rise and will match with any of the seasons.  Along with the current trend of vintage, consider classic, beach, country, and garden park to name a few.

“Love is a Great Beautifier,” quotes Louisa May Alcott.  West Michigan seasons only enhance the endless possibilities for your destination wedding.
