Detroit Wedding Venues
UPDATED JUNE 8, 2021
The complete guide to wedding venues in Detroit, from Downtown and Midtown, to Eastern Market and Belle Isle, along with the best locations for your Detroit engagement session and what to consider before booking your Detroit venue!
Do you want to get married in Detroit? If so, I think you've picked the perfect location! I may be biased as I've worked in Detroit for almost a decade and live right outside the city limits. I love the city; I love the architecture and heritage. I love the modern ambiance and vintage vibes all mixed into one beautiful space. Detroit has an extensive variety of wedding venues, from chic industrial and contemporary to historical and natural. This list of venues includes every type of venue, from large ballrooms to tiny gardens. Whether you're having a grand wedding or an intimate elopement, you'll find the right place! As there is such a variety, you'll find something that will fit within your budget, from affordable to luxurious, there is a Detroit venue for you!
As you're searching for your perfect Detroit wedding venue, consider how you want your wedding to feel. Do you imagine yourself overlooking downtown Detroit with a craft cocktail in your hand while you laugh with guests? Or can you picture yourself on the lawn of Belle Isle mingling with a beer in your hand? Do you see yourself wandering around Eastern Market with your lover during cocktail hour? Or do you imagine pulling up to your stunning venue in a vintage Packard? Do you desire to get married outside with the city sounds whispering in the background as you say I do with the sun shining down? Or do you envision yourself saying I do in a high rise with the sun setting behind the Detroit skyline?
Once you have a vision of how you want your wedding to feel, start looking through the websites to see what fits your style! For some tips on what to consider before booking your Detroit wedding venue, check out this blog.
