There are a lot of reasons why Michigan is one of the best places in the country to tie the knot in. According to Elizabeth Edwards, editor for MyNorth Wedding: For Couple Who Love Up North, one probable reason for this is that the state has a great abundance of picturesque landscapes that can be used as memorable outdoor wedding backdrops. She also mentions some wedding trends that are expected to be chic in Michigan for 2014:

Michigan Wedding

“…Light suits are in for groomsmen and so are tea-length bridal gowns. Reception menus can range from filet mignon to stone-fired pizza and bbq. Bridesmaids’ dresses don’t need to match—but it’s cool if they do. Groomsmen’s suits don’t have to match, but there is still something pretty special about a party of tuxes!”

The right choice of clothes is in the hands of both the bride and groom, but the right food selection is something that the couple should plan for with the providers of the most reputable banquet halls in Michigan. Renowned establishments like Crystal Gardens have the requisite knowhow and experience to come up with a wedding menu that will not only be a feast for the taste buds, but for the eyes as well. These wedding experts also know that a reception should be as enjoyable as possible, whether it is a formal dance, a small concert, or any other format the marrying couple wishes it to be.

While banquet hall providers can arrange for the nitty-gritties needed for the reception, the couple should work closely with them to ensure that the aesthetics of the banquet hall match the overall theme of the wedding. Budget is, of course, a main consideration when planning a wedding reception, but should not be a hindrance in coming up with a memorable event. Elegant cheap banquet halls in Michigan can provide the bride and groom with a beautiful venue and the amenities they will need for an affordable, but unforgettable wedding.
