Ceremony Site

We are looking for a reasonably priced (around $1K) ceremony site in Metro Detroit. The site would need to hold 250 people. We have our own officiant and would like to have the ceremony somewhere other than a church. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to the Detroit board Byrdstep!

    I peeked at your bio and see you have listed March 2012 as your anticipated wedding date. Not sure if that is set in stone or not. It may be difficult to find a location to hold just a ceremony for 250 people, assuming you want it indoors, other than a banquet hall where the reception will be as well. If your date is flexible and you can consider summer, there may be parks that cost about that much and can hold 250 people.

    I don't have any recommendations for you, but wanted to say welcome.

    To go off of what Sue said, I think you best bet would be to find a place that does ceremony and receptions in the same place.  You can't really do an outdoor wedding in March.  You can check the vendor stickies at the top of the board and look for girls who have the same vendor listed for ceremony and reception.

    The chapel they have is really nice.  My FI and I thought about going here but ended up going to another location.  If you get married in the chapel there  the area where you would get ready is amazing (as far as getting ready goes).  The mirrors are set up like most backstage mirrors with tons of lights around it to make sure your makeup looks perfect.  Also, there is a lot of room so if you have a larger number of BMs you can all get ready together.  If I remember right this site was $600 unless you also have your ceremony there.

    I have picked Canterbury Village/Kings Court Castle.
    The chapel is beautiful, inside and out.
    They have three reception rooms, from 125 to 225 and all are beautiful.
    Very reasonable in cost.
