Outdoor Ceremony Bind!! PLEASE HELP!

I REALLY WANT an outdoor wedding! Except I am running into some issues. #1 I am on a budget and the locations I have checked out do NOT have a back up plan. (i.e local & county parks) #2 My fiance has proudly pointed out that for the last 2 years it has rained on our planned wedding day. He is NOT a fan of an outdoor wedding.

So w/all the above said, any ideas of locations that are inexpensive, has a back up plan & something my fiance wont complain about??

I am up for anything in Macomb or Oakland Counties.
We are expecting around 150 guests for the ceremony.

Our original location was going to be George George park in Clinton Twp., until they said we could not use their pavillion as a back up plan.  :-(

    Take a look at Canterbury Village...they have a gazebo if you want an ourdoor wedding, and they also have a chapel, which is gorgeous and I recommend:)

    We are getting married at the Greystone Golf & Banquet center. It's really nice and on a lake. Ceremony site is 700. Rain plan is to have it indoors right there, which is where we are having our reception. they have very good packages. We are getting A LOT for our money and Maggie (the lady who sets everything up) is amazing!

    <div>I was also going to suggest Greystone! My fiance and I are having our ceremony and reception there! LOVE Maggie, she is wonderful to work with. The food is also AMAZING. We are very excited to have our wedding there. The ceremony site is beautiful with the lake as the back drop. You should definitely check this venue out.</div>

    My wedding was at Greystone last year. Maggie and Jerry are amazing to work with, the ceremony site is gorgeous and you can always move the ceremony inside if needed. I can't say enough great things about greystone. have full vendor reviews at the link below! I also have tons of pics to share :)  Good luck!
