Default where to get married

My fiance and I are looking for an affordable place to get married. We are looking for a place where we can have an outside wedding with the reception at the same location. We are looking in the oakland county area. If you have any ideas please let me know. Thanks!

You'll have to find your own court official, minister or other to do the ceremony outside of a church. Once that is done, you can get married just about anywhere you want and you can rent out one of the township halls, vfw's or county park halls to have your reception.

We got married at Depot Park and our reception was at Springfield Oaks. My good friend just got married two weeks ago and had the ceremony and reception at Indian Springs, which was also very nice. Both outdoor ceremonies.

Just an outdoor ceremony and inside reception, try White Lake Oaks. We just had ours there and it was great. The min. is like 100 on Sunday.

We have been checking the oaks parks, Lyon Oaks was the one she liked the most, but at about 10, and a 150 person minimum, it is a bit out of range.
She found a place on the East side today, call Myth or something like that. I'm not sure exactly what the name was, but it was a golf course over off 32 mile or somethign like that.
It was $38 per person, including dinner, drinks, gratuity, and all that jazz.

we want to have something nice and formal, but reasonably priced.
I just figured 10k on the hall, food, and bar would end up being 15k total.
I want to stay under 8k, since we are paying for all of it ourselves.

Have you tried Fox Hills? They had a great gazebo for the ceremony. The only thing that didn't like was the hall. I'm not sure how many you are going to invite, but we had like 140 and for that many the hall was going to be "L" shaped.

One thing to consider, unless you guys are highly religious, is get it officially done at the courthouse with just a pair of witnesses or some family members, then have a ceremony at another place where you can use anyone you choose to perform the ceremony. That way, you arent paying for the legality of the person marrying you to come to the event. Also, it is kinda nice knowing all the paperwork is all done and in order, one less thing to worry about on your nice day.

Can't help you as far as places in that area though, wrong side of the state.

If you're looking for someone to officiate the event, I have a pretty good suggestion for you. PM for details if you need them.

As for outside wedding and reception, look at some golf courses. Many of them have nice halls and nice outdoor places you can get married.

http://www.edgewoodcountryclub.org/ <-- I went to highschool with someone that overseas (or used to) most of their events (not janet wheeler who is listed on the wedding link)

http://www.victoriaweddingchapel.com/ <--- right on the lake on dixie highway in waterford. it would however require a trip to another location for the actual reception.

this one isn't around Oakland County, but rather down at the edge of Saline, West of Ann Arbor - back in August 1995 we got married here in an outdoor ceremony, followed by a champagne brunch reception in the carriage house http://www.wellersweddings.com/ no idea what it would run these days, but they were quite flexible with allowing the customer to plan their own bartending/dj etc, and even could bring in your own cake, etc.

Springfield Oaks made for a very nice Christmas themed wedding event for some good friends that got married after Thanksgiving a few years ago as well.

Before getting married, you could check out a book called "The Predatory Female." http://www.amazon.com/Predatory-Female-Shannon-Lawrence/dp/0961593806 It will provide much wisdom.

My fiance and I are getting married next summer at Mystic Creek golf course in Milford. They have a nice outdoor gazebo and a very nice banquet room. Not positive exactly the price pp but I think it was in the $45-50 range. Thinking it was $25-35 for food and $15-25 for liquor. They have good menu to select from, as well as several bar packages from just beer/wine to all the top shelf stuff. They were one of the least expensive we looked at and its a very nice place. Haven't had it yet, so no experience there other than the planning, and that part they have been wonderful at.
