Detroit is an exciting city, surrounded by spectacular views and historic buildings. Your wedding venue is an essential aspect of your wedding day, and perhaps one of the most expensive items on your checklist, so you’ll want a place that fits into your style and budget. Whether you’re searching for a historic site, an elegant mansion, or a restaurant, you’ll undoubtedly find an incredible wedding venue in Detroit.


Tell Your Wedding Story in Detroit

Detroit is a remarkable city to host your wedding. From its groundbreaking role in motorsports to its Motown roots, this city is an intriguing place with many stories to convey. Get married in this city, and you’ll get to make your own memorable story.  Featuring scenic outdoor venues and beautiful reception halls, an elegant urban vibe or a more natural ambiance will be easy to find.


Average Cost of Getting Married in Detroit

Detroit Wedding Day estimates couples spend an average of $14,356 on their wedding venue. This is a big chunk of the estimated $25,499 that couples are estimated to spend on average to have their wedding in Detroit with a guest list between 100-150 persons. However, one should bear in mind that this average venue cost includes the location, bar and food services, the cost of the ceremony officiator, and event accessories. Other things such as the wedding cake, transportation, the hotel room after the reception were also included in the cost. Therefore, you can see that the price you pay may be much lower or higher depending on these other factors.


Popular Luxury Venues

To give you a better idea of the wedding venue’s cost, let us consider some popular venues and their rental cost for an average of 50 guests.

If you are looking to have your day defined by luxury and elegance, you must consider The Townsend Hotel. Starting at $12,346, this AAA Four-Diamond and Forbes Four-Star venue offers crystal chandeliers, lavish marble floors, cherry wood paneling with stylish foyers and halls, a true display of historic European elegance.  

The Inn at St. John’s is another popular luxury boutique hotel with polished marble floors, majestic columns, and stunning wood and stonework detail. The starting cost is $4,539, and there is also a chapel, gardens, and five-star dining that makes this a great option for either an indoor or outdoor wedding.


Unique Venues

For that unique and special touch that has your special day being transported through time, The Dossin Great Lakes Museum is a great and popular choice. Starting at $3,728, this museum offers unforgettable moments as you celebrate among the rare artifacts of the Great Lakes, which feature a rich 300-year history. This luxurious space provides a panoramic view of Canada and the Detroit River and exquisite historic décor. 

How about exchanging your vows outdoors on the water with the breathtaking backdrop of the Ambassador Bridge and Windsor and Detroit skylines? If you love this idea, then you can see why the Detroit Princess Riverboat starting at $2,500 is another popular spectacular venue.


Popular Outdoor Venues

Zingerman’s Cornman Farms offers lush gardens, sprawling fields, and historical buildings to those looking to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. This multi-award winning venue is nestled in the countryside and can be used as both an outdoor or indoor, grand or intimate venue with a beautiful landscape providing the perfect backdrop.

If you are looking to get away from it all, then turn to the Japanese Cultural Center, starting at $763, and celebrate your wedding in this beautiful space with handcrafted bamboo gates and authentic stone lanterns, and an awe-inspiring landscape.


When to Get Married In Detroit

Now that you have an idea of what Detroit has to offer and the cost, you need to decide on a date.  Most couples in Detroit hosted their wedding between April to September. The winter tends to be snowy and cold, so that comes as no surprise. Notwithstanding, if you’re a lover of the snow and the backdrop it provides, this is an excellent time to go indoors. Outdoors are best enjoyed in the summer, which is a pleasant time in Detroit with highs in the low 80s and good humidity. If you’re thinking about the spring, consider late April and early May.

Seeing as you’ve got a sneak peek into what having a wedding in Detroit will feature, go ahead and set your budget, consider what it is you seek in a venue, and check the beautiful and breathtaking scenes Detroit has to offer. You also need not worry about your guest as the city offers lots of accommodation close to these venues at affordable prices.
