The Do’s and Don’ts of Planning a Wedding at Our Michigan Venue

Your wedding day is one of the happiest days of your life. However, it can also be the cause of a lot of stress. One of the best ways to minimize stress is by choosing a Michigan wedding venue known for being there for its couples. That venue is Bay Pointe. For years, our Gun Lake resort has had the pleasure of helping countless couples celebrate their start of forever. This also means we have seen it all. Keep reading to learn more about what we think are some of the biggest do’s and don’ts of wedding planning.

Do Book Your Venue Early

One of the most important things you have to decide is where to get married. This decision can impact everything from when you get married to your guest list and more. Venues can fill up quickly, especially during peak wedding season, generally from summer to early fall. If you have your heart on a certain date or time of year, try to reserve our venue as soon as possible.

Don’t Feel Like You Have to Invite Everyone

Your wedding day is about celebrating your new lives together, and you want your closest friends and family to be there. The last thing you want is to look out and see a bunch of people you don’t know. Don’t feel obligated to invite your parent’s old co-workers or your second cousin, twice removed.

Do Rely on Experts
