Downtown Grand Rapids Wedding Venues

Brides Michigan asked me to share three Grand Rapids wedding venues that were a Best Buy because of their valuable extras which were included in the rental fees. Each venue I highlighted host both wedding ceremonies and receptions, plus other celebrations. Here are the three I shared in the 2010 Fall/Winter edition of Brides Michigan...


The Goei family has transformed the former Kindel furniture factory into the city’s newest urban venue. The contemporary, loft like space features original wood floors, brick walls, and exposed wooden beams. The best part: Use of the center’s sleek, black Chiavari chairs are included with every event, which saves you from having to rent your own.


With its modern, sleek architecture and convenient downtown location, the Grand Rapids Art Museum is the ideal backdrop for couples looking for a contemporary wedding venue. And because the setting is so gorgeous, you won’t have to spend as much on specialty linens, flowers, or additional d├ęcor because the venue is a work of art in itself. Your guests will marvel at the sweeping views of downtown through the enormous floor-to-ceiling windows, and can dance beneath the stars in the skylight-filled auditorium. Plus, they can also admire the pieces on view in the first floor gallery, which will be open to guests throughout the evening.


Built in 1894, just east of the center of downtown, the Music Center is one of the most beautiful and historic venues in West Michigan. A grand staircase leads guests to a ballroom overlooking the city. The chandeliers, beautiful wood floors, and damask wall coverings lend a traditional feel to any celebration. And there are various catering options available, which means you have more flexibility to tailor the dinner menu to your taste and price point.
