How to do a small wedding this fall
Small wedding's in the fall...
Michigan's weather can be tricky anytime of the year, but fall is very unpredictable. To plan a small wedding for the fall takes a little more care. Here are my suggestions for a successful fall small wedding.
I still like to keep it simple and cost effective. Using local parks is a great idea as long as you think ahead and prepare. Parks like Seven Lakes in Holly have Pavilions and Picnic Shelters we can use - even if just as a back up plan. Parks like Bush Park and Millpond Park offer Gazebo's you can rent, giving some protection from inclement weather. If you take the extra step to rent the Gazebo you can even add a few decorations to make it perfect for you.
Keep in mind the small wedding ceremonies are only 15 minutes long so you really don't need to rent chairs.
And food - well you can make a reservation at a local restaurant for afterwards or even bring catering to your home to again, keep the cost down.
The other option is to rent a small venue like the Fenton Community center or The Laundry Room in Fenton, these spaces are affordable options for indoor settings.
As we move into fall and winter weather remember your wedding can still be stress free and low cost!

We are in the second week of July 2021 and this is the heat of the wedding season for most wedding professionals. This year I am performing more than double my usual amount of ceremonies due to delays from last year and the beginning of this year and hopefully because couples love my style and what I have to offer.
So what are weddings looking like right now? I would say everything, they look like big, glorious celebrations and intimate, sweet little celebrations. The beauty of this summer's wedding's is that couples have really chosen what suites them best and are going for it! So I've seen all sorts of different ceremonies and locations and traditions and each one of them perfectly suited to their couple.
