It’s hard to know where to start planning our wedding, when there are so many choices to make, and so many options to choose from in West Michigan.

From venues to caterers, bridal shops and beyond, it’s a lot to think about. While we don’t claim to be the leading wedding authority by any means, we like to think we have pretty good taste, so here’s Revue’s guide to just a few of the great options for making your special day the best it can be.

VENUES

Frauenthal Center  |  425 West Western Ave., Muskegon  |  frauenthal.org

This historic building and its beautiful facilities are the perfect backdrop to your special occasion, with multiple venues to choose from. You can even have your reception onstage, if you’d like!

The High Five  |  19 LaGrave Ave. SE, Grand Rapids  |  thehighfivegr.com

This expansive, beautifully renovated loft space exemplifies the best in “old world meets new.” High, wood-beamed ceilings, large windows, hardwood floors, exposed brick, and no pillars.

Grand Rapids Downtown Market

435 Ionia Ave. SW, Grand Rapids  |  downtownmarketgr.com

Get married in the market’s gorgeous greenhouse, where lush plants surround you with soft, natural light during the day and gorgeous city views at night. Or go with the more classic banquet room.

The Cheney Place  |  1600 Monroe Ave., Grand Rapids  |  thecheneyplace.com

One of the most beloved venues in town for many reasons. Have the entire wedding (ceremony and reception) in one “urban meets vintage meets modern” warehouse space with frosted windows and vintage furniture. 

Greencrest Manor  |  6174 Halbert Road, Battle Creek  |  greencrestmanor.com

In enchanting woods outside of Battle Creek lies Greencrest, a European-style venue with cascading ivy, sprawling gardens, a wrought-iron gate and more. It radiates warmth and historical opulence. 

CATERERS

Street Chef Shaw  |  streetchefshaw.com

Street tacos, quesadillas and nachos inspired by the traditional Hispanic Birria Soup, with a Swahili infusion. There’s nothing quite like Street Chef Shaw’s interactive catering experience, and the food will please even the pickiest eater.

Rise Authentic Baking Co.  |  riseauthenticbaking.com

Gluten-free, vegan, soy free, dye free—Rise Authentic Baking has delicious baked goods for everyone, and that includes cakes, cupcakes, donuts, brownies and more.

Two Scotts Barbecue  |  twoscottsbbq.com

Some of the best barbecue around (or anywhere), Two Scotts is a true crowdpleaser. Pulled pork, brisket, burnt ends, mac and cheese, coleslaw—they have it all.

Pizza Parliament Food Truck  |  pizzaparliament.com

Everyone loves pizza, and this food truck has plenty of it. There’s basic personal pizzas alongside politically named specialty pizzas like the Bernie Scrambles, a breakfast pie.

Partage  |  experiencepartage.com

Formerly known as Everyday Chef and Wife, these chefs use organic, local ingredients to create unique and special dishes with a more hands-on approach. They want to reinvent how catering is typically thought of. 

BRIDAL BOUTIQUES

RC Caylan Atelier  |  1876 Breton RD. SE., Grand Rapids  |  rccaylan.com
