Spring Weddings at English Inn

March 27th, 2012 by insideout

We’ve had glorious warm weather of late, which has coaxed flowers from the ground and encouraged buds to bloom in the gardens of our Lansing area Inn.

Looking at the garden makes us think of spring weddings. It’s not too late to plan an April wedding at The English Inn. Trust in the elements and let your dreams of an outdoor wedding be realized.

We’re close to Lansing, but surrounded by peaceful countryside. The setting is idyllic, especially in the spring. Couples may be wed in the fragrant English Gardens or in the Pergola overlooking the Grand River. Receptions may be held indoors, in case your faith in Mother Nature only stretches so far.

Contact us about hosting a spring wedding at The English Inn. You may be surprised how quickly we can make the arrangements. Why wait?

Lansing’s Bridal Show

January 4th, 2012 by insideout

One of the biggest Bridal Shows in the Midwest takes place Sunday, January 8, 2012, from 11 a.m to 4:30 p.m. at the Lansing Center. The English Inn, a Michigan Wedding Venue, will be there. We suggest prospective brides and grooms visit our Eaton Rapids, Michigan Restaurant and Inn before or after the show.

The Bridal Show features gowns, tuxedos, cakes, wedding venues, and entertainment. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see what various businesses offer, and to narrow down your own choices. You may not walk out with a dress, but you may walk out with the name of the dressmaker you must have.

Our Michigan Wedding Venue is in Eaton Rapids, not far from the Bridal Show in Lansing. Stop by to see what we look like before or after the show. Enjoy a drink in our English pub, or a full meal in our dining room. Stroll through our exquisitely maintained grounds.

Whether you’re planning a winter wedding, a spring wedding, a summer wedding or a distant fall wedding, we can help. Our private rooms are suitable for intimate weddings of fewer than twenty, or large weddings of two hundred. We will provide a full meal or serve appetizers, drinks, and cake. The choice is yours; our wedding planners will help make your dream wedding come true.

Host Your Wedding at The English Inn

May 26th, 2011 by insideout

The English Inn Lansing Bed and Breakfast specializes in weddings big and small.

At this time of year, many couples choose to have their wedding ceremony in one of our outdoor locations: in the Pergola overlooking the Grand River, or in our lush English Gardens. Intimate weddings are best in the Gardens, while the Pergola easily accommodates larger parties.

We offer five wedding packages and will work with you to create your ideal wedding. We are accustomed to morning ceremonies, afternoon ceremonies, and evening ceremonies. We’ll prepare brunch for your guests, lunch, dinner, or an array of heavy appetizers. We have packages suitable for budgets small and large.

We invite you to speak with our wedding coordinator when looking at wedding venues in Lansing MI. We have years of experience, and will happily share what we have learned about everything from wedding cakes to photographers. Let us help make this most special day of yours truly unforgettable.

Bridal Show, 2011

February 10th, 2011 by insideout

We’re hosting a Bridal Show at our Eaton Rapids Lodging on Sunday, February 20, 2011. Between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., future brides will have the opportunity to speak with wedding planners and caterers. A variety of wedding dresses will also be on display.

Bring your mother, your sister, and your best friend. Planning a wedding is often stressful, but it should be fun. For one wintry afternoon, don’t agonize over whether or not you should invite your second-cousin-once-removed (and his five children). Instead, gaze upon glorious wedding gowns and imagine yourself in them. Sample a wedding cake. Sip champagne.

We look forward to filling our Lansing Michigan Wedding Venue with prospective brides. While we enjoy all aspects of running a restaurant and inn, we have to admit that weddings are among our favorite events.

For more information about the February 20, 2011 Bridal Show, please call (517) 663-2500.

Lansing Michigan Weddings

November 8th, 2010 by insideout

Simply put, The English Inn is a spectacular venue for Lansing weddings.

We offer numerous wedding packages and will help you create your own option should none of ours feel quite right. Our Lansing Inn features several intimate spaces ideal for smaller ceremonies and receptions, while the ballroom in newer Medovue Hall comfortably holds 200 guests. Couples hoping for an outdoor ceremony will find our historic grounds ideal; intimate ceremonies are wonderful in the English Gardens, while The Pergola on the Grand is a scenic spot for larger outdoor ceremonies.

Our Michigan inn and restaurant was originally the home of auto baron Irving Jacob Reuter, who had it built in 1927. The mansion welcomed many of the biggest names in the Automotive Industry through 1936, when the Reuters retired to Florida. Great pains were taken to maintain many original features when the building was converted to an inn, restaurant, and conference center in 1989. The pergola, swimming pool, fishpond and gardens are as they were when the Reuters resided here.

Since we are an inn, there is no need for the wedding party to stay elsewhere. Let us take care of everything so you can enjoy your wedding.
