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.

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.
