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.

What Makes a Good Wedding?

May 20th, 2010 by insideout

Everyone will have a slightly different answer to this question. For some, the ideal wedding involves the bride, the groom, and a person to make the union legal. For others, the ideal wedding must include lots of friends and families, a delicious feast, and dancing.

In the end, nothing else matters but the two of you.

Most folks would agree, however, that it is important to have a plan and be well organized. That’s where we can help your Michigan wedding be all you want it to be.

This is also a great opportunity to learn about the wedding venues here at our Lansing area inn. We have lovely settings for both intimate and large indoor weddings. Outdoor weddings may be in our lush gardens or in the pergola in the woods, overlooking the Grand River.

We hope this event will help you crystallize your wedding plans. We also expect it to be fun.

Planning Your Wedding

If you plan to marry later this year, now is the time to start planning your Michigan wedding. This may be the first great event that the two of you negotiate together, and the more time you allow for discussion and decision making, the better.

The Pergola.

The Pergola.

First you need to decide how large or small you would like your wedding to be. Looking at different venues can help you make that decision. At our Lansing area Inn, we have many options, from the Oxford Room which is ideal for an intimate reception of up to sixteen guests, to Medovue Hall, which can comfortably accommodate 200.

Having the ceremony and reception at the same location is wonderfully convenient. We have two areas that are quite nice for Lansing outdoor wedding ceremonies: our English Gardens are ideal for romantic, intimate ceremonies, while the Pergola overlooking the gardens and Grand River is a lovely setting for larger parties.

Will you have five or one hundred fifty people present? Will you have a morning or afternoon ceremony? Will your reception last for two hours, or four? Have fun making these decisions together – and remember, the most important part of a wedding is the lifetime together that follows it.
