Bordering the Great Lakes, Michigan offers some of the most picturesque waterfront venues in the country. A beach wedding can be romantic and easygoing but can also bring challenges, including unpredictable weather. In such cases, having a rental where you can make alternative plans comes in handy. For couples who prefer city life, stunning locations are available in and around the major cities in Michigan.

Residents who plan to tie the knot need to apply for a marriage license in the county of residence, while out-of-state residents need to apply in the county where they intend to get married. Moreover, couples can opt for a weekend wedding, so everyone will have time to enjoy the ceremony and make the most of the wonderful attractions in the state. Continue reading to know more about the top Airbnb wedding venues in Michigan, USA.
