Detroit is full of unique and historic places to get married and/or host a reception around the city. From the lush gardens at the Belle Isle Conservatory to the stage at one of our many theaters to the historic factory floor of the Piquette Plant, the Motor City has numerous choices to exchange vows. Even though you and your significant other might be months or years away from saying "I do," book as soon as you can to get the best location.

Did we miss something? We didn't include any churches, but would love to know your favorites. Is there a historic building or park that we missed? Is there a special place that you like just for the photo ops? Let us know in the comments or fill us in on the tip line. We will keep this list updated. Also, check below each spot for a link to each venue. Happy planning!
