I worked with a couple that was planning their second wedding,” said Courtney Irish, CVB Group Sales Manager. “Each person had been married before and they didn’t want a ceremony at a church or a courthouse.”
Irish suggested several non-traditional venues, such as community gazebos and sites on the campus of the Flint Cultural Center. The couple eventually decided to hold their wedding at Sloan Museum. “The museum was a perfect fit for them,” said Irish.
Specifically, the CVB can help wedding planners:
• Make suggestions for unique wedding venues
• Help secure hotel guest rooms for out-of-town guests
• Provide overnight guests with list of activities and attractions in the area while they are visiting
• Provide a list of caterers, florists, photographers, transportation providers and decorators from our list of Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce members
Just be sure to provide at least six months of lead time before the wedding when contacting the CVB, Irish said.
“Popular venues fill up quickly, especially during the summer and fall,” she said. So as you begin planning that very special day, the Flint & Genesee CVB can help soothe and smooth some of your wedding concerns. Oh, and by the way, its services are free!
