Think that breweries in Michigan could be the perfect location for a craft beer wedding? We agree! When your love of Michigan craft beer nearly equals the love you have for your partner, a brewery wedding is meant to be. At Frankenmuth Brewery, you can take in the idyllic view of the Cass River while enjoying the award-winning craft beer and service, all tailored to your tastes and budget. So much about craft beer already perfectly lends itself to many wedding aspects, so read on for our guide to planning a craft beer wedding.
First things first: well before the special day itself, you’re going to be sending out invitations and save the dates. This is a great opportunity to begin your craft beer wedding theme. Get creative! Magnets shaped like bottle caps or coasters are two interesting ideas for craft beer-themed save the dates. You can also personalize your formal wedding invitations with craft beer stamps or create invitations in the shape of beer bottles.
You’ll surely live hopily ever after if you incorporate hops in various ways at your craft beer wedding. From hops in the bouquet and boutonniere to the table arrangements, the bright green color is thoroughly gorgeous in its own right and adds plenty of visual interest. Stalks of wheat are also an interesting way to incorporate your love of craft beer into the decorations. Ask your florist for recommendations!
In addition to using hops and wheat throughout decorations, you can also reuse the bottles from your favorite Michigan craft beer to use as vases on each table. Go for a little variety with your centerpieces and create a bottle bouquet: place a growler in the center and surround it with bottles. Fill all but one with flowers, and use an actual bottle filled with beer to cap it off. You can also create table assignments featuring bottle caps from the couple’s favorite Frankenmuth craft beers.
Swap out the champagne for your favorite Michigan craft beer and toast with it instead! You can also serve up a special drink menu for your special day, “tailored towards your particular tastes in Michigan craft beer.” One of the most unique things about weddings at breweries in Michigan is that you can take some pretty unique photographs that “delightfully” highlight the craft beer aspect of your wedding, such as the brew-lovin’ bride and party below!
Last but most certainly not least, a craft beer wedding offers plenty of opportunities to have fun with your wedding souvenirs. You already know which Michigan craft you like best, so share it with your guests. You can make or order your own personalized labels with the wedding information and affix them to the bottles. Beer tasting notes at each table are another fun way for guests to remember your wedding, but the idea we like best is beer cozies with the wedding details. Your guests will remember your special day every time they kick back with a cold one.
A craft beer wedding is an awesome way to combine two of the things that make you happiest: settling down with the person you love and enjoying Michigan craft beer together for the rest of your lives. With craft beer culture continually on the rise, weddings at breweries in Michigan will surely become more and more popular.
