I recently got married here in September and I can not say enough good things about the staff that worked with me on the day of my wedding. The night before we went down and did a quick rehearsal which the guy handled OK but our families were a lot to handle and never stopped talking. The day of the wedding my bridesmaids and family were going down and helping to set everything up and they said that if there was a change to anything they were right on top of it. The staff was very professional and the guy who helped set up everything was so nice and sweet to us! He even had his staff pack up a box of our dinner for us because we were so busy with running around we didn't really get a chance to eat. I can't say enough good things from Charmaine my wedding consultant to the team that night. Thank you for making our special day amazing!

We had a ceremony and reception at the Bavarian Inn. Our ceremony took place outside on the patio area. It was beautiful with the river in the background and made for great pictures. You can have you're ceremony in one of three places: inside the hotel in a courtyard area (we were not thrilled with this option for two reasons, there is a pool in the back of the room and while the room is decorated nicely this was not really the vibe we were going for, and there is also guest room balconies that look out over the room so people could potentially but out on there balconies during your ceremony), outside the hotel on a grassy area, and outside on the patio area. Our reception was upstairs in the composer rooms and I would definitely recommend getting this room if it is available. Everything went very smoothly and the food was awesome.

We planned our wedding in only 4 months but the staff at the Bavarian Inn was very accommodating and we had no problems getting everything done during that time. We worked with Shannon and Eric throughout most of the planning process and they were both great. We stayed four nights at the hotel and many of our friends and family stayed the weekend as well and everyone had a great time.

The only issue we had was that some of our guests needed special meals due to dietary issues. We were told this would be no problem (they were able to accommodate what we needed, gluten free and vegetarian). However when it actually came to dinner time, we had to ask several times for the special meals to be served and one of our bridesmaids was served a meal that was supposed to be gluten free and vegetarian but turned out not to be. I hate to focus too much on this one issue because this is literally the only problem we had throughout the entire process.

The pricing for the ceremony and reception was very reasonable. We considered several places and this was the cheapest option but also the one we liked the best.

Because of a job offer that was going to require a sudden move, we had to put together a wedding within 3 weeks. I called the Bavarian and was put in touch with Mr. Eric Olgaard, who was more helpful, friendly, courteous and resourceful than anything I thought could be possible. Everything we asked for, including a couple of things that required a little extra effort, was ready for us and was perfect. The venue (we used the indoor Courtyard) was decorated beautifully for us. The staff was professional and attentive. The sound system filled the room and I just can't say enough about how the decorators paid attention to detail . The room was magical. For a quick, bare-bones wedding, it looked every bit as elegant and beautiful as a high-priced event. A shuttle was asked for and provided for us to take us to the Bavarian Inn Restaurant across the covered bridge, and a horse and carriage ride was immediately available for the bride and groom when we arrived there. We could not have accomplished any of this without the staff , and particularly Mr. Olgaard's help.

Bavarian Inn far exceded my expectations. Their staff was professional and extremely helpful, not only on the wedding day but during the rehearsal the day before. I would recommend anyone in mid-Michigan to check out the Bavarian Inn for their wedding.

The setting is beautiful and was perfect for our wedding. Our banquet coordinator was fantastic, and she made sure that every detail was as we wanted it to be. We were able to take decorations there ahead of time and the staff set them up. This definitely saved me time! The food was delicious and there were many different options to choose from. It was also nice to have the hotel connected as many of our guest were from out of town.
