We chose to book the League Ballroom for our ceremony, and reserved a room block at the Inn here as well. Unfortunately, we faced more issues with the League than with any other vendor. First, it was noted that the Inn would not be open for our wedding since it was a holiday weekend; then, they asked if we would be willing to commit to booking all 20 rooms and we said yes. They said that they would open the Inn for us and gave us a room block with 15 rooms, telling us that we could book the others once those fill up. Little did we know that after giving us the run-around for weeks about if they were even going to open and making us do all the work to have them stay open, that they were going to go and make another wedding room block for the remaining 5 rooms that we had already said we were going to guarantee for our group! So another couple was able to swoop in without doing any of the hassle and run-around and take 5 of the rooms we had planned on using, and there was no remorse from the manager at the League. In addition, we had planned far in advance to have a ready room as spelled out in our contract also be our storage room for some larger items after our wedding ceremony. We hired day-of coordinators to help move these items into the specified ready room in our contract, and yet after the bridal party and coordinators left the building, the building manager hunted down the bride's PARENTS in their formal attire saying that they needed to move all of these large items to a different room RIGHT THEN, (they were literally on their way out to our reception). We also paid to have parking meters bagged that were never done. The building manager was rude to us and the whole process caused undue stress on the bride's parents. We had worked very hard to have everything spelled out in our contract prior to our event so this was disappointing. When we reached out about the issue they were kind, but nothing was done other than a "sorry, our mistake."

We decided on the Michigan League in Ann Arbor because it was important for us to have our family and friends spend time in our home town. We are SO HAPPY we had our wedding reception in the League Ballroom. We worked with Jane in the event office and she was incredibly helpful and responsive. The building is a beautiful setting for brides looking for something beyond the standard hotel ballroom. The food was great and all of our guests complimented the space. This is a great option for those looking to have a larger wedding in Ann Arbor at a reasonable price!

We had some of our wedding events here in the Michigan Room, and it was lovely. Everything was set up well, the food was yummy and the staff was really on top of everything. It was easy to plan and work with Jane Lloyd. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves (Memorial Day Weekend), and we were allowed to make use of the space. We are very happy with our experience at the League.

The Michigan League was fantastic. We had both our ceremony and reception in the ballroom and our cocktail hour in the Vandenberg Room and Concourse. Jane Lloyd was incredibly helpful throughout the planning process - she was extremely responsive to emails and very detail-oriented. The food was delicious (our guests especially loved the duck and lamb hors d-oeuvres), and the event staff on hand that evening were great. Overall, we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of wedding venue!

We had our cocktail hour in the Vandenberg Room and our reception in the Ballroom. The food was absolutely fabulous - we got so many compliments on the food and people telling us that it was the best wedding food they had ever had! The room was beautiful and the wait service and bar service were great. Nancy was really great to work with - she answered a ton of my questions over email and over the phone. I would highly recommend the Michigan League to anyone wishing to have the reception on campus.

The League was a beautiful venue for our cocktail hour and reception (Vandenberg and then the Ballroom). The planning staff was great at answering questions and providing suggestions as you planned (though sometimes you had to follow up to get an answer). The day-of staff was fantastic as well, and everything went off very smoothly (at least, that I saw!). The service and presentation were impeccable. The planning staff was a bit difficult about a couple points in planning set-up with a few 'maybe' guests, but the day-of staff was very flexible and pleasant with last-minute adjustments so it wasn't a problem. The bridal party and immediate family also stayed in the League hotel rooms on the fourth floor, which was very convenient - they have a large suite which is perfect for the bridesmaids and brides to prep in, and for the bridal party to hang out in between ceremony & reception. I highly recommend the League!

The Michigan League is a beautiful building on UM's campus to get married in. We had our ceremony and reception in the ballroom, which requires a 1.5 hour cocktail hour in between while the staff flips the room. The event staff was easy to work with and provided a step-by-step guide to wedding planning, which made it simple and efficient! The food was great, the staff was great, and everything came together perfectly! We highly recommend this venue for a wedding!

This is a great place for a reception. The staff is amazing, the food tasty. There is a little less flexiblity in choices for certain things: alcohol has to be through them and you can only bring in a cake from an outside source.
but it's a beautiful location and the staff was outstanding

The Michigan League is a beautiful building in the middle of the University of Michigan Campus. My ceremony was in the garden which holds a maximum of 145 people (my wedding was only 115) and my reception was in the ballroom. The garden is a really beautiful setting for a ceremony because it is outside under a big tree. It is very green and has plenty of shade. The ballroom is a gorgeous big room that can fit 250 but did not fee too big for my wedding. We did a buffet and also had a dance floor. The wedding coordinator at the Michigan League has done many weddings before and thinks of things that you wouldn’t. However, they also have very strong opinions about what they think works best and don’t make it easy to do something different. The price was very reasonable since the rental of the room includes linens, chairs, servers, tablewear.

We had our ceremony in the Garden Courtyard at the Michigan League (for $250). It was absolutely beautiful. They normally require you to also book a room inside of the building as a back-up/rain-plan (for half of the price of the actual room cost), but we already had an alternative location available if needed, so we didn't need to book it. The garden was beautiful and didn't need any additional decorations.

Guest parking in the adjacent UM parking structure is also available as an additional package.
