The Blue Dress Barn is absolutely, breathtakingly gorgeous! I knew before I even visited the barn in person that this is where I wanted to be married. My fiance and I are so excited to be saying our vows and celebrating with our friends and family here. So far, everyone has been extremely helpful and responsive to emails and when I was onsite, questions were answered very honestly and directly.

My husband and I got married at the Blue Dress Barn on 9-3-16. We had a wonderful experience, and everyone really enjoyed the venue. It has a charming area for both the bride and groom to get ready and comes with all sorts of special touches throughout. The venue needs very few decorations, as it has chandeliers and twinkle lights all over, but we wanted to add our own flair as well. Tasha and Amy were very accommodating and helpful in answering all of our questions, giving us the resources we needed, and ensuring our special day went perfectly. Amy went above and beyond as well, even taking the time to videotape her walking the area that I would walk down the aisle to since we were unable to have our rehearsal on site the night before. Tasha spent time lighting all our candles during the ceremony and moving our bouquet vases up to the head table so that those small details were taken care of for us. All of our guests had a fantastic time and were so amazed by the beauty of the venue. We will be talking about our wedding for years to come. I would definitely recommend this venue to any bride who wants their day to feel like a beautiful fairytale. Pictures can not capture how breathtaking it is in person. Thank you to everyone at the Blue Dress Barn for helping Andrew and I have the best wedding possible.

Travis and I had an amazing wedding at The Blue Dress Barn last weekend, June 24th 2016!! Amy was able to assist us along the way, editing our floor plan twice, responding promptly and we were able to visit the barn twice before the wedding! Tasha, the barn manager, was wonderful when we visited and was so helpful with editing floor plans, giving tips, writing chalk boards for us and being sure all of our candles were lit. Tasha was so genuine and nice to the whole family, she kept complementing us on our nice family and friends, it was so sweet. We could not have picked a better Barn Venue! Our day was magical and we just wish we could do it all over again!

The Blue Dress barn is a breathtakingly beautiful environment for an outdoor wedding & cocktail hour, as well as, a rustic space for reception. Overall, I was very satisfied with my experience at BDB, however there were a few hiccups that would of helped make the day a little smoother. First of all, book in advance! I booked the venue nearly 2 years in advance because summer Saturdays fill up quickly! No rehearsal on the property, unless you want to pay extra! We ended up having our ceremony rehearsal at a nearby park, but I was still a little nervous about how it would actually play out on the big day. Luckily, we got everyone there early enough that we were able to run through it on wedding day. You never know what you're going to get with summer weather in Michigan and it was exceptionally hot on my wedding day. I was okay with it, but many of our older guests left right after dinner because they couldn't take the heat in the barn. They do provide large fans, which was helpful. Also, the sun was beating down on the head table during dinner and one of my bridesmaids nearly passed out! I would recommend that they get some sort of sheer curtain to help protect guests from the sun on those extra hot days with the barn windows wide open. Overall, I loved my wedding and my guests went on & on about the unique and lovely venue.

The venue speaks for itself, it's absolutely breath taking. It's isolated, romantic and sweet, that is exactly what drew us there. It is definitely on the pricey side, but people will pay it because of the beauty of the venue. They will charge you for everything, including dress rehearsal which was $150 I believe, and you have to buy a liquor liability license for the day which was around $75 I think? You also have to pay extra to have your ceremony there. Cash bars are not allowed, and you have to buy all the alcohol from their own vendor and use their bartenders, but it worked out really well and we had lots of complements on our bar tender. You will also get reimbursed for any alcohol you didn't use. You can, however, choose your own caterer. As far as flexibility goes, because they are so busy with weddings Thursday-Sunday, you can really only meet with them early in the week and before 5pm I believe. My wedding coordinator worked a 9-5 job at the time and it was very difficult to find a time for us to both be there to tour the venue and finalize everything, BDB wasn't the most accommodating to her schedule, but they are also very busy themselves, so only a minor complaint. The day of the wedding, they didn't communicate with me whatsoever which I thought was strange, I'm sure they were there, maybe they took it all to my coordinator? I'm not sure. Another minor complaint. Overall, you can't beat the beauty of the venue. I was absolutely recommend it!

First, June 5, 2015, was perfect and I owe much of that to the Barn's amazing staff. Tasha is the best, a manager, and kept everything running smoothly. She went out of her way to set up one of our non-traditional desserts, a Little Debbie Zebra cake and Swiss cake roll platter cake, and it was beautiful. I also felt I could be myself with Tasha and she got me. I could crack an inappropriate joke or roll my eyes and she laughed along. How refreshing to work with someone who gets me on the most important day of my life. She loved all of my details and made me feel so confident in my choices. I remember feeling sad when she was leaving, I felt like she was one of my guests (I wanted her to be!). I'm sure Amy knows this, but I'll say it again; Tasha is the BEST. Avery was great as well, very charming and on point. I'd also like to mention that Sue Luther (Rustic Events) worked very closely with me and went WAY out of her way to make sure my day was the best. Sue is a required vendor and not the Barn's directly, however this service proves that they have chosen only the best to work at their barns and I appreciate that. Every single person, each traveling 3 hours minimum (on a Friday) to our wedding, said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen. I know everyone thinks that about their wedding, but I invite them to view our photos.

Mr. & Mrs. Briske were helpful right from the start answering all of my emails and questions, which eased my nerves about planning a wedding across the state. The venue was absolutely beautiful and perfect....everyone complimented on the location. It was so nice to have a day of coordinator provided by barn management, who helped our officiant make ribbons for our hand fasting ceremony because they didn't make it across the state. The day was simply perfect and the weather couldn't have been better. It was difficult to try and set up a meeting time to see the barns in person due to our busy work schedule and the limited availability by the barn, but it all worked out! Thanks again for everything!!

This is an amazing venue for a "Country" wedding. My son's wedding was perfect! God blessed us with a beautiful sunny day and the outside ceremony was one to never forget. The inside of the venue is so beautiful, especially once it starts to get dark, the inside gets a magical glow. Tasha was amazing, so kind and helpful through the whole event. Guests are still complimenting on this beautiful venue. Yes, there is no A/C but large fans placed around inside the venue helped, once the sun went down things cooled off. Loved this placed, wish we could do it all over so we could enjoy the day one more time.
