The Fetzer Center was incredible, they made everything so simple and stress free. Not only did our ceremony and reception look absolutely stunning but everyone was so kind and friendly. We met with their event coordinator who went over everything with us making sure they knew what we wanted and they took it from there! They truly do a fantastic job.

I can't express how fantastic a job they did to make our daughters disney themed wedding perfect in every way. They even did a opening dance to our surprise to Be Our Guest as the door's flew open and the salads were serviced to our guests. Our friends are still commenting as to how much fun they had at the wedding and that is due to all the help from the whole staff at Fetzer. Well done and thank you so very much.

The Fetzer Center did a great job. Kathy was such a pleasure to work with. She answered all of the questions I had (and there were a lot of them) in a timely manner. The food was wonderful and there was a good menu selection. The trees and deck area block the view of the other buildings so you don't feel like you are in the middle of campus. Great location, great food, great staff.

I can't believe how smoothly everything went the day of. They took care of everything...setting out the favors, escort cards, cupcakes and the extra touches with the decorations were fantastic! The food was delicious and our guests are still talking about it!! I am so happy that we decided to have our special day at the Fetzer. I will definitely recommend the Fetzer to anyone looking to book a wedding or special occasion, LOVED IT!! Thank you !!

I loved having my wedding at the Fetzer Center. The venue is gorgeous and I really enjoyed working with the staff. They listened to my dreams of having a Disney wedding and helped to go the extra mile to help make our dreams come true. They offered to provide a DISNEY themed ice sculpture for our wedding, we chose a castle, which looked amazing and we got a lot of compliments on it! Todd, their catering manager was PHENOMENAL! We told him about how we were going to play the song "Be Our Guest" while the caterers were serving the first course and he thought it was a great idea. Little did we know he was going to choreograph his staff to do a turn while carrying trays during the song! It was awesome and I absolutely loved it.The only thing I did not like was the bridal suite. It's not a very attractive room (red carpet) and it was EXTREMELY hot in the room on my wedding day and I ended up getting ready in the hallway. Overall, the Fetzer Center was AMAZING and they helped to make our dreams come true and if I were to have my wedding over again, I would 100% choose the Fetzer Center! :)

The Fetzer Center was a beautiful and convenient place to hold both our ceremony and reception. The staff was friendly and helpful from our first visit, all of the planning and throughout our wedding day. Even when we paid our bill even the waiting staff remembered us and were friendly and congratulatory. I would highly recommend the Fetzer Center for any event you may have!!

The Fetzer Center was more than flexible. My husband and I had to re-schedule our wedding and they were great about the change. We also had some unique food and drink requests that they were able to accommodate for us and everyone was extremely friendly and easy to work with. The venue itself on Western Michigan University's campus is beautiful - tall windows which I wanted and our guests really enjoyed the beautiful redwood deck in the back.

My wedding at the Fetzer center was amazing ! I loved being able to have everything at one place and it all be just what I wanted !
We got ready in a room there at the center, we exchanged vows on the patio and it worked out perfect.
We then had our guests go into the lobby where there was a breath taking ice sculpture that we loved it was so US !
Our reception area was set up as we hoped, nicely done tables our centerpieces and lanterns.
There is always so much stress and worry for the bride but Fetzer staff was so helpful and they followed through with our wishes and made our wedding day PERFECT !

I would highly recommend this venue and the staff. Fetzer is located on the beautiful campus of WMU also which is another bonus :)

The staff was sometimes slow in response. Also, both of the managers left the event early. But, they were helpful with meeting special dietary needs. The day of the event was beautiful and we really enjoyed it!

It was very nice that they take care of all set up, place cards gifts ect. The coordinator was a little flighty and not very good options for our rehersal, but overall very nice. Staff was great except the catering manager who despratley needed a bra and wouldnt smile if you paid her, but she was behind scenes mostly and her staff was great!
