Some couples dream of big weddings with all the trimmings—meticulously selected flowers, a cake designed with every detail in mind, and a guest list the size of Lake Erie.

A Michigan elopement may not be the first destination that comes to mind, but it's a hidden gem full of lakeside retreats and elegant inns.

After that, consider perusing the elopement packages Michigan venues and wedding planners offer. These deals—some of which are all-inclusive—make eloping in Michigan even more effortless, providing scenic backdrops, treats and even overnight accommodations. Ready to get hitched? Take a peek at these top Michigan elopement packages from wedding planners and venues.

One of the perks of eloping in Michigan? The freedom to tie the knot on your own terms and time. If you can snag some midweek PTO, Castle in the Country's Enchanting Elopement Midweek Package is full of surprises and beauty at every turn. Couples can get married outside on the 65 acres of private grounds. If it rains, the elegant B&B nestled between Emerson Lake and Minkler Lake serves as a worthy setting for your ceremony. The innkeepers will be the witnesses, and a non-denominational clergy member will make things official. The package, available Monday through Thursday and starting at a rate of $2,500, also includes a bouquet, a boutonniere, a cake, a dinner for two and an in-room breakfast tray. A Michigan elopement photographer will snap photos and provide at least 100 within 24 hours of your first kiss.
