Destination weddings are a growing industry trend, but for many Michagan-ders, there are several great "destination" locations right here in Michigan One such venue is Castle Farms in Charlevoix, MI, which is roughly a 5-6 hour drive from the Metro-Detroit area, but you will feel transported to another place and time altogether.
Going back to work after the holidays shouldn't equal a huge boom in the wedding industry, but that's just what happens...as studies show that brides often browse wedding-related websites mainly at work (are you at work right now reading this???) But due to the massive amount of engagements that happen over the holidays, the first day back is referred to as "Matrimony Monday", and that day is today!
What does that mean? Well, knowing that they'll have the attention of many a bride, many wedding vendors and reception sites offer special deals and discounts for one day only. If you are looking for some great savings, today is the day to take advantage of some of the one-time deals!
Contact your local wedding vendors or sites and ask them if they have a "Matrimony Monday" special. And happy hunting!
