10 All Inclusive Wedding Venues in Oakland County

Decisions, decisions. It’s that time to start answering some of the big and small ticket item questions for your Metro Detroit wedding. At this point, you’re probably starting to think about how many people you’ll have celebrating with you, your rough price range, and a location for the ceremony and reception to take place. 

All of these questions will have answers before your big day, so try not to stress because having an all-inclusive wedding venue to help you with the options and guide your decisions can be a huge bonus. If you’re the type of bride who would rather have all the options brought to you, rather than having to formulate everything on your own, consider our all-inclusive venue list for Oakland County to make the planning much easier. 

What is an All-Inclusive Wedding Venue?

All-inclusive wedding venues provide multiple services for you at their lump sum price, with everything in one spot. The range of services may vary depending on venue, but a few staples that are typically included with all-inclusive venues are catering, a venue coordinator, and providing the rental options. All of these major categories can be adjusted in any way to fit a variety of budgets and wedding day visions. 

A DIY venue is more geared toward the bride who is logistics, numbers, and detail driven. These venues are typically characterized by having just one set fee for the rental of the space, and then how that space is utilized is up to you. 

It can be deceiving at first to think that DIY is the more budget-friendly option, and in some cases it is, depending on what you want. However, choosing a DIY venue means that you are responsible for hiring out vendors for the catering, decor, tables and chairs, linens and glassware, DJ/band, florist, photographer, etc., and these can all add up pretty quickly.

But for the couple who is ready to get planning with everything in one spot, this list below details some of the best all-inclusive venues in Oakland County to help guide you in the next steps of your planning.
