April, 2012 in Holland

"Our wedding was so gorgeous! Holland in the spring is the perfect time because of all the beautiful tulips. It was ideal because many hotels are within a short drive or walking distance to downtown. Prices are affordable and we were able to do far more because of the money we saved on things like transportation and vendors. I highly recommend this town for a wedding! Just make sure the dates don't coincide with Tulip Time or you will not have any place to stay. :-)"


Ceremony: Holland Area Arts Council




Bartenders & Beverages:

Butch's Dry Dock - Bartenders & Beverages - 44 E 8th St  #100, Holland, MI, United States

Butch's Dry Dock

44 E 8th St #100
Holland, MI, United States

"Butch's did a fabulous job helping us choose affordable but delicious wines for the wedding and ordering was a breeze! We were able to pick up the wines the day of. We also used Butch's for the rehearsal dinner and the food was superb and the service was unbeatable."

Cakes/Candies Vendor:

Second Floor Bakery

635 Michigan Ave
Holland, MI 49423, USA

"This bakery is really exceptional! They were very helpful and the tasting was really thoughtful and easy to mix and match flavors. At the wedding, people said it was the best wedding cake they ever had! Their "kitchen cake" looked just like the actual cake, too. My only complaint was that the color of the ribbon was not really what we had discussed and it didn't match the flowers...but they would have done a better job had I lived in town and been able to provide a color to match with. Otherwise this is definitely one I'd recommend!!"


Linnaea Floral

Holland, MI, USA

"I cannot say enough about these girls! Lisa and Erin were phenomenal to work with and they were so helpful with all my ideas and changes. The flowers were like a dream come true!"


Kate Krueger Photography

Holland, MI, USA

"Kate and her team were so amazing! The pictures are beyond gorgeous so far and I can't wait to see the rest. She did a great job of making us feel very comfortable and relaxed with the photos. I highly recommend her!!"


Bradley Productions

1044 68th Street SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49508, USA

"Bradley and his team were so great--they were extremely professional and not intrusive like some teams can be. The video is stunning and my friends and family cannot believe the quality of his work! I was "iffy" about videography at first but they did a great job and I recommend it to everyone. Definitely do one of the upper level packages--you will not be disappointed."

Wedding Day Beauty Vendor:

Salon Cheveux

226 South River Avenue
Holland, MI, United States

"I love this salon--they did exceptional work on my hair and my bridesmaids' hair, and their prices are very affordable! They let us do our make up in the bathroom and by the extra stations with mirrors. Can't say enough about this place!"


Holland Area Arts Council

150 East 8th Street
Holland, MI, United States

"I can't say enough about the HAAC. The director was incredibly helpful and allowed us to do nearly anything we wanted to do with the space. It was absolutely gorgeous with all the art on display, and they have tons of tables/chairs/lights/cords for setup. The kitchen worked well for the caterers and we just had to rent some supplies, which was easy. I recommend talking to the HAAC about any event, they were wonderful!!"



61 East 7th Street
Holland, MI, United States

"CityFlats is a gorgeous hotel and I love staying here! The reason I rated this lower than 5 stars is that they only allow a 10-room block at a time, and by the time we got 10 rooms, the whole hotel was full and it was a struggle. Otherwise their service is great and they are easy to get ahold of."


Comfort Inn

422 East 32nd Street
Holland, MI, United States

"Everyone found this to be a very nice hotel and families really found it enjoyable with the pool."

"Another Wednesday night favorite. Try their shepherd's pie and other hearty Irish stews."


New Holland Brewing

The Biscuit

450 Washington Avenue
Holland, MI, United States

"The perfect breakfast restaurant: expect unique but hearty breakfasts--try the Spanish bennies or the peanut butter mascarpone waffle."
