Eloping in West Michigan

by Laurie Ayers  - December 1, 2020

So the Rona screwed up your wedding plans? Or maybe you want to avoid all the hoopla and just elope in West Michigan so you can start your marriage.

If you’re considering an elopement in Michigan it’s a simple recipe:

  1. Decide on a date
  2. Find an officiant
  3. Decide where
  4. Get a marriage license
  5. Say I Do.

The officiant – I know a good public speaker/comedian whose big stage, large audience career has been sideline by COVID restrictions, but lucky us – she performs fun, hilarious wedding ceremonies in West Michigan. She even specializes in Micro Weddings, Elopements, and Vow Renewals. Check out Funny Lie Lady Weddings.

The where can be anywhere – your living room during family Christmas, your backyard, a coffee house, or anywhere really. Internet searches and social media can help you find the WHERE.

Get a marriage license. You are required to apply for your marriage license in the county that one of the applicants resides in. Here are links to West Michigan County Clerks to apply for a marriage license:

Allegan County
Barry County
Ionia County
Kent County
Lake County
Mason County
Mecosta County
Montcalm County
Muskegon County
Newaygo County
Oceana County
Osceola County
Ottawa County
