Two Great Locations, One Organization

Weddings

For your special day, plan a wedding made by nature. Set your wedding outdoors in one of our formal gardens or spaces, or indoors amid the lush tropical setting of the Conservatory. We offer seven distinct spaces, including a fragrant Herb Knot Garden, colorful Perennial Garden, the serene and intimate Willow Pond Island, or the summer-blooming Gateway Garden. See the chart below for more information on our rates and venues. All outdoor weddings include an indoor backup space in case of inclement weather.

Planning a reception? The auditorium at Matthaei Botanical Gardens is available. Rental fee is $1,000 (does not include catering). Email or call our wedding coordinator (lmneely@umich.edu; 734.647.7808) or request wedding information and we’ll follow up with you shortly.
