2018 Wedding Show at the Packard Proving Grounds

Facebook Event Link

Take an early walk down the aisle and check out lots of great wedding vendors including caterers, florists, hotels, equipment rental companies, linen rentals, photographers, event and ‘day-of’ planners and designers, bakeries, invitation consultants, salons, musicians, and many more interesting genres of event services and products will be showcased.

This year the event will be expanded to two buildings, plus there will be an opportunity to check out the classic Packard cars that can be on display during weddings. It’s a great time to decide on your favorites.

Another perk of this show is that upcoming wedding couples will have the opportunity to network with couples recently married at the site, who are excited to share their experiences plus some may have gently used wedding decor items for sale.

Couples can attend this event, interact with the vendors and attendees and effectively accomplish quite a few wedding prep tasks in one time and place.

This spectacular 17 acre site is rich in Detroit automotive history and was established in 1928 by The Packard Motor Car Company and celebrating it’s 90th anniversary this year. The tree-lined boulevard is adjacent to multiple Albert Kahn designed buildings, and the proceeds from events held on the grounds help with ongoing restoration work at the site. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Packard Motor Car Foundation is a non-profit 501c3.
