SBW: Coffee & Conversation!

Last month, we hosted a meet & greet for our Northern Michigan wedding vendors to help us celebrate the future of Simply Blue Weddings. It gave our local vendors a chance to connect with other passionate professionals in our local wedding industry and hear more about what's to come for Simply Blue Weddings. We talked a little about the purpose of Simply Blue and how our local professionals could be a part of it!

Despite the nasty weather that evening, we had a wonderful turnout and an even more wonderful response to the changes around SBW. We hope to host more events like this in the future that give our local weddings vendors a chance to connect, collaborate, and grow together. Read to the bottom for a little more information on the launch of our vendor guide!  


We had so many wonderful vendors who so graciously helped bring our event together, and we want to give them a HUGE thank you. We truly wouldn't have been able to pull it off without their help!

Many of you have already inquired and expressed interest in becoming a Northern Michigan vendor. Thank you! We are so excited to bring you an intentionally curated vendor guide, one that showcases an elite group of professionals who are looking to take our local industry to the next level.

We will be launching a marketing kit for our vendor guide in just a few short weeks. It will detail all the information you need to know about the vendor guide and how to get involved. If you’re not already on the email list you can subscribe on our homepage. Once subscribed you will receive updates when the marketing kit and vendor guide launch. If you've already inquired about becoming a vendor, you are already on the email list! We will be in touch through our newsletter with further details once the guide launches. 

Northern Michigan wedding season is upon us!
