Considering getting married in South Haven?
For years, brides and grooms have chosen South Haven as a preferred location to exchange their vows. Using Lake Michigan and South Haven’s Lighthouse as the background, couples create memories to be cherished for a lifetime.

If you are considering holding your wedding in a park or on the beach, we ask that you read the following:

  • All of our parks and beaches are free for public use. 
  • All parks and beaches are on a "first come, first served" basis. Therefore, we cannot keep the public from being there.
  • We like to put your name on our calendar to ensure there is no other event taking place in the same spot at the same time.
  • All decorations brought in for the ceremony must be removed after the ceremony. ie. arches, chairs, flowers, ribbons, etc.
  • You are allowed to set up two (2) 10x10 tents/canopies.
  • No alcoholic beverages are permitted.
  • No fire or open flames are allowed.
  • The pay and park program at the beach is in effect until 6:00 p.m. every day. Click Here for more information on beach parking.
  • Please see the two (2) links under Weddings on the left side of the page - or below -  for more rules and guidelines when using the City's parks or beaches.
