Nestled within the campus of Michigan State University is a garden wonderland where inspiration awaits you!


The Horticulture Gardens of MSU offer a unique, beautiful location for both wedding ceremonies and receptions. In fact, they are recognized as one of the most charming and romantic locations in Lansing! The Horticulture Gardens is also a great location to host your next baby shower, bridal shower, graduation party, banquet, or other events. The possibilities are limitless!


Set amongst thousands of blooming flowers, you will find several picturesque locations designed specifically to host your wedding or other events.


If you are interested in booking a wedding or an event at the Gardens, we highly recommend taking a complimentary private tour first. Simply choose a day and time that works best for you here.


From there, let our experienced staff assist in planning your event -- from tents, tables, and chairs -- to lighting. We can recommend many local companies to complete your planning needs.
