Michigan mini-moon

With the current economy, many brides are finding it difficult to jet off to their dream honeymoon location immediately after their wedding. Instead of a week-long excursion in some far-flung destination, consider a "mini-moon" to a nearby hotel so you and your newly minted husband can revel newlywed bliss. Mitten state brides should look no further than Mackinac Island. A favorite summer spot since the late 19th century, Mackinac Island has kept the style of the Victorian era with its preserved buildings and strict "no cars" rule. You'll get around town by foot, bike, or horse drawn carriage. For a memorable visit, stay at the historic Grand Hotel, which offers majestic views of the island and a renowned dinner menu. —Allison Bean, Editorial Assistant, Brides.com Magazines
