The quiet, leafy haven of Nichols Arboretum creates an intimate backdrop for the smaller wedding, with accommodations for up to 100 guests. For guest lists of 40-100 we recommend the hillside overlooking the Peony Garden; the Main/East valleys; the amphitheater; and the Dow Prairie overlook just east of the amphitheater. For guests lists of 40 or fewer we recommend the Heathdale, School Girls Glen Overlook, and the riverfront along the Huron River. Note that weddings only are permitted in the Arboretum (no receptions).

Parking is available for free weekdays after 5 pm and weekends in U-M blue lots on Washington Hts. above the Ronald MacDonald House and off Nichols Dr. below the U-M Hospital on E. Medical Center Dr. Prior to 5 pm weekdays a U-M blue permit is required. Paid parking is available in the hospital P2 parking structure.
