2016 Date Packages

As the event planning progresses we will post information on the Bachelors & Bachelorettes and their date packages here.

More to be posted as the event draws near.



The event will be held in the grand ball room at the JW Marriott in Grand Rapids, MI.

More information will be posted as the event planning progresses.



One Package :: Three Ways

A simple guide to bidding at the event

You’ve bought your tickets, found that perfect event attire, and have viewed the Bid Facebook Page to see the Bachelors & Bachelorettes. All there is to do is head to the event March 7th & bid on your favorite date packages. From boat charters to spa days, Bid has something for everyone.

“BUT how do I bid,” you ask?

There are 3 ways you can purchase a BID date package: individual, couple or group. Read below to see where you think you fit.

INDIVIDUAL If you find a date package or date you would like to purchase, feel free to place the winning BID all on your own.
COUPLE If you find a date package that interests you, your significant other, or a friend, you can either purchase as a couple, or with a friend.
GROUP There is a date package that you have your eye on, but there are way too many activities to do on your own, or it is a little out of your price range. Get a GROUP of your friends or those at your table to go in and bid on the date package. It will be up to your group to split the date package the best way it suits your group.


Coming soon.
