VIP Section

For our 2017 event we are putting together two special VIP packages. It will include ten tickets, lounge style seating along the runway, table service, a limited quantity of drinks to start your evening, and more.


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


We don’t want you standing in line and missing the show! This year we will be handling payment of drinks with two methods to speed things up:

  • Cash: Cash is always good and accepted at all of the bars at our event.
  • Drink Tickets: If you forgot your cash, or run out, you can purchase drink tickets for $6 each at the coat check with a credit card. The JW also offers an ATM on the main floor of the hotel.

All alcohol drinks will be $6 or one ticket. Non-alcohol drinks will be $3 or 2 for one ticket.

The event will feature four bars in the ballroom and two bars in the pre-event area.


The event is formal, dress up and have a fun night on the town!



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. Head to the event March 4th & 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 and split up the package among yourselves.





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.
