with traveling to and from the northern tip of lower Michigan?

I just found out the wedding I mentioned yesterday is going to be in Petoskey, MI, and I have no fucking clue how I'm going to get up there on a budget. Flying in isn't an option as my two go-to airports both have prices of around $450 roundtrip. Ouch.

I can probably get myself to Chicago pretty easily, but after that, I don't know what to do. Any ideas? I'm not afraid of riding the bus and I'm 25, so I can rent a car if it comes to that. Halp!
