My groom and I used the Detroit Yacht Club for our reception. Everything was beautiful and the managers there were very helpful. One thing to look out for is that the waiters were a little quick to clear the tables. Other than that, we had a ball and you can't beat that beautiful view! Also, the prices are very reasonable. We are talking about having my parents' 50th wedding anniversary there in two years.

The DYC is a beautiful place for a wedding. Emily B. is one of the wedding coordinators there, and she is amazing! Everyone was helpful, patient, and professional. Do not let the look of some parts of Belle Isle scare you. The DYC is a gem. Getting married in front of the grand fireplace made for great pictures.

Helpful tip-bring signs for your guests that direct them to the DYC. There are two ways to get there, and it can kind of be confusing to guests who have never been on the island.

The DYC was our dream venue, and in order to make that happen, we decided to DIY a LOT of other elements. Luckily, the staff was fantastic to work with through the process and all of my constant questions. Emily was incredibly helpful. All of my emails were answered fully and in a timely manner. They were also very accommodating for pre-wedding meetings on site.

The ambiance can't be matched. We had our ceremony outdoors and chose the ballroom for our reception, and were so happy. The veranda was incredibly charming for cocktail hour.

The food was very good, especially the short rib (other guests claimed it was all amazing, and may have had access to better potatoes in a later batch!)

The night went smoothly, thanks to the great staff. They handled delays, guests, and other issues with stride.

I can't imagine having our wedding anywhere else.

The DYC was amazing - it had everything that my husband and I were looking for when we were shopping around for a reception venue - this included a balcony and Oberon on tap :) We were in the grand ballroom and it is just beautiful. Our guests were in awe and loved the atmosphere during our reception. Alix was amazing. She answered numerous questions, promptly responded to emails (even on her day off), and overall was a pleasure to work with.

The DYC was a gorgeous space for our wedding. We had the large ballroom without air and while it was a humid day, it wasn't too bad inside. The air really did flow. The coordinators were amazing. Jennifer even helped steam my bridesmaids dresses. The location and views are awesome and my guests were amazed at how beautiful the DYC was. Almost forgot....the food was AWESOME. We had chicken and short ribs and the meat was super tender and flavorful!!!!

I did have a slight problem with a worker at the DYC trying to walk down the isle during the bridal processional!!! But I am going to blame his lack of judgement on him and NOT the DYC.

We were very pleased with the Detroit Yacht Club. We held the ceremony & reception on July 31, 2011 at this venue. The staff was extremely professional and the food was wonderful. It was worth every penny we spent and the DYC is beautiful inside and out with may photo opportunities. If we had to do it all over again we would not hesitate to choose the DYC. Plus our guests are still talking about it!

P.S. It was very helpful to use vendors from their preferred vendor list

I had my wedding at the DYC and it was PERFECT. Carly was always very responsive to any of my questions or requests. The food was amazing -- I'm still getting comments on it from my guests. The venue itself is beautiful and my guests loved being able to walk out to the veranda and look at all the boats and river.
So glad I had my wedding here!

Had our wedding reception at the DYC in June of 2011. Food was great and the place was beautiful, but they screwed up some of the little things.

For instance, they had picture frames to use as table number holders. So instead of putting plain old numbers in each frame, we thought it would be cool to put different photographs of my wife and I in each frame of the places we've been together, and then tell our guests to sit at the New York table or the Comerica Park table. Jennifer from the DYC told us weeks before the wedding that our idea was fine. I personally met with Jennifer from the DYC the day before the wedding and gave her the pictures and reminded her of the plan. When we arrived at the reception, however, we saw that the DYC hadn't bothered to put the pictures in the frames. They just placed the photos on each table. It looked really cheap. Jennifer approached me during the reception and asked how everything was going, and I asked about the pictures. She said she would check on it, and then I never saw her again that night. The pictures were never fixed. It sounds small, but it's really annoying when you spend the time planning out the little things like this and then someone screws it up.

Our reception was in the big room without air conditioning, and it was especially hot that day. Unfortunately, the overhead fans were not working. It was extremely hot and stuffy without the fans.

Also, the florist's table lights went missing after the reception. Not sure if that's the florist's fault or the DYC's fault.

Overall I would recommend the DYC, but I was disappointed with some things.

We used the larger of the two ballrooms, the one without air conditioning and it was the right choice. It's such a lovely space, I would have put up with a little heat (reception was in August), but the ventillation was just fine. Jennifer McDonald and her staff did a great job for us - especially Irwin, the banquet captain. We were able to sample different entree choices months before the reception (all yummy, by the way). We even met the head chef, who answered all our questions and even agreed to make small changes for us. Great job DYC!

The DYC is an absolutely gorgeous venue and really created the perfect atmosphere for the day. There are two rooms, the Fountain Room and the Ballroom. We had ours in the ballroom, which is a large, open room with wood floors, white plaster walls, and dark wood frames. It was gorgeous. There are two women who I dealt with during the process, Julia and Jennifer (mostly Julia). They both answer emails quickly and are very helpful. Julia was there the day of as well as a head of ceremony guy.

Of course, the DYC does have some major drawbacks. The first one is that the there is no A/C in the Ballroom. Our wedding was in May on a day in the 70s and wasn't a problem. You are right on the water, have the large doors that catch a breeze outside, but I wouldn't chance it in July.

Then the setup of the Ballroom is a little different. You have the eating area and then the part past those archways is the dancing area. Outside is a veranda with tables and chairs. It was such a perfect evening that a lot of our guests spent a large part of the night outside, smoking cigars, watching the sunset, and enjoying the night instead of dancing. We had a good number on the dance floor, but the dance foor is so big, it can feel lonely. People kept coming up to me to tell me how the venue was gorgeous and how the night was perfect outside, so I didn't care. But if you want people dancing and not outside, be warned.

Also, we got married during Memorial Day Weekend. Right outside there was a pool party with jazz/blues music. We could actually hear it during the ceremony. I actually liked that; I got to hear music without paying for it. It calmed me down because I thought it was funny. However, I'm sure that would piss off a lot of people.

Finally, the food was excellent. We got a duel plate, with salmon, braised short rib, red skins potatoes, and veggies, and it was so much frickin' food. Huge. And delish. Again, I had a number of people coming up and saying how tender the meat was or how they never liked salmon before. Even weeks after, people are still saying it was the best food ever and how pretty the venue was.

All in all, I wouldn't change a thing. Love them, love the place.

The Detroit Yacht Club is one of those magical places that always says yes. "Can we have the wedding and the reception here?" "YES!" "Can we mix & match the duet entrees?" "YES!" We were simply amazed by the quality of service and attention to detail. Jennifer, one of the DYC's full time event coordinators, led us through the planning as the weeks went by. Also, she was there for the rehearsal and reception to make sure things went smoothly. It was basically like having our own wedding planner for no extra cost!

The food was also amazing--a wide variety of choices (both served and buffet), and of the best quality. As mentioned above, we were able to mix and match what we offered our guests, and tailor everything to our exact wishes.

Finally, the venue is simply amazing for photography. The building is gorgeous, and you can also have photos taken out front or by the boats on the back pier. If you're looking for an elegant, easy wedding, this is the place!

The DYC is the perfect place for a summer evening wedding. The grand ballroom with the wrap-around veranda really has a guest-friendly layout. People can be inside or out- and it still feels like one big party. I love the pricing at the DYC. Everything is included- even tax and gratuity, in the per head price. So all you have to to is multiply by the number of guests and you've got your number- no last minute add ons or surprises. We got married on a friday and saved a TON of money. The food was outstanding. We both cleaned our plates and received many rave reviews from our guests. We had a dual entree on chicken princess and michigan whitefish and I would recommend both! As far as room set-up goes, we had a lot of special instructions and the DYC followed most of them to a "T." The room looked exactly how I'd envisioned it and they helped us take our guests back in time to "old detroit."

The room looked exactly how I'd envisioned it and they helped us take our guests back in time to "old detroit." Read less

The location was beautiful and required minimal decorations. The staff that helped was also very accommodating. I met the chef and was able to have an entirely different meal than everyone else at the wedding (I like to eat healthy). The woman incharge of our wedding was wonderful, she made computerized drawings of how the room could be set up, she was always available on the phone, and was there during the reception to make sure everything ran smoothly. They also had a man who walked me through the cake cutting, and when to do such and such that I didn't have to worry about anything.

Such a beautiful venue. The Detroit Yacht Club was something I dreamed of as a little girl, absolutely wonderful, unique and a terrific value. Carly was overly accomodating about everything! Anything we asked for, she made it happen. Our wedding has been the only wedding we've been to at the DYT, but I would LOVE to go back again soon.

The Detroit Yacht Club is an amazing and beautiful location for a reception. All the planning up until the wedding was a breeze! Carly is an amazing person to work with at the Detroit Yacht Club and responds very quickly with any questions you may have (I asked question mainly through e-mail). The cost at the Detroit Yacht Club is pricey, but we were married on a Friday so the price included everything per person (meaning tax and gratuity). We had a smaller wedding of 120 people and were in the ballroom. We were worried that the room may seem empty because it was a large room, but the yacht club set up the room perfectly! The bar service was amazing, the food was to die for, and it is a very friendly atmosphere for a private club. I would HIGHLY recommend the DYC!!!!!!

The staff at the Yacht Club was amazing and attentive to our every need. We worked with one staff member (Jennifer) almost exclusively and she was great. When the time came for our actual wedding ceremony, she told us that she was going home for the night and introduced us to the catering guy that was in charge for the night. But she stayed around for hours longer to ensure that everything was going perfectly.
The cost was relatively low for all of the services that we received and the room was stunning. People still talk about what a great wedding it was years later!
