For decades, Grand Hotel has served as an exceptional locale for countless weddings. Today, we are well prepared to host weddings with up to 450 guests.

Wedding ceremonies are held in two beautiful locations. The legendary Grand Hotel porch is lined with boxes filled with red geraniums. From this one-of-a-kind vantage point, you and your guests can see the Straits of Mackinac, Mackinac Bridge and the Grand Hotel gardens below. A second location, the Grand Hotel Tea Garden, sits amidst the painstakingly maintained flower gardens, and an immense imported stone fountain is the Tea Garden’s centerpiece.

A full-service Aveda salon and flower shop are in the hotel and can be made available to members of your wedding party.

Five formal private dining rooms are available, three of which feature dance floors. Luncheons and dinners are multiple-course, plated meals. Grand Hotel also offers four casual off-site restaurants - The Gate House, Woods, The Jockey Club at The Grand Stand, and Cawthorne's Village Inn - all are perfect for a rehearsal dinner or smaller wedding party.

When my fiancé and I decided to look at venues on the island for our wedding, it was a childhood dream come true to discover that we could afford the Grand Hotel for the small, intimate ceremony and reception that we had envisioned.

From the beginning, the hotel's wedding coordinator Marty was extremely friendly and responsive. She worked with us and our budget even though we were not the "grandest" wedding, and it could not have been easier or turned out better. Seriously, in the months leading up people would ask me with a worried face how the wedding planning was going, and I had to shrug, smile, and say that there was not much for us to do - Marty was taking care of everything!

Laurie and the other staff at Margaret's Garden were more than happy to customize the flowers for us. As two grooms we did not need the bridal bouquet that the "romantic package" includes; we did stick with the classic white hydrangeas and roses although other options were available. We also added a centerpiece for our dinner. All the flowers turned more beautiful than I could have imagined!

From the moment of our arrival, the experience and level of service were top-notch. Our room was gorgeous, the delivery of our luggage perfectly timed, and there were even a few little surprises to make us feel extra special.

We had our ceremony on the west end of the porch in the mid-afternoon and then enjoyed the cake (traditional white cake with lemon buttercream filling - delicious!) and Champagne right there on the porch, as we mingled with our guests and took some more pictures. We then had dinner at the nearby Gate House, where we had booked a private room, and it was also wonderful.

Needless to say, I could not recommend a Grand Hotel wedding more. I only wish I could have Marty plan every event for me and my husband!

If you are considering getting married on Mackinac Island, I wouldn't go anywhere else. The Grand Hotel did everything absolutely perfect - the planning beforehand was very organized. Marty Davis, the only wedding coordinator there, is amazing! She makes sure every detail is taken care of, and then some! Even though we only had 17 people at our wedding she made us feel like we had hundreds - everything was so special for us and carefree once we got there. I didn't have to worry about anything. The florist let us keep our flowers from the rehearsal dinner all the way up to the breakfast after the wedding and moved them for us at no cost. The hair stylist and makeup artist at Astor's Salon didn't mind touching up my hair/makeup before I left, and said I could come back again later if needed. Marty set up and packed up all of my table decorations perfectly. She accidentally ordered a nicer cocktail reception but didn't charge us for it. She was always there when she needed to be. I just can't say anything bad about our wedding at the Grand - it was absolutely perfect and I would do it all over again if I could!

It's the most beautiful location, the best of all worlds...gorgeous, historic hotel with lot's of options for everything you can dream of and it's on gorgeous Mackinac Island...the water background adds a stunning panorama...highly recommend.

So impressed...we will be back, again and again...

Marty arranged our intimate wedding brunch- it was perfect! We were married off site, however, that did not matter to The Grand Hotel. Marty desired to make our wedding day special, which she accomplished 100 fold! Everyone treated us with the upmost respect. Our server, Kevin, was a treasure!! Thank you, Marty, along with the entire staff of The Grand Hotel, whom touched our lives in one way or another, for making our dream come true. Many Blessings- Joan Moser Kuiper

My experience was amazing! We live out of state and had visited Mackinac Island a year earlier knowing that is where we wanted our wedding. I contacted The Grand Hotel and they directed me to Marty Davis. She is absolutely the best - her expert detail planning and suggestions made our wedding day more beautiful than I expected! The staff at The Grand Hotel was outstanding, I'm so glad we chose The Grand.

Once we had the major decisions made, ceremony in the Tea Garden, reception in the Pontiac Room, Marty walked us through the process, visualizing the day from start to finish. She provided lists to choose for our photographer and we couldn't have been more happy with Island Photo! Jeffrey Dupre did an outstanding job and he was so much fun to work with.

I would highly recommend The Grand Hotel. With Marty Davis as your wedding planner you will have an amazing experience!

I cannot speak highly enough about the Grand Hotel. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to get married at the Grand and Marty and the amazing staff at the Grand made it happen. There was not a detail overlooked. They thought of things before I even realized I needed to take care of it. The cake, the flowers, the reception areas, the food, the transportation were all top notch. My dream wedding came true and it was better than I expected.

We've been lucky enough to stay at the Grand Hotel a few times over the years. Once we got engaged, there was no question as to where we wanted to get married. We had a small, intimate ceremony in the Tea Garden with dinner at the Jockey Club. There was nothing that could have made it more perfect! Marty Davis is an outstanding wedding coordinator.

OUTSTANDING! Our wedding AND rehearsal dinner was a dream! I could have not of asked for a better venue. Everything went perfectly and of course was gorgeous! We had our wedding on the west end of the porch and boy was it beautiful! From the time I started planning and until the day of Marty was extremely helpful. She took care of basically everything and helped us book taxis and flowers. I couldn't have asked for anything better! Highly recommend the Grand and Marty! She will take care of all your wedding needs! The flowers were also beyond perfect, Mimi did such a great job with the flowers! I told Mimi to do whatever she thought would work for our bouquets and boy did she knock it out of the park! Very happy with our over all experience! Our rehearsal dinner was at the Gate House and the food was so delicious! It was truly a treat to have my events at this venue! :)

Everything about our wedding experience at the Grand Hotel was perfect! Marty was more than helpful with any questions or concerns we had throughout the entire wedding process. Our flowers from Margaret's Garden were even more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Each and every staff member gave us the best service possible. We could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding at a more beautiful place!
