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.

My beautiful bride and I recently became one during the 2016 "Somewhere in Time" weekend! It was truly a magical experience that was a perfect complement to our engagement behind the Hollywood sign! We couldn't have been happier with the beautiful views from our suite, or the exemplary services provided by Marty Davis and the Grand Hotel staff throughout!

Originally, we had anticipated getting married in 2017. But we had a change of heart that was skillfully handled by Marty Davis and her staff. They flawlessly executed our agreed upon plan, and even some details that were sprung upon them at the last minute. Somehow, Marty was even able to get the weather to cooperate with us for an outdoor wedding in October!

The Grand Hotel is a very romantic venue situated on a picturesque island that is a reminder of simpler times. From the sounds of horses hooves pulling carriages, to the spectacular views of Lake Michigan, to the ambiance of the Grand Hotel itself, one will luxuriate in the opulence of this venue. If one's desire is to create a beautiful, lifetime memory, please contact Marty to begin planning that special day!

A dream come true!

I feel incredibly thankful and fortunate that I was blessed to have my wedding on the porch at Grand Hotel, and that Marty the wedding coordinator was there every step of the way. After trying to plan a wedding in my hometown, planning this wedding with her by my side was a piece of cake! Everything went off without a hitch, the weather was perfect, and the grounds, scenery, and the hotel itself were like something out of a storybook.

We had our reception at The Gate House and our guests were thrilled with their options, and the food and drinks were delightful.

I'm not exaggerating when I say my wedding day was truly a dream come true, and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. My husband and I were extraordinarily impressed and hope to make a tradition out of visiting on anniversaries and with our own little family someday! Thank you so much!

We had our rehearsal dinner at the Grand Hotel's Gate House, and it was seamlessly planned with the help of the Grand's wedding coordinator Marty. Planning a dinner - from the food, drinks, and flowers - from so far away was made as easy as possible with Marty's expertise, quick responses, and professionalism. We had a perfect dinner, and the guests loved the food. The staff were also kind and attentive to all of our needs. My bridal suite was also at the Grand, and the gorgeous room and service was the cherry on top of a wonderful weekend. One of their named rooms was the perfect place for my bridesmaids and I to get ready in. My mother, maid of honor and I also had our hair done at Astor's Salon, and we love our experience. We even had coffee and breakfast in the salon to enjoy as our hair was done. I wouldn't change a thing, and I highly recommend the Grand's services.

We recently got married at the Grand Hotel Stables. The view from the center of the stables is amazing and the older carriages add a unique touch. Even tho we are from Mackinac Island, having Marty, the wedding coordinator, was great. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very prompt on answering all questions and last minute changes. She is very professional. The staff was a pleasure to work with as all. From the coordinators and stable staff to the ladies in Margaret's Garden. We received lots of compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was in the Stables and how wonderful the flowers were. I would recommend the Grand Hotel & their ceremony locations to anyone looking to get married on Mackianc Island. A big thank you to the staff for making sure our special day was amazing!

This was truly our Fairy Tale Wedding we had only been able to dream about. Grand Hotel was the perfect destination to celebrate our wedding and can't begin to give them the accolades they truly deserve. We decided to get married at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island for the small island and iconic experience only Grand Hotel can provide and everything on all levels exceeded any expectation we may have had. Marty was our wedding coordinator and I think she just has to be about the greatest coordinator out there! Marty literally can do it all with such professional and personal customer service! We only had four months to plan the wedding and I really didn't have much to do - Marty, you are amazing!! Her suggestions on the few things I did need to decide on were spot on! Everything she did was perfectly executed and there was nothing she wouldn't do to make our experience just absolutely perfect. I also want to give a major shout out to Margaret's Garden as well. Laurie is truly a bouquet genius and truly made me the most stunning bouquet I have ever seen! Being from Maui I really wanted an orchid tropical bouquet and Laurie went out of her way to order the most stunning flowers I have ever seen and couldn't tell me enough how excited she was to create a one of a kind orchid bouquet! Her artistry and aesthetic had so much genuine pride in what she created! Astor’s Salon was also great and everyone loved all of their hair and makeup. There is no amount of thanks I can give to Grand Hotel, Marty and Laurie. To put it all in perspective, when anyone found out I was getting married while we were on Mackinac Island, they all asked why I was so calm and not stressed out at all - Thank you to Marty at Grand Hotel to keep her Brides only focused on her wedding and marrying her one and only and giving us the Fairy Tale Wedding we wanted! We just can’t wait to come back and celebrate our anniversaries with Grand Hotel.

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!

I am from Texas and had never heard of Mackinac Island or Grand Hotel before I met my husband. From the beginning of our relationship, he went on and on about the magic of the island and how picturesque it is. I google Grand Hotel and immediately fell in love. I knew that he was the one and Grand Hotel was where I wanted the reception, specifically the Theatre.

Marty, the wedding coordinator at Grand Hotel, was so easy to work with. Again, being from Texas, she made the planning a breeze. From booking the venue, to the final table count, Marty was always in constant communication, making sure we got exactly what we wanted.

The design of a Grand Hotel wedding is basically a one stop shop. They had options for food, cake, music, and flowers. It was all delicious and beautiful, as well as stress free! Thank you Grand Hotel for making our wedding day truly memorable!

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!
