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 husband and I were married at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in September 2014. We had an amazing experience. Marty, the wedding coordinator, did a wonderful job coordinating the wedding and the venue (it rained on our wedding day and Marty made sure we had a back up venue if needed and directed all our guests to the venue area). I did not have to worry about a thing on our wedding day, because Marty already had everything covered. We had the best wedding day and the cake was delicious too!

We used the space at the Tea Room up in Fort Mackinac. Our family had eaten there once and fallen in love with the view - the entire downtown was laid out in front of us with breathtaking sights of the harbor and, my favorite, the Might Mac. We enjoyed a delicious lunch topped off with one of the most enjoyable desserts on the island - the Pecan Ball! The staff was so friendly and courteous during the event, and the director Marty was always quick to respond and so helpful in all of the plans. Highly recommended for any events!

Best thing about our wedding was our reheasal dinner at the Grand Hotel. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff is very attentive to each and every guest. The buffet was huge and had some of the most delicious food. My favorite was the fresh whitefish which is a specialty in Northern MI. We have decided for our 5 year anniversary we will return and stay at the famous hotel.

We were considering several venues for our wedding (in Michigan, Florida, South Carolina, New York and other states) but choosing the Grand Hotel turned out to be the best decision. From the moment we (bride, groom and the guests) arrived at the hotel, it felt like a fairy tale. We were accommodated in a great suite and offered a complimentary champagne. The premises and the whole area around the hotel make you not even want to go anywhere else. This place has everything for you and your guests to have fun: a nice outdoor swimming pool; a beautiful tea garden with lots of flowers; breathtaking views of the Mackinac Straits from the historic Porch; great restaurants with superb service; beauty salon; flower shop that can provide for the most demanding brides. I loved the convenience of having everything right on the spot (the hotel provided the wedding coordinator, musicians, great ceremony and reception venues, florist and beauty services). They also provided a list of recommended photographers and ministers (the ones we chose turned out to be really good). I have awesome memories about our wedding weekend at the Grand Hotel. After having analyzed tons of information about wedding venues and compared a lot of hotels, I can say with confidence that the Grand Hotel is absolutely the best place to have your wedding in Michigan. The place you and your guests will remember for many years. The Grand Hotel staff was extremely helpful during wedding planning (I was living abroad at that time and that made wedding preparations a bit more complex as I could not meet any vendors in person before the wedding). My every request was taken into account and the wedding turned out great. I highly recommend the Grand Hotel and their team!

If you want to feel like royalty on your special day this is THE place. While the prices can seem a bit overwhelming at first, keep in mind that you do not have to figure in rentals for tables, chairs, linens, etc; and you get the BEST wedding planner ever in Marty Haines. Having everything from catering, the salon, and flowers all handled by one place makes it so simple. I planned our wedding while finishing law school and would not have been able to make the day more perfect without Marty's help. She had everything totally under control. I had absolutely ZERO stress the day of the wedding. We used the Front Porch for our ceremony and the Cupola for our reception. The girls in the salon were fantastic, and the florists were very accommodating, and understanding of budget.

Also, we had originally made reservations to use a "named suite" (hoping for the Vanderbilt room) and were upgraded graciously by the Musser family into the newest Dan Musser suite. It honestly could not have been a more perfect weekend!

I got married October 20th, 2012 at Ste. Anne's Church in Mackinac Island, MI and the reception was at the Grand Hotel. My wedding was PERFECT. Everything was classy and stylish. My day was happy, beautiful, the weather was beautiful, the fall colors were amazing, everything ran smoothly, on time, my flowers were stunning, the decorations were stunning, the food was timely and hot and AMAZING, my cake was stunning. Planning a wedding here was so easy because the wedding coordinator Marty Haines was sooo good! She is funny and charming and you will adore her personality and she also GETS IT DONE. I was so impressed with everything from beginning to end. A lot of brides get married and they say, "Everything was great except....." I have NO except. My day was perfect. A Grand Hotel wedding is very special, and you will feel magical on your big day at the Grand Hotel. I had numerous people come up to me and say that it was the best wedding they had ever been to.

I have nothing but good things to say about my wedding that was held at The Grand Hotel this August. I live in Las Vegas, NV and planned my wedding for a year, with a help of the wedding coordinator at the hotel. The venue, the flowers, the cake, the catering, the hair and makeup...it was all done at the hotel. Everything went off without a hitch! It rained, and my coordinator was prepared, moving the reception indoors a couple hours before the ceremony. It might have been a stressful moment, but everything was handled well. The staff is most professional and attentive, but that's what you get when you go to The Grand Hotel. I would highly recommend it. Rain or shine, it's a beautiful place to get married!
