For decades, Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan has served as an exceptional locale for countless weddings. Today, we are well prepared to host weddings with up to 450 guests.
Ceremonies are held in two beautiful locations. The legendary Grand Hotel Front Porch is an unforgettable setting, lined with boxes filled with the hotel's signature flower, 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 lush flower gardens, with an immense imported stone fountain as the Tea Garden’s centerpiece.
Five formal private dining rooms are available, three with dance floors. Luncheons and dinners are multiple-course, plated meals. Grand Hotel also offers four casual off-site restaurants - The Gate House, Woods Restaurant, The Jockey Club at The Grand Stand, and Cawthorne's Village Inn - all are perfect for a rehearsal dinner or smaller wedding party.
Automobiles are not allowed on Mackinac, where slower, more leisurely modes of transportation—horse-drawn carriages and bicycles are common. There are countless activities in which your guests can partake, from 18 holes of golf on The Jewel to the island’s many attractions. A full-service Aveda salonand spa and flower shop are in the hotel and can be made available to members of your wedding party.
Marty Haines, our specially trained Wedding Coordinator, will handle every detail, including cakes, floral arrangements, and music. Grand Hotel chefs can create a menu to satisfy your tastes, and The Grand Hotel Orchestra can provide live entertainment. It all makes for a special celebration everyone in attendance won't forget.
