About Grand Hotel

For over 130 years, Grand Hotel — America’s Summer Place located on Mackinac Island in Northern Michigan — has been an exceptional and memorable wedding destination for many couples. As a National Historic Landmark we pride ourselves on the details and making sure your wedding is something you will never forget.

We are able to host celebrations for up to 400 guests, with an array of unique locations and dining options available. Wedding ceremonies are traditionally held in two outdoor locations. The Grand Hotel Front Porch — the longest in the world — is lined with red geraniums, our signature flower. From this one-of-a-kind vantage point, take in views of the Straits of Mackinac, Mackinac Bridge, and the hotel gardens below. A second location, the Grand Hotel Tea Garden, sits amidst the meticulously manicured flower gardens with panoramic views looking up at the hotel.

Five formal, private dining rooms are available for your reception, three of which feature dance floors. Each room is different and provides distinctive décor and amenities. We also offer five off-site restaurants for rehearsal dinners or small intimate gatherings.

Make any celebration brighter with fresh flower arrangements from Margaret’s Garden, Grand Hotel’s full-service floral shop. Margaret’s Garden offers an extensive selection of flowers and experienced, professional staff ready to provide personalized, quality service.

Our talented chefs create delicious menus to satisfy every taste. Friendly, professional staff ensures no detail, or guest, is overlooked. We also offer a wide variety of customizable cocktail reception and hors d’oeuvre choices for your event.

In addition, Grand Hotel’s skilled pastry chef is flexible and creative and can help design a beautiful wedding cake or desserts for your special day.

Have you always dreamed of a fairy tale wedding? Here on Mackinac Island (where cars are not allowed), transportation is primarily by horse-drawn carriage. We recommend reserving the Grand Hotel Omnibus or Victoria Carriage for your wedding day transportation — and a truly enchanting experience.

Pamper and prepare your wedding party at Astor’s Salon and Spa, our full-service Aveda Salon. Step back in time at historic Fort Mackinac and a horse-drawn carriage tour. And keep your guests engaged with everything from 18 holes of golf on The Jewel, to over 70 miles of paved and unpaved trails to explore on bikes or by foot.

The Grand Hotel wedding team is here to help ensure your special day is genuinely unforgettable. Well versed in every aspect of wedding planning, they will handle the planning and execution of all Grand Hotel’s services from beginning to end.

We would be honored to be part of your special day.
