We chose Grand Hotel as the location for our wedding ceremony and it was honestly, our best decision. Not just because the setting is absolutely picture perfect in the Tea Garden but the staff ensures things are just how you want it. Once we arrived I did not worry about what the guys were doing, where we needed to be, if the flowers were ready because of how well Marty, the wedding coordinator, has everything arranged.

I had my wedding at the Grand Hotel this past fall and it is a perfect memory I will have forever. The wedding coordinator knew exactly what to do, she took a lot of the stress right off my shoulders. She made the day sail by without a single flaw. The staff at the hotel was extremely helpful and kind. The food was delicious. Mackinac Island it self is a beautiful place to get married but having the ceremony on the Grand Hotels front porch made it that much more special. Looking back I feel like it was all a dream.

I chose the Grand Hotel because of it's iconic beauty and complete packages of services. I was not disappointed. It was so convenient to order everything from the hotel- and the service and quality of the product was so perfect that it was absolutely worth every penny. Even when it rained on the day of my wedding, the wedding coordinator made quick and effective decisions and ensured that everything ran smoothly.
My guests loved having everything within walking distance on the island, and were blown away by the our ceremony (originally scheduled for the tea garden, but held on the porch due to rain), reception, and plated lunch (in the Pontiac room). They also enjoyed that there was something to do for everyone on the island, so that the trek to the moderately remote location of Mackinac Island was worth it.
Bottom line: it's worth it. This is the BEST location on the island, and one of the finest in the entire country. They made the wedding a major success, and I can not be more grateful. Though it may seem pricey, it was really not much more expensive than this quality of service and product would be at another venue, and it was worth it for the peace of mind that comes with the Grand Hotel name.
