The Grand Hotel - Mackinac Island, Michigan

The Grand Hotel - Mackinac Island, Michigan
The Grand Hotel, home to the longest porch in the world, has provided its guests a stunning escape from reality for nearly 150 years. Couples far and wide choose the island hotel as their ideal wedding destination for its historical charm, elegance, and beauty. 

When you choose a Grand Hotel wedding celebration,...

You’ll leave your vehicle and all your worries behind as you travel to the luscious Mackinac Island by ferry. From the moment you step onto the island, you will feel as if you’ve traveled back in time, riding up to the monumental hotel in a horse-drawn carriage. During your stay at the Grand Hotel, you’ll feel like royalty with white-glove service, modern amenities, and rich historical architecture.

The Grand Hotel offers a highly customizable main wedding package. The hotel staff will work closely with you to plan the wedding and reception of your dreams. And if you’d prefer a more intimate gathering of 2 to 10 guests, you can opt for the Romantic Wedding Package.

After an elegant ceremony on the Grand Hotel porch or in the Tea Garden, you and your loved ones can enjoy an hour-long cocktail reception with a cake, hors d'oeuvres, and alcohol. Here are the main ceremony and cocktail reception venue options:

East or West Front Porch: Our grand 660-foot-long porch is a stunning space for a ceremony with up to 120 guests or cocktail reception with up to 400 guests. Host your celebration on the east porch with a view of the lush Grand Hotel Gardens. Or if you’d rather, say your vows against the backdrop of the Straits of Mackinac on the west side.

Tea Garden: The hotel’s exquisite gardens and stone foundation make for a picture-perfect wedding ceremony, reception, or meal for up to 400 guests.

Cupola Bar: From the fifth and sixth floors of the hotel, mingle with up to 100 guests in a nautical-themed lounge with exceptional panoramic views of the Straits of Mackinac, Round Island Lighthouse, Mackinac Bridge, and downtown Mackinac.

In addition to these venues, the Grand Hotel offers countless uniquely styled rooms for dinners, luncheons, entertainment, dancing, and/or receptions. From the quirky theatre room to the Asian-styled Terrace Room even to the Grand Hotel Stables, the possibilities are endless.
