Have you ever made someone’s day special? In my last blog I wrote how everyone loves getting something extra because it makes them feel special as if someone went out of their way for them. But at the Lilac Tree Suites, we don’t feel that we’re going out of our way to make someone feel special. It’s just how we roll.
When people get engaged, they feel special and the excitement builds as they anticipate their big day. It’s a really great feeling to be able to offer people a great time, and a fantastic atmosphere where they can celebrate the biggest day in their life. If you recently got engaged, CONGRATULATIONS! You’re starting to plan ahead and are beginning to look at your options to decide where your marriage dreams can become a reality. My daughters are now young adults and three of them are married to great guys. A few years go oneof my daughters asked what’s one thing I would wish for if it could come true. Was it money, fame? Without hesitation, I told her that I would wish to go back in time when she was a little girl again so we could spend one magical day together like we did years ago. One magical day.
If you’re engaged, I’m sure you don’t want to go back to when you were little, but you can go back in time for yourwedding day because on Mackinac Island, it’s like stepping back in time for this magical day of your life. OurDirector of Sales and Wedding Coordinator, Nikki Gugin, says it best; “This is a very exciting time for you and your family! We’re happy for you and we’re here to do what it takes to make your wedding dreams come true for 2016!” With all of the decisions that you have to make, let’s start with the perfect accommodations for you and your guests.

How about being pampered before your big day? Our Lilac Tree Suites is also home to the Lilac Tree Spa. Relax in style as you and your bridesmaids get pampered with a well-deserved spa treatment- you deserve it! Or,how about a couple’s massage with your brand new spouse? It’ll make everything heavenly for you and even more memorable as you begin your new life with your match made in heaven. Okay, I talked about our perfect hotels to stay while you’re here and getting the perfect spa treatments but you’re probably thinking, “Okay, but where do I get married and have my perfect reception?” Funny you should ask.
What could be better for you and your guests that enjoying breath-taking views of Lake Huron in all its glory as you celebrate your special day on Mackinac Island? You were destined to be married to that perfect someone so the perfect location for your Destination Mackinac Wedding is the Pink Pony Restaurant proudly located inside our sister hotel, The Chippewa Hotel and Waterfront.
