From bridal party pampering to honeymoon suites, the Grand America Hotel has it all. If you’re looking for an elegant and luxurious venue to host your wedding, The Grand America is your place. Their staff makes the process of planning your Grand America hotel wedding a piece of cake (no pun intended) by providing in-house floral services and amazing catering. I’m grateful for the opportunity to have spoken with Becky about amenities and other details you won’t want to miss when it comes to your wedding at the Grand America Hotel. Check out the questions and answers below for more info on this gorgeous venue in Salt Lake City.

 

Payment, Rental Fee & Vendors

  1. How many people can your location accommodate?
    • The Grand America Hotel has several ballrooms that can accommodate anywhere from 10-1,200 people!
  2. What is the rental fee, and what’s included in that price?
    • We waive the rental fee for any room if the food minimum is met. We will discuss that individually with each couple.
  3. Do you accept payment plans?
    • No; we take 25% deposit of anticipated revenue up front, and full payment is due the week prior.
  4. What’s your weather backup plan for outdoor spaces?
    • We won’t contract outside unless we have a weather backup.
  5. Do you have an in-house caterer or a list of “preferred” caterers, or does the couple need to provide their own? If there is an in-house caterer, does the couple have the option of using an outside caterer instead?
    • We require all food and beverage are provided by The Grand America Hotel.
  6. Can the couple hire their own vendors or is there a preferred vendor list they need to stick to?
    • We have a preferred list, but the couple is welcome to use their own vendors if they prefer, outside of food and beverage.
