Q: How would you best describe The Grand Hotel to potential couples?
A: “There has always been something magical about a grand Southern wedding, and nowhere does this spirit shine more splendidly than at the Grand. With its wondrous elixir of gracious traditions, glorious settings, and personal touches, the Grand has played host to inspired celebrations for decades. Imagine Now and Forever framed against a gracious Gulf Coast setting where every detail is attended to in contemporary perfection. Best of all, our certified wedding specialists ensure the day is as individual as you are – truly a day to cherish.”
Q: What amenities could a group of bridesmaids enjoy together?
A: “As a dynamic destination, the Grand has activities for every taste and pace. Bridesmaids can enjoy time together on one of our golf courses, pickleball courts, or championship croquet lawns, as well as lounging in a bayside cabana or being pampered at our Grand Spa. Beyond our grounds, explore the eminently walkable Fairhope, recognized as one of the most charming small towns in America, with its own French Quarter as well as numerous intriguing restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques.”
Q: What would you recommend to a bride looking to plan a girl’s trip?
A: “It is important to schedule enough time during this special occasion to shop in Fairhope, spend a day in the spa, and lounge around the pool to create new memories at the Grand.”
