From engagement parties to bridal showers and bachelorette parties, your memories and celebrations start before you walk down the aisle. The great news is, as the bride, your friends, family, and venue will help plan these memorable events for you.
As far as venues go, The Grand America Hotel is a perfect choice for any wedding celebration in Utah. Here at Utah Bride & Groom, we met with their expert team to talk about hosting a pre-wedding event at The Grand.
“With intimate spaces and custom catering, The Grand is an elegant canvas for engagement parties, bridal showers and rehearsal dinners,” says Jennie Peterson, Catering Sales Manager.
“As a full-service luxury hotel, the possibilities are endless at the Grand. We strive to make pre-wedding events truly special not only for the bride but her friends and family too,” says Peterson. The Grand America’s Catering Team is part of Utah’s inaugural chapter of WIPA (Wedding International Professionals Association).
Q: What unique pre-wedding events does The Grand host?
The Grand’s guestrooms, including Kitchen Suites or the Spa Suite, offer downtown accommodations for bachelorette parties. In-room VIP amenities like champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, and macaron favors elevate the bachelorette getaway.
Bridal parties will enjoy The Grand Spa’s Salon while the special couple can relax together with the signature Couple’s Massage. With a serene indoor pool, saunas and lounges, guests can spend the entire day relaxing before the big day.
Q: What pre-wedding event trends have you seen at the hotel?
“Afternoon Tea for bridal showers has been an increasingly popular experience to celebrate the bride. The Garden Cafe’s crowd-favorite Sunday Brunch is the perfect setting for a gourmet farewell wedding brunch,” said Peterson.
So whether it’s a bridal shower, spa day or farewell brunch, The Grand America Hotel is a go-to destination for any wedding-related event. Their attention to detail will not only take the planning stress away from these events but will make it a special day for you to remember.
