Hi, just wondering how large is the Gazebo?
Our gazebos entry arch is 8 1/2 high, 9 1/2 wide. There are (8) columns which are 3 1/2 feet in diameter. You are welcome to decorate the Gazebo but we ask that nothing be nailed. You will need to bring your own ladder and are responsible for the set up and removal of any gazebo decorations.
Your outdoor gazebo area looks fantastic to have our wedding – but since this is Michigan we are wondering what happens if it should rain?
We try everything in our power to accommodate an inside alternative should inclement weather occur. There are a few considerations, the size of the weddings and what banquet halls are in use for the day. We can seat up to 150 in the lower Reflection Hall as a chapel. We can also hold the ceremony under the covered patio area if weather permits. If all rooms are booked and weather does not permit, we set up your ceremony in your reception hall on the dance floor.
I noticed you have a shuttle – just curious how many people it seats and what arrangements can be made?
Our shuttle seats (20) twenty guests with or without golf clubs, we work with you to determine how many runs and what times you need based on how many guest would need the service. Shuttle runs start at $100.00/rt. We will run to any Port Huron local locations.
Hello, we would like to tour your venue, but was hoping to find out a little info first – what is your bar set up?
We have 4 bars – one in the lower level hall, two in the upper level hall/halls with the option to have an open bar outside on the deck. All of our bar packages include a bartender. Our ServSafe Alcohol Training ensures we are compliant with the Michigan Liquor Control Code. We do not serve shots or on the rocks drinks with our open bar packages. All drinks are single shots and have to have a mixer. Typically, the bars will close during the dinner hour. There are packages that allow you to pay a per person price to keep the bar open during dinner and/or if you would like to extend your service time for a later reception. Our outdoor deck bar can be added for a rental charge for any event. The Outdoor Bar is non-refundable should there be in-climate weather conditions. Bartenders are based off total guest counts, one Bartender per one hundred guests. Additional Bartenders can be added for an additional fee. Our Event Coordinator will be happy to discuss all of these options to accommodate your needs.
Since your location is on a Golf Course, are there any golf options available?
When booking your wedding with us, you get two free rounds of golf. Tee Times need to be set up with the Event Coordinator prior to your wedding. Golf cart use is limited only if you have a preferred photographer and would like to do something fun, if not using a preferred vendor, the carts are intended for our golfers only.
Your place is so beautiful with a ton of outdoor picture opportunities – what options are available?
Solitude Links has many beautiful settings for your pictures. The area around the club house and the water fall are most popular with our brides. We do ask that you be courteous of the greens as heels can cause damage. If you are using a preferred photographer, you may go out further out on to the course as well as to one of our bridges by golf cart, many of our brides like the uniqueness of these settings. Your Event Coordinator can coordinate this with the pro-shop to allow you to get the best photo opportunities as well as be considerate of our golfers out on the course.
We have children and adults with food allergies and vegetarian preferences will that be ok?
We are happy to accommodate any Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten free or special allergies. This is something that should be discussed with your Event Coordinator as you plan your weddings menu's.
Will we be able to use the upstairs balcony during our reception?
We are very proud of our upper balcony. We have multiple seating areas, umbrellas, fire pits and outdoor space heaters. We also have an outdoor bar that is available at an extra fee for your event. The balcony will be set up and fully in use for every event, weather permitting.
Is there a place for me and my bridesmaids to get dressed or somewhere private that we can keep our belongings and freshen up?
We have three beautiful bridal suits, two upstairs and one downstairs. The Harmony Suite and the Tranquility Suite are upstairs. These rooms are yours for the day and your suite will be based on which hall you have booked. If you have booked the Grande Hall, you get use of both suites. Our lower level Reflection Hall gets the lower level bridal suite available to you and your wedding party. All three rooms have code pad locks and are secure for your belongings. Solitude Links does not allow: fireworks, Chinese Lanterns, confetti of any kind, straw or hay bails. Nothing can be draped or hung from the ceiling in the upper halls. Open flame candles must be in a glass holder.
Can I use my own DJ and photographer?
While we encourage you to use our Preferred Vendors, Outside vendors are welcome, we just require those vendors to supply Solitude Links with a copy of their liability insurance certificate (Accord)
