Every little girl dreams of her wedding day. If you are looking for a unique, but stunning wedding location, be sure to consider Seattle. The awe-inspiring skyline, fantastic food, and wealth of arts and culture make Seattle a hit with brides and grooms. Here are some suggestions for your perfect, romantic Seattle wedding:
You will want to start by choosing a location that meets your needs and fits your style. There are lots of hotels in Seattle that offer wedding venue space, but none matches the beauty of the Hyatt Regency Bellevue. It’s located nine miles from downtown Seattle, which gives your guests easy access to area attractions, but also gives your wedding a more remote, private feel. The Hyatt has several wedding spaces inside, including several ballrooms of varying sizes. The hotel also offers full-service wedding packages if you’d rather not deal with the hassle of bookings each vendor separately.
The Washington Athletic Club is another popular venue for Seattle couples. The historic building has a ballroom that can hold up to 220 guests. The space also offers city views of Union Street, which are sure to delight your guests.
Most brides cannot wait to go dress shopping once they get engaged. Fortunately, Seattle has lots of dress shops to fit every bride’s style and budget. La Belle Elaine’s is one of Seattle’s most popular bridal gown shops. They have been in business for 35 years and have a full line of bridal gowns as well as many bridesmaid dress options as well. We recommend that you schedule an appointment in advance because they do get booked fairly far in advance.
I Do Bridal is a terrific option for brides with a smaller budget. This shop offers many “off the rack” dresses at steep discounts. I Do Bridal states that most of their off the rack dresses are under $999, which is a steal for wedding gowns.
There are lots of florists in big cities, and Seattle is no exception. If you are splurging on your wedding, consider Floressence, which comes very highly rated – and very highly priced. Floressence features decadent floral bouquets with jeweled accents and other high-end flourishes. If you are aiming to save money on flowers, Wedding Botanicals is a great option. They offer beautiful arrangements, but at more affordable prices. Their average engaged couple spends $1200 on flowers for their wedding.
Distinct Seattle touches
Many couples are following the hot trend for favors – local flare! Whether you are from Seattle or chose it for its many wonderful and tourist-attracting qualities, Seattle has lots of unique charm. You could get miniature replicas of the Space Needle to give to all your guests. If you prefer to give guests something they can eat, you can bundle samples from your favorite Seattle restaurants in a gift bag for each of your guests. Or if you are a TV fan, you can even give small merchandise items featuring the show Grey’s Anatomy, since the show famously takes place in Seattle.
Seattle offers couples a wealth of choices for their wedding. With the fantastic skyline and delicious cuisine, brides, grooms, and guests alike are sure to find Seattle an unforgettable city for a white wedding.
