Looks like I’ve been missing out on a lot of fun Seattle-bride chat! Just wanted to say hi to you all and join in the fun. When and where are you all getting married? I’m getting married at Kiana Lodge on July 10th. Looking forward to sharing ideas and hearing about everyone’s weddings!

I’m a psudo-Seattle bride- My family and I are all from Seattle, but I go to school in PA, and the FI’s family is in PA too… so the wedding will be out here… with a second wedding celebration in Seattle! I’d planned on a Seattle wedding and was rather excited about it… but this just works better. We’re still looking for a celebration location for late May/early June this year… Right now we’re looking at the DAR Rainier Chapter house, the Skansonia, Aqua Club, Environmental Services Building (closer to Tacoma) and Pioneer Pavillion (in Puyallup) 🙂

Hi! Welcome to the seattle board!
@CinnamonStick: my friend had her reception at the Pioneer Pavillion- it’s such a gorgeous building! She put up twinkle lights everywhere and it looked so gorgeous.

I didn’t get married in Seattle, but I can say that the Seattle bees are the kindest, nicest people out there! DAR Rainier Chapter house is beautiful, and I’m not so hip to Skansonia– but I suppose it’s because my work hosts a party there every year.

*Waves* Hi JMKassak! Welcome to the Seattle Boards.
I’m marrying Mary 23, 2010 at the Seattle Harbor Club, don’t really have a theme but my girls keep calling it vintage couture (modern meets vintage), We are having a blast doing it 🙂

Hey there! We’re getting married on New Year’s Eve (2010) at the Lake Washington Rowing Club on the canal in Fremont.
CinnamonStick: the DAR house is absolutely beautiful. If you’re having a wedding of less than 75 people, it’s a super great deal because the rental isn’t too much and it includes all the linens, china, glassware, etc. If you’re above 100, you rent the whole house which costs more than they advertise in their website. They also require you hire about 3 of their staff for just general set-up…with their labor plus gratuity plus needing to pay labor on your catering staff, it can add up. We probably still would have gone with them if we weren’t getting married on New Year’s Eve…they charged extra for the rental cost for the venue plus the staff gets paid holiday rates. It made it completely unaffordable. Oh, also, if you’re above 75 and need to use the upstairs banquet hall, I’ll warn you that they don’t have an elevator (and it’s a long set of stairs).

Thanks for all of the tips- especially about the DAR house! I’ll be sure to keep all of that in mind, particularly when asking questions!

@PretzelOh that’s awesome! How did you figure that out??
Bobbi is just the greatest 🙂
@Jackie Oh I adore Sodo park! They were a finalist in our venue choices, but knowing the Chef at the SHC so I could totally customize the menu, put it over the top 🙂 That and I knew the Catering Manager 🙂

Love to see so many Seattle brides! I’m living in Portland now, but the wedding will be in Seattle (probably next Feb?). Love love love Sodo Park but not sure I can make it work… Kiana Lodge is out near where I grew up though – love seeing someone who’s getting married on the Kitsap side (we aren’t sure yet which side of the water, though I’m leaning toward Seattle… I love so many of the venues in the city!)

Hi Seattle bees! I’m also new to the boards and planning an Aug 2010 wedding at Sodo Park.
