Hey Seattle Brides!
I am trying to research what brides are looking for in a venue. It doesn’t matter if you are already married or getting married you can answer! I have 3 different venue options for you to choose from. All venues would be located in the Eastside (Bellevue, Issaquah, Seattle, Redmond, Bothell, or Kirkland). Below are your options. Can you please read them and let me know which one (if any) you would be interested in having a reception at? Thank you so much for your help! ALL input is very much appreciated!
All venues would include tables, linens of your choice, chavari chairs, day of coordinator, use of your own caterer (although we have a great one for 20.00 a person for a served meal)BYO alcohol, use of a photo booth for an extra 300.00, use of lounge furniture for 50.00, and up lighting in the color of your choice.
These venues will not be the type of venue that charges you for everything they possibly can. I really want to be a venue that everyone can afford.
1. Having your reception in the backyard of an estate. The price would be $3,500 and this would include the list of items above but also includes a tent with draping and chandeliers if you want, a shuttle service for your guests from a hotel of your choice to the estate, and heating lamps if needed.
2.An old rustic building with exposed bricks. The price would be $3,000 and it would include all of them items above. Additionally, it would include draping if you want.
3. A modern looking building with hardwood flooring. The price would be $3,000 and it would include all of them items above. Additionally, it would include draping if you want.

i like all 3! a little pricey, but if the tent is included, then its probably worth it!

good lord, I don’t think you could have asked a harder question. I’m in love with every photo!! I can’t choose, they’re all too beautiful. I think it would help if we knew your theme.

I love #2 in a BIG way. I totally want to move my whole wedding to washington just for that venue. OMG stunning!

This is a hard one… you have amazing options!
I voted for the estate, but I was totally torn between the estate and the rustic building, but, now that I think about it more, I might be leaning more towards the exposed brick building because, hey, it’s seattle, it’s probably going to rain, and if so people might be more comfortable in a warm cozy rustic building.

All three are nice…my personal preference for the kind of event and time of year is #3. I’m getting married in late October, in the Seattle area myself, and want all indoors…and while we’re going for a vintage feel wedding, the last venue could be made to look vintage with the right decor added.
Are you a coordinator, tell me more? I want a served sit down dinner for my reception and I’d be very interested to see what you offer for $20 a plate.

@jayme.l.shepherd: and I did mean the event and time of year I’m planning for my own wedding…guess I left that out…

I think OP is looking into starting up a venue for wedding business, not choosing for her own wedding or offering services at any of the above places yet- there was a very similar post last week.
@Talishazwi: perhaps you can clarify this for us?

One and Two are killing me right now. They are both fabulous.

I love both the tent and the rustic building most, so for me it would really depend on the time of year, theme…
I’d probably go for the rustic building as it could be amazingly decorated with fairy lights and such 🙂
