I’m not in eastern, but have noticed a lack of WA brides in general. I’m from the Bellingham area :/

I’m from Bellingham on the western side but my fiance is from Yakima. I’ve only been once but I can imagine there’d be wonderful wedding venues there! It’s so different from the west side and all the orchards were beautiful.

Purple possum: imo, I hate it here. Very hot and dry. I’m so used to Oregon, green, mountains and rain! After I’m done with school and get some experience I plan on trying to get a job out in Portland at Shriners hospital. But apparently you aren’t the only one who has found the beauty here (I still am trying to find it). They are filming a movie over here in the Tri-Cities. Its called “Hello. My name is Frank”. They have a fb page, but I can’t seem to find anything on it on imdb.

@NotablySidedJP:  Hi there! It might be a bit far from Richland, but I got married in Winthrop earlier this year. It was wonderful! Definitely drier than Seattle, but still greener than Yakima valley. If you want more details, PM me 🙂

@NotablySidedJP:  I know what you mean…the wedding in Winthrop was essentially a domestic DW for us. I’m in Vancouver BC for school and my husband is in Seattle! The planning had to be done almost entirely online. Not the easiest way to go for sure, but in the end we had no regrets 🙂 Do you foresee your family being very involved in the planning? If you had the wedding in Bremerton, maybe they can help you with some of the local stuff, take pictures etc.

@NotablySidedJP:  Yeah that kinda sucks about the wineries. We looked into a few around here too but they tended to be very pricey with too many stipulations and too few services provided. It’s great your mom is so excited though! 🙂 All the best!

@NotablySidedJP:  I am asking my sis in law to use her yard. She’s got acreage. And I totally know what you mean. I grew up in Oregon. So I am used to the trees, rain and mountains. The city of Richland has their community center which is nice for a reception. If your okay with hotels, you’ve got Shiloh inn in Richland that seems to be a big hit with their gazebo out back during the summer. Then there’s also Clover Island Inn. If you’re doing a non child wedding, there’s Roxy A Wine Bar. Terra Blanca is really nice. Its a winery. The scenery is amazing. About 7 years ago, their package was 3k. Unsure how much it is now.

@NotablySidedJP:  I can’t afford an expensive big wedding. So a small one will do. Also the fact that my family lives so far away, there’s no relationship between my family and my fiances. Like they don’t know each other at all. So I think having a small wedding will let everyone get the chance to talk to each other and HOPEFULLY get to know each other.

Instead of having your family go through your house, could you have them go through the yard?
