- Wedding: July 2009
Over the holiday, my fiance and I were back in Seattle (where we’re getting married) and we had a meeting with our wedding planners. We’ve had our venue, Court in the Square, reserved since last March – it was one of the first details we took care of!
During the meeting, our planners informed us that after doing a 90-person at our venue in August, they believe that we have been misled as to how many people can comfortably fit. Apparently, with 90 guests the space felt tight. The guy who manages Court in the Square told us when we reserved it that its capacity is 300, and that at 200 it sometimes starts to get crowded. We’re inviting about 250 people, so I’m thinking we’ll probably end up with 150 guests total.
Anyway, we haven’t dropped Court in the Square yet, but now we’re back at square one, trying to find a place to get married. The wedding is in July, and venues near downtown Seattle (and that fit into our $20,000 budget) are hard to come by. I was so proud that we had one of our biggest hurdles cleared so far in advance, and now I’m wracking my brains, trying to come up with something else!
Seattle brides, have any of you had any experience with Court in the Square? And do you know of any other indoor venues that fit 150-200 people and don’t cost an arm and a leg? (For reference, the rental fee at Court in the Square is $750, and they can do dinner for anywhere between $10 and $55 a person – we were going for the $15-$20 range.)
Thanks a bazill. Any help you can give me will be huge. HUGE!
