Welcome to the bee! I’m from Seattle but don’t live there anymore so I don’t know wedding venues on Cap Hill too well. However, maybe you can write a new post on the Seattle board and someone can help you out! There are plenty of Seattle bees here! Also, when we were looking for venues, I found the Knot’s local Houston board really helpful, since it’s more active than Weddingbee’s Houston board. Have you tried that yet?

When you get a list of venues you’re interested in, you should check the reviews on Weddingwire. That website seems to have the highest number of reviews for different venues and vendors, and I relied on it a lot. (After our wedding in a few weeks I’m planning on reviewing all of our vendors, too, to do other brides the same service.) Anyways, hope those resources help you out!

My friend got married at Pravda Events in Cap Hill and it was awesome!  They did have a parking lot, but I’m not sure how many spaces were provided.  Her guest list wasn’t quite as big as yours… I think it was closer to 150.  But it’s worth checking out!  For some reason their website is down, but here is their Facebook link:

Here is how she decorated:

Do you need it to be Cap Hill? We’re getting married at Sodo Park, which is a bit pricey but is huge and beautiful. I think a lot of hotels can handle a large guest list so you might check around. Do you know what your budget is yet?

Hi there!

We are getting married at the Lake Union Cafe.  It is a venue and caterer in one (you can also use their bakery).  The staff is amazing and the venue is spectacular.  The are on Eastlake just before you get to the U-District.  Seriously, check them out.  They were so reasonably priced in comparison to other venues we looked at.

PM me if you have any questions.

@dsanchez:  For our venue we are spending around $45.00 per head for a sit down dinner (optional), depending on the number of people this may go down to $36 per head (off season).  They charge per head and nothing for the venue.  Bonus, they don’t charge a corking or cake cutting fee.  The cake is amazing and I’ve heard from my PT that the food is excellent.

Melrose Market is on Cap Hill and is a newer venue. It’s not very expensive and it is really versatile. It doesn’t include food, but they do have caterers that they recommend. 

I have a great photographer to recommend, too, if you need one. 🙂

@dsanchez:  I wonder if any of the buildings on the SU campus can be rented for events? Casey has a really beautiful top floor, and the student center has several multipurpose rooms. (I’m an alum, can you tell?)

 

You might check out the Rainier Chapter House, too. I don’t know what their pricing is like, though.

 

Expanding a bit: Fremont Abbey (http://fremontabbey.org/) or maybe the Swedish Cultural Center (http://www.swedishculturalcenter.org/).

@dsanchez: some big moderny seattle venues that look gorgeous. i’m not sure about the prices though :

  • georgetown ballroom
  • georgetown studios
  • court in the square
  • great hall at union station

would you consider a “nontraditional” setting like a museum? the frye museum rents out space and is super close to SU.
