Seattle is known for its rainy weather and booming businesses but it deserves credit for its weddings, too. The incredible rainforests, mountains, lakes, and waterways that surround the city make it one of the most picturesque places in the world. With stunning scenery like that, it’s no surprise this Pacific Northwest jewel is home to some spectacular wedding venues. The elegant, scenic, and unique wedding venues Seattle has to offer include a treehouse, a seafront restaurant, a peaked-ceiling loft, and much more.
You’ll be able to find just what you’re looking for when you search Zola’s pre-screened community of wedding venues in Seattle with these key considerations:
Price: The cost of the venue should be at the top of your list of things to consider. You can find premier wedding venues with incredible views and top-tier prices, but the affordable wedding venues Seattle has to offer are just as beautiful, including national parks and meadow farms just a stone’s throw away from the center of town.
Capacity: Make your guest list before browsing venues so you can filter your search for the perfect Seattle venue by how many guests it can hold.
Setting: The setting is important when you’re getting married in one of the rainiest cities in the US. Unless you want to say “We do” while raindrops sprinkle onto your suit or gown, it’s a good idea to check the box for indoor or covered outdoor venues.
Event Type: Downtown Seattle wedding venues are great for more than just weddings. Find more than just wedding reception venues in Seattle with Zola’s event type filter. Think spaces for your rehearsal dinner, farewell brunch, wedding shower, and more.
Availability: Don’t be caught out in the cold when your dream Seattle wedding venue isn’t available. Select your desired date using Zola’s availability filter and keep unavailable wedding venues at bay.
Before you sign on the dotted line, pay attention to the weather surrounding your wedding season and the Seattle-specific sites you want captured in your photos.
Weather: Weather is the key consideration when looking for wedding venues in Seattle. If you can take advantage of gorgeous Seattle summers, which boast endless daylight and moderately warm temperatures, you’ll find stunning outdoor venues such as Woodinville Lavender, which hardly needs decor thanks to fields full of the purple plant. However, if you’re getting married in the winter, there are plenty of stunning indoor wedding venues in Seattle to choose from, too, such as the sky-lit penthouse at Fremont Foundry.
Noteworthy Sites: We already mentioned how much stunning scenery surrounds the city, so be sure to take advantage of it. Whether you wed lakefront, mountaintop, or with the Space Needle in the background, your photographer will have ample opportunities to capture the best of Seattle when you plan it right.
