Weddings in Washington have something for everybody - romance, beautiful natural scenery, exciting metro locations and much more. This resource page serves as your wedding planning HQ, with suggestions for photos, venues and more. Let's see what the Evergreen State has to offer!
Let's start in the city for our Washington wedding venues tour. Seattle is not only the largest population center in the state, but it's also the ideal headquarters for planning wedding excursions in and around the Puget Sound area. Breathtaking views are everywhere in Seattle, so your wedding photos never fail to impress. Some of Seattle's cool attractions include the Space Needle (a favorite wedding photo backdrop), Woodland Park Zoo, the Great Wheel, Gas Works Park (with stunning cross-water views of the downtown skyline) and Green Lake Park, where many newlyweds spend time for photos after the ceremony and before the reception. Immediately south of Seattle, two wedding-worthy cities await: Tacoma and Olympia. Olympic National Park (located northwest of Olympia) has nearby amenities for engaged couples, and rates as one of Washington's top attractions. Want your wedding to be one with nature, with everything from majestic forests to seaside views? Go to ONP! Two other National Parks in Washington attract adventurous wedding planners: North Cascades National Park and Mount Rainier National Park. The latter is named for Washington's highest peak, at over 14,000 feet. Swinging eastward along I-90, Washington's central region, the city of Yakima (via I-82) has impressive wedding venues for celebrations outside Seattle. Spokane, Washington's 2nd-largest city (population over 200,000 people), offers countryside charm for a big city, and its selection of Washington State wedding B&Bs, hotels and venues make it one of Washington's most popular wedding spots.
Depending on where your Washington wedding venue is located, climate can play a major factor. Outdoor weddings are increasingly popular, and the state's eastern half is much more compatible to year-round celebrations. When planning your Washington wedding, think on an east-west axis; the further west, the more unpredictable (and soggy) the climate. Head east, and you'll enjoy a drier, more temperate environment. Summers tend to be hot and sticky in Washington, with average July and August temps north of 75 degrees. Spokane is typical of eastern Washington weather: comfortable in the summer, yet cold in the winter - December through January average temperatures are below 40 degrees. The climate - color relationship is important for Washington wedding celebrations. Cool, neutral tones (think light blue, white and beige) work well in the state's "winter wonderland" areas, while earthy, elemental colors complement Washington's diverse natural scenery. The state flower is the rhododendron, and the flower's white and pink combination figures prominently in many Washington weddings. The western hemlock, Washington's official tree, makes up much of the state's forests, and green is quickly becoming a popular primary and accent color for celebrations all across the state. If you're going with an oceanfront wedding along the Pacific coast, or an idyllic lakeside venue, try to plan a summer or autumn wedding, when sunny skies and autumn foliage can give any wedding photo shoot unparalleled natural appeal.
Weddings in Washington offer endless variety, outstanding venue possibilities - and they're also incredibly affordable! Recent wedding costs analysis shows Washington weddings are, on average, about 10% less than most celebrations in the United States. At less than $200 per guest, statewide wedding costs provide plenty of built-in value. And considering the stunning natural beauty, Washington weddings are one of the best bargains in the country. Washington's growing "foodie culture" makes it a Washington wedding catering HQ, with an outstanding selection of established and up-and-coming companies. Local Washington photographers know all the best locations for your album, and Washington wedding transportation services can help shuttle your wedding guests to and fro all across the Evergreen State. From natural scenery to wedding service providers, Washington has it all!
A marriage license in Washington is good for 60 days after issue, so keep that in mind when planning your wedding. The cost varies, depending on the local county or jurisdiction. For example, a marriage license in Pierce County costs $66. State County Auditor offices issue Washington marriage licenses, which require a 3-day waiting period.
