Getting Married In: Seattle

Local, Planning Tips, Wedding Style & Decor

Seattle is one of our favorite places in the country to tie the knot, so if you're marrying in Emerald City, here are some creative, city-centric ideas to incorporate into your celebration.

Welcome Bag (above): This couple welcome guests to their hometown with a welcome bag screen-printed with Seattle's skyline and filled with goodies like pre-stamped city postcards, mini bottles of booze, imported Italian and Greek candies, hangover snacks and remedies, and of course, some Starbucks coffee.

Poster Wedding Invitation: Get guests excited about traveling to your nuptials with a poster-style invitation designed to look like a map of America, with an "X" marking the spot.

Raindrop Guest-Book Poster: Instead of a traditional guest book, invite guests to ink a finger and press to make a thumbprint raindrop, then sign their name right next to the droplet.

Coffee Beans Escort-Card Display: Pay homage to Seattle's most popular beverage with a clever escort-card display — simply arranged rows of tented cards in a shallow tray filled with roasted coffee beans.

Table-Number Cards: Show your affection for the Emerald City by naming each reception table after a different Seattle neighborhood.

Cake Topper: Top off your wedding cake with a miniature replica of the city's iconic landmark, the Space Needle.
