Winter Weddings Don’t Have to Cool Down Your Love

The summer has ended which means cooler temperatures are coming to Seattle. This doesn’t mean however that having a winter wedding at the Woodmark, a Seattle wedding venue, will be any less beautiful than a summer ceremony. We have some tips for you to make sure your Seattle wedding venue is set to be beautiful this winter.

To really get the feel of a winter wedding, you have to reinvent your Seattle wedding venue to really reflect the winter season. Here are 5 tips from our Woodmark team for how we transform our Seattle wedding venue:

  • Change the wedding colors: we all know red and green is the sign of the season but overdo it and it can take away from the special day. Try some silver and white to really enhance the beauty and glamour of the venue. We even had a bride and groom take silver ornaments as their bouqet!
  • Step outside the flower box: put down the typical holiday flowers (red roses, amaryllis, etc.) and consider some fuller flowers instead. Try adding a little sparkle too by wrapping the stem in some ribbon.
  • Step up the invitation: Winter ceremonies usually call for a more formal invitation because of the time of year. Stick the frosted silver color and some hand written calligraphy for a nice personal touch.
  • Bring something new front and center: Instead of the classic candle centerpiece, think about using ice sculpted vases to fit with the winter theme. Our Seattle wedding venue is partners with Creative Ice, who live up to their name for all your ice sculpting needs.
  • Lastly, do your guests a favor: Instead of the traditional wedding favor truffles, give them a small bag of chocolate covered strawberries or roasted chestnuts to stay with the season.

Ultimately, no matter the season, this day is all about you and your significant other. Our team wants to make that day as special as possible no matter what you want. Let your love heat up the winter and call our Catering team today at 206.496.0674 or email them at

Woody Meg’s Thank You to Pet Friendly Guests near Seattle

Now that our last Yappier Hour has closed, I want to give a special thank you to all of our pet friendly guests who came to the Woodmark near Seattle. Each of these events has brought some of my old furry friends as well as new making each so special. Keep reading for my thank you to everyone who was a part of the Yappier Hour in some way this summer.

My first thank you goes to every dog and their owner that came to one of these events to support. I want as many doggies to enjoy this event and see why the Woodmark is such a pet friendly hotel near Seattle. To my old friends who have been coming since the beginning, thank you for continuing our relationship and spending time with me. To the new friends I have met, I hope you will continue coming by with your families to the Woodmark for all of our future Seattle pet friendly events.

Next, I would like to thank the team at Beach Cafe for helping put together and make sure each Yappier Hour ran smoothly. The wonderful wait staff were a pleasure to have serving food and drinks making sure all of our guests weren’t thirsty or hungry (dogs or humans). The human food they had smelled so good, I wish I could have had some but I could tell they were enjoying it each time.

Lastly, I want to thank the special guests we had at each of the Yappier Hours. Thanks to Dorothy from the Dining Dog who served all of my friends with a smile. She made the event fun and was a joy to work with. Thanks to Annheuser Busch for coming out and doing some fun raffles with lots of great drinks. All of our human guests enjoyed what you guys had to offer. Thank you to Tina with Boo Boo Barkery and Boutique who gave away a gift card at our last Yappier Hour and also did nail trims for us. I tell you, I would do that myself but it is not easy!

Stay tuned for many more pet friendly events near Seattle. I am working diligently to continue these types of events all year round. Click the link below for a reminder for how to make the best experience when visiting the pet friendly Woodmark Hotel near Seattle with your furry friend.
