The birds, the cherry blossoms, and the daffodils are out in full effect — must be … yeah, it is… Wedding Season. Here are four events to consider adding to your wedding planning social calendar.
1. Let’s get the words FREE and CUPCAKE in the same sentence, shall we? On Saturday April 10 from 11 to 2p at 415 Westlake, Cupcake Camp will both raise money for Hope Heart Institute and allow you taste-test an obscene amount of the sweet little bites from all over the city. If you’re thinking of having cupcakes at your reception, there is probably no better all-in-one opportunity to figure out whose you like the best. Some kind of wonderful, eh? You have Bella Cupcake Couture to thank for the Seattle edition of this national "camp," so let’s not forget those adorable little wrappers. (No, Cupcake Camp is not strictly a wedding event, but it’s okay if you utilize it as one.)
3. Billed as a "more civilized way to accomplish your wedding planning," Voila! gathers vendors like Azzura Photography, All About Weddings & Celebrations, and Edit 1 Media (full list, curated by Panache and Pink Blossoms Events, is here) at the Woodmark in Kirkland on Sunday March 28 from noon to 5 and leaves the rest, more or less, up to you. Ask questions, inquire about availability, and check out the seasonally decorated rooms for inspiration and motivation.
4. For a more urban flavor, you might try meeting up with PM Photobooth, Gabriel Boone Photography, Moon Mansion, Scott Staples Catering, and more at Sole Repair on Capitol Hill on Sunday April 18 from 3 to 6. Hosted by All the Flutter and Anticipate Wedding and Event Planning, The One is an afternoon of photobooth snaps, snack samples, and mini spa services.
