The 8th annual Wedding in Woodinville tour is this Sunday! Here are a few tips on how to make the most out of our show & what you can expect during the tour.
Dress for the Northwest. Please plan on experiencing all the seasons during the tour. Many of the venues have outdoor spaces decorated for you to experience the entire venue and although they all offer covering and heaters (thanks to our fantastic rental companies who know how to plan for our wet & cold weather better than anyone) it still can get cold. Please bring a jacket, scarf and walking shoes that can hold up to the many surfaces you’ll experience between the venues that range from loose gravel to paved concrete.
Check-in begins at 11:30am. If possible, try to arrive with your entire party so that you can be transported together. Look for the white tent in the Woodhouse Wine Estates parking lot (15500 Woodinville-Redmond Rd NE, Woodinville, WA 98072). The party starts here! Inside the tent brides and grooms to-be will receive a complimentary boutonniere from Blue Ivory & Co., learn how Espresso Elegance can perk up your special day while sampling one of their signature wedding drinks, savor some of Green Apple Events & Catering tasting samples while chatting with their friendly team, and more!
Parking is FREE! There is plenty of free parking available at Woodhouse Wine Estates and Butler Valet will be on hand to help direct you to the perfect spot.
Bring your ID. The tour is a wedding show that is also a wine tour that includes tastings from eight wineries, two beer providers and a cider company. The show is recommended for adults only, however guests under age 21 are welcome to attend with your party. A wristband will be provided at registration to identify you as a guest of Weddings in Woodinville. Wristbands and valid ID are required to participate in the complimentary wine tasting offered at each location.
Be sure to take a program and your complimentary custom canvas tote bag at registration. Each venue will offer their own program that will highlight the vendors you will see at that location but the main program is a fantastic reference guide for future use that lists the vendors who are participating in the show. Be sure that at least one of you in your party grabs a tote bag as you'll need something to collect all the swag you will be given during the tour!
Be sure to pick up your complimentary Wedding Resource Guides from Weddings in Woodinville's Media Sponsors BanquetEvent.com and Seattle Bride.
Transportation is designed to take you to each venue during the 4+ hour tour so there is no need to create a list of who to see as our tour is designed to give you ample time at each venue to meet & greet all the vendors. Transportation will loop continuously in a pre-determined order, allowing you to visit all eight venues for as long as you like.
Every vendor in our show offers a product or service that directly relates to your wedding from bachelor and bachelorette parties to the get-away car and everything in between. There are no unrelated companies.
You will not be hungry after this tour! Each venue will have a full-range of appetizers, passed bites and sweets for you to munch on. Between the 8 venues we have over a dozen caterers sampling their savory to sweet bites.
Budget your time at each venue, as all transportation will return to Registration Parking by 5pm when the show is over if you've visited all venues are not. We suggest leaving yourself around 30 minutes at each venue to allow plenty of time to see each location. To exit the tour and return to your vehicle at any time please notify the next driver or transportation representative and they will return you to registration. Vehicles will not deviate from the route to make special requested stops other than returning guests to registration by request. Please note general parking is limited or unavailable at many venues and utilizing tour transportation is mandatory unless prior arrangements have been made.
