The ULTIMATE Tri-Cities Wedding Venue Guide
Although I got married in 2015, I can clearly remember how hard the wedding planning process was. I wasn’t lucky enough to have websites like 509 Bride to help find vendors for all things wedding related within the Tri-Cities. I would try searching for venues on major wedding planning sites, and the closest listing to a Tri-Cities wedding venue was in Wenatchee! I spent hours googling “tri-cities wedding venue” and “richland wedding reception venue” trying to find the perfect venue. After having no luck in my searching, we ended up having our reception in my parent’s backyard since we were unable to find a venue that fit all of our needs. Since 2015, I have shot and attended many weddings at a lot of local venues that I had no idea existed. Let’s not allow all of these venue gems hide! I have complied a list of the best Tri-Cities wedding venues for all of your wedding planning needs. Brides and grooms need to know that there are places out there for the variety of your wedding needs. Hopefully, this post will help you make a venue decision fast as well as make you aware of all your options.
