Mefibrarians and Mefi-Seattlites: Help us plan the dorkiest wedding ever.
So we didn't end up
on Friday, planning instead to put it off until Sunday, but that is OK because instead I got an engagement ring. Now we need to find a library or library-ish building to get married in.
Though I know weddings have been held at Central, we aren't interested in that -- it's too pointy.
An option that I am not totally sold on but will be checking out is the Library Bistro
. Anyone have any experience with it?
A Carnegie library would be fun, but today I talked to chat reference and the librarian said they are still in use as branches. Is this true? I know one of them (is there more than one?) is in Ballard and I know Ballard just got that fancy new branch, so is the old one not in use as a library? We've heard rumors that it might be a restaurant? We plan at least to drive by and check it out, but other information is welcome.
Does anyone have any other ideas for library-related buildings or locations? We are thinking fall, so almost certainly indoors, though access to an outside space would be nice. There will be dinner, so it needs to be someplace that serves food or allows caterers, and we absolutely have to be able to have alcohol, or else it needs to be close enough to a good restaurant or dinner place that we can walk there. It would be best if dogs are allowed, but on reflection, we might not be able to have both dogs and libraries. Seattle or nearby is best, though for the right location, we'd travel a bit (San Juans? The coast? Portland?). We are aiming for around 100 guests, but we will each only have one attendant (is that the right word?) so the actual wedding party will be small. I don't know what the budget is yet, but the cheaper the better, of course. What details am I forgetting/have I not even considered?
