I was wondering if this sounds like too much to ask from guests. We are from the Snohomish area, but have family that live all over the state, like Tacoma area and Chehalis. Someone suggested looking at venues further north, even up in Bellingham because they might be cheaper. We did a tiny bit of perusing and found that the advice was true. Further north there are some good venues for great prices. But is it asking too much of people to travel that far north?
