Downtown Wedding Venues in Gig Harbor
Have your wedding in the downtown corridor of Gig Harbor. Yes, with views of the harbor, the boats and with the quaint downtown shops your guests will surely capture the whole Gig Harbor experience.
1. Club at the Boatyard– this is the newest wedding venue in town. Located at the Gig Harbor Marina this year-round heated venue with its unique Indoor-Outdoor concept has walls that can opened and options galore. In my many years of event planning I have never seen a more versatile venue. Located next to the downtown Skansie City Park your wedding ceremony & reception has an outdoor option to reserve and utilize the waterfront park area. With a serving kitchen for your caterer, a portable bar for your alcohol service and tables & chairs included this venue is a a waterfront dream for 150 – 200 guests depending on seating. What makes this venue really attractive is the ability to add an upstairs 2 bedroom apartment that can be for dressing, for family or for the honeymoon- see the Guesthouse @ the Boatyard. Another amazing overnight option is to rent a private Yacht (the Fleet Suites) that is moored at the marina. Yes, you can spend your honeymoon night on a beautiful yacht, right next to the wedding venue. Top you wedding off with a real Venenetian Gondola that can be used for a wedding grand entrance, exit or for the entire time to give guests rides. John the owner will even sing to you as he steers the boat into the harbor sunset.
2. The Gig Harbor History Museum is yet another amazing waterfront option in downtown. I feel the most unique feature of this venue is the option to add the history exhibits to your wedding for an additional fee. I once talked to a wedding party where guests attended from around the globe and were totally impressed to learn about Gig Harbor history when visiting our community for the first time. They also highly praised the exceptional assistance from the staff. The capacity will vary if you rent the entire facility after hours and if you creatively utilize the outdoor area’s or the two adjacent parks with an event tent. The facility manger can work with you to maximize your options. For a venue that captures the heart and spectacular views of harbor The Harbor History Museum should be a consideration for your wedding.
3. The Gig Harbor Yacht Club indeed captures the essence of Gig Harbor. Its capacity is one of the largest in Gig Harbor at 220 and note you DO NOT need to be a member to rent the facility. Located just steps for the Harbor, you do have a waterfront ceremony option by holding your ceremony at one of the city parks and walking 1 block to your reception at the GHYC. The entire facility is handicapped accessible and the rental includes a large parking lot with ample off-street parking. The GHYC has a large well-equipped commercial kitchen that your caterer is sure to love. and a covered deck with a Harbor view. The GHYC is a real value when you consider everything that is included in the rental rate that would cost extra at other venues. Included in your rental is:
- use of the kitchen
- bar with ice machine
- tables, chairs
- dishes, silverware and
- use of the sophisticated AV system
