Pros and Cons of Wedding Receptions in Tacoma

Tacoma is a splendid city in which to host a wedding reception. The pacific northwest has comfortable weather and fantastic scenery, though, like any city, has its wealth inequality that manifests itself in crime and homelessness, giving it its own set of troubles.

Advantages

  • Amazing live music
    It is a luxury to have so many great options for live musicians to play at your Tacoma wedding reception and this city has a bunch.

  • Green vistas
    No wedding reception in Tacoma is complete without a gorgeous view to tie it all together. There are some beautiful green sites in this city.

  • Beautiful climate
    This pacific northwest city has a lovely climate with temperatures that rarely go below 22 degrees and never really reach the 90s (until very recently).

Disadvantages

  • Not super safe
    While Tacoma is a much safer city, statistically speaking, than Seattle with relation to crime, it is still not considered one of America’s safer cities. Just be cautious and aware of your surroundings when traveling to or from your wedding reception.

  • Lots of rain
    It turns out that Tacoma has a rainy season that lasts about six months out of the year. That means you have a 50/50 shot of having a rainy day.

  • Must have a car
    While there is public transportation, most recommend having your own vehicle. The average commute is 25 minutes, making it a somewhat difficult place to travel through. Make sure your guests are aware of the time it will take to reach your Tacoma wedding reception venue to avoid delays.
