The Fairmont Olympic Seattle Hotel Celebrates Passage of Marriage Equality Act

Expansion of Popular "Say Yes and Get the Dress" Wedding Promotion to Include Custom Suits

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/26/12 -- Marriage equality is the law of the land in Washington State. The Fairmont Olympic's unique Seattle wedding promotion 'Say yes and get the dress' was expanded to 'Say yes and get the dress -- or the suit' to include the expert tailoring and custom men's formal wear, also available at couture designer Luly Yang's boutique. "We welcome all couples planning their dream wedding here at the Fairmont Olympic," said Dana Schroader, Wedding Specialist at the hotel. The partnership with renowned designer, Luly Yang, is widely regarded as one of the most exciting and original bridal promotions in the city.

With the passage of Referendum 74, same sex couples can now legally wed. The law went into effect on December 6th, with the first weddings being performed on the 9th, including an event hosted at Seattle City Hall that included 138 weddings. Later that evening, a group wedding reception for approximately 2,000 was held at Seattle's Paramount Theatre.

Couples that reserve their wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Seattle hotel will receive their choice of either a 'ready to wear' or 'couture' level Luly Yang dress or custom tailored suit as a gift from the hotel. "The package is simple," said Jana Scopis, Director of Catering. "The question of the venue and the dress -- and now the suit are often the most challenging decisions for couples. We feel that having both elements included with this package makes wedding planning a little less stressful and a lot more fun when you visit the hotel and make an appointment with Luly Yang."

The Fairmont Olympic has been Seattle's most celebrated social address since opening in 1924. On the site of the original University of Washington campus, the hotel spans an entire city block and was revitalized and reopened in 1982. The Olympic hotel was built as a unique private & public partnership and has been a source of community pride and the city's most glamorous events for over 88 years.
