We have been very fortunate to have the amazing Seattle Met Bride and Groom publication as a major sponsor for Get Hitched Give Hope through the years.
This is a company that not only cares for the Seattle wedding industry, but for giving, and this year we are stoked to have Laura Cassidy, Libby and Dixie join our team to help bring this event together.
Libby and Dixie are procurement team members who bring their knowledge of the who’s who in the Seattle area to help make our event better than ever, and then the fabulous Laura Cassidy, editor of the magazine is here helping us get the word out about the event and making even more people aware of the gorgeous goods while giving back you can do when you come to the party on November 8th!
We love these ladies, and trust me, you will too! Read on about what makes these gals tick

You work for Seattle Met Bride & Groom. What drew you to your job? The Sagacity titles are the best publications in town; from the top down we follow old school, traditional media guidelines that allow for fair, straight-forward reporting. But we have fun, too. And that all shows; Seattle loves us because they know we’re honest, hardworking, and principled—and we have good parties! When you work in media these days, you want to work for a company that values integrity and forward-thinking creativity. We have it in spades. So lucky! It’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle!
Do you have any insider secrets to tell our brides to make their planning / enjoying of their wedding easier? Read our blog, get our newsletter, email us if you want back issue of our mag—the ideas are all so fresh still! Tell us the most unique thing you saw at a wedding / were asked to do for a wedding? We see so much great stuff via the Real Weddings submissions. We love the big, grand fire-works-on-the-waterfront affairs as much as we love the intimate 12-person dinner celebrations. Are you married? And if you are, what was your favorite part of your wedding or what would you have done differently? LAURA My husband and I sort of eloped, and I don’t regret that, but some day I want to have a big anniversary party in the backyard with lots of food and lots of photographs. We only have one picture of us together at our wedding! DIXIE Celebrating 25 years in October and I look forward to renewing our vows sooner than later. Thinking this time I’d forgo the 80’s tea length gown with monster bow and funky tights. LIBBY Not yet, but when I do, it will be one heck of a party! What color shoes do you plan to wear to this year’s event? LAURA I’m gonna say BRIGHT BLUE (who wants to go shopping???) LIBBY TBD. Too soon to tell whether the shoes will dictate the dress, or the dress will dictate the shoes…Stay tuned! DIXIE seriously contemplating leopard pumps… Thanks Dixie, Laura, and Libby!
