Wedding in Portland

Those that know anything about Portland, Oregon, will know that it is best known as a hipster paradise and the fact that it was an old shipping port. One fact you may not know is that it is also famously environmentally friendly and has a love of vegan food. 

However, if you are reading this article, you are clearly considering Portland as a destination for your wedding, and let me just say, good choice!

Popular Wedding Options in Portland

Portland is a truly diverse city, and popular wedding trends will depend on where couples choose to get married. According to The Knot, coastal weddings tend to have a bohemian, casual feel, while those that choose for a vineyard wedding will opt towards a more country-chic vibe. The romantic garden theme is also extremely popular, making the most of Portland’s love of sustainable woodland. Barn weddings are also very popular and beautiful.

You can really get a little bit of everything in Portland, so there is sure to be a venue and theme that will suit your tastes.

 

Portland Weather and Weddings

Thanks to the city’s ideal location, Portland experiences relatively mild winters compared to the rest of the northern USA, so it is a great location for year-round weddings. However, summer is still the most popular time to be wed, with July and August being the busiest (and therefore most expensive). The months of September – November are also very popular as the fall colors are spectacular, and the weather is mild and enjoyable. Most venues will offer an indoor alternative, so you can be confident in booking any time of the year.

 

Guest Travel and Accommodation

Luckily, the Portland International Airport is the largest airport in Oregon and is located just 12 miles from Portland downtown. So, your guests will not have any issues getting to and from the city regardless of where they are flying from. Most of the key attractions (and the best food) are in downtown Portland, so this central location would be a key place to get your guests to stay. A light rail travels between the airport and downtown, costing just $2.50 for adults. 

Accommodation options you should consider for your guests include:
