Portland is one of our favorite places in the country to say "I do," so if you're marrying in the City of Roses, here are some creative, PDX-themed ideas to incorporate into your celebration.
Save the Date (above): A vintage postcard-themed save-the-date will compel guests to mark their calendar.
Welcome Bag: Kick off your wedding festivities with a Portland-themed welcome bag filled with thoughtful goodies like maps, post cards, and locally made booze and sweets. Be sure to stash everything in a Powell's bookstore tote.

Table Number Cards: Portland is famous for its many bridges, so help guests get the lay of the land by naming each table after a different one. Local graphic designer April Black has a set of bridge-themed post cards that would be perfect as table-number cards.

Food Trucks: Another thing Portland is known for? Its amazing food truck scene. Hire your favorite truck or cart to serve up food at your wedding. Our pick? Salt & Straw ice cream, of course.
