Whether we're drinking while playing kickball, or enjoying Tuesday noon brunch, we Portlanders don't really know how to be "normal." "Rocked 2013," Portland's only couture bridal event on Sunday February 17th, will be no exception.
Portland Bride & Groom and The Nines Hotel are transforming The Nines' ballroom into three mock wedding receptions with innovative themes. Last year, "Rocked" hosted motifs like "High Style Glam," with fashion-forward wedding looks, and "A Very Gaga Wedding," equipped with fur, leather and studs. Also making it unusual and better than your typical bridal show is lots of beer.
"Rocked" will include numerous vendors covering all your wedding needs; from top-shelf cake designers, to photographers, to post-wedding lingerie. Proceeds from "Rocked" go towards "Wish Upon a Wedding," a non-profit that grants weddings to couples in need, regardless of sexual orientation.
This event sounds like possibly the best way to plan a wedding; help out a good cause, drink, and gaze at wedding dresses that don't look like a 1980s whip cream explosion.
