WHAT: If the phrase "wedding show" conjures up images of  a trade-show style event with bad lighting, uninspiring ideas, and pushy, discount-hungry couples, allow us to introduce you to COMMITTED, Portland's indie and alternative wedding show party.

There's nothing traditional about it: The evening is more one big bash than some stuffy business-like event, featuring booze, eats, fashion, live music, lounge areas, mood lighting, and bold event styling. (And did we mention booze?)

Curated by Luxe Event Productions, Portland's raddest vendors join forces---including My Bartender, Barclay Event Rentals, Lightning Cupcakes, Happymatic, and many more---to celebrate good times with local brides and grooms, brides and brides, and grooms and grooms.
