WHAT: It's baaaaaack! Portland's annual indie and alternative wedding event, COMMITTED, returns to the Pearl District this Friday night for a festive evening of fun, fashion, and carefree wedding planning.

Far from a traditional wedding show, COMMITTED is all about casual, relaxed "planning" in a party-like atmosphere. Created, curated, and produced by Luxe Event Productions, at Committed you can mix and mingle with the city's top-notch event pros and other local couples, including fellow Mr. + Mrs., Mr. + Mr, and Mrs. + Mrs.

Check out non-traditional and uniquely Portland styling ideas, watch three different fashion shows, chill in the lounge areas, dance to the DJ, and sip on bubbly from the cash bar. Now that's what we call party planning.

WHERE: Castaway Portland

WHEN: October 21 at 5–9 p.m.

HOW: Tickets are $12; purchase tickets online.
