Big news for Portland’s betrothed—Portland Parks and Recreation recently changed its wedding reservation system. While queueing up at the PPR office in hopes of scoring a coveted wedding date at one of the city’s parks had been a rite of passage for many engaged couples, others found themselves literally out in the cold, since the previous booking system operated on a first-come, first-serve basis. But beginning with this upcoming 2018 wedding season, the city has switched over to a lottery system, which means all entrants get an equal opportunity to score the site and date of their dreams. Feeling lucky? Enter the lottery before December 14 and tune in to the Portland Parks Facebook page on December 15 for the live drawing, which starts at 10am. We’ve got our fingers crossed for you!
