It’s About the Groom Too!

Even though the bride & her gown are the center of the event, it’s about you to, the groom!

While everyone is watching her walk down the aisle she will be looking at you during that important moment. So until then you need to have as much fun helping in planning your event as your beautiful bride-to-be is. While she is picking china patterns for the reception you have a few categories you need to be thinking of…


You have 6 choices to make before you can order or rent your formal wear that you will sport on your special day… you need to pick the style of your jacket, pants, shirt, tie/ vest, shoes & cuff links.

According to many of Portland’s formal wear & tuxedo specialist , the popular styles that the local grooms are choosing right now are a sophisicated grey suit and the second choice is a classic 2 button, notch lapel black tuxedo.


This isn’t just for you & your bride anymore, it for the whole party plus more. Check out all the great possibilities Portland has to offer like trolleys, shuttles & buses.

Double Decker PDX would be a great choice  to celebrate your big day with or cruise the scenic wine country, even a bar hopping bachelor party.

If you are wanting something spectacular for your bride, a vintage Rolls Royce is great choice.

Bachelor Party

This party is only limited by the best man’s imagination but there are some great things to put on the top of your list to check out.. If you are wanting the VIP treatment for your dinner experience you have to book the private dinning area at Morton’s The Steakhouse downtown Portland. What man doesn’t enjoy a USDA Prime aged steak, even if your best man has other ideas this restaurant is a must for the rehearsal dinner.

Many grooms have decided to make the bachelor party last for days, like a weekend of golfing at one of Oregon’s premier golf courses. You can even take you guys to Sandpipes on the Oregon Dunes in Florence, Oregon for a golfing weekend then you can throw in some ATV riding. Of course you can always go to Las Vegas,  Happy planning…..


Local beer is the only way to go in the NW.. You & your guys can do tours then tastings at Portland’s very own Widmer Brewery , 929 N. Russel St. Portland, Or. On Friday & Saturday they offer tours at no charge so you can see how the award winning beer is made before you head over to their Gasthaus Pub across the street to enjoy the brew with lunch.

Why stop there you can jump across the river and head over to BridgePort Brewery in Portland’s own Pearl District.

You & your crew can enjoy more of Portland’s suds by taking some home or even for the wedding, pick up a keg.
