Average Wedding budget for Portland, Oregon

How far will $23,000 get you when planning a wedding in Portland?

The number one mistake you can make when planning your Portland, Oregon wedding is assuming what a vendor charges while planning your budget. First, do your homework! Below is a list of some of the averages of Portland area wedding vendors. The average number of wedding guests in Portland, Oregon is around 125 people. Remember, the more people you have, the more expensive the wedding is usually!

Here is the average price of Portland vendors.

Some of these averages are on the high side, but for professional services, you want to hire a reputable professional! You most likely won’t need all these services, but it’s a good idea to do your research on the kind of vendors you want. If you want a country club wedding, be prepared to pay country club prices for all your vendors! Don’t go cheap on the rest of your wedding, because your guests can tell when they are eating horrible food listening to bad music when the flowers are abundant and the dress is dripping in bling!

The budget below is a somewhat ideal $23,000 budget, which is the average wedding budget in Portland, Oregon.

If you choose a Friday, Sunday or weekday, you can often save 10-20% on your budget. Not all vendors will give you a deal, but it doesn’t hurt to ask, right?
