What a weekend! And I mean that in the best sort of way. I didn’t make much of a fuss about buying my wedding dress, but I’m so glad my sister did. She found the most amazing vintage shop down in Portland Oregon, Xtabay. We drove down for the weekend with our mom and a couple of my sister’s closest friends. We came, we mimosa-ed, we shopped. Then we had a little more fun.
I highly recommend Xtabay for the quintessential wedding dress shopping experience. Every detail was perfect. And when we’d finally seen enough, we hopped down to the main store downstairs and shopped a bit more. It was curated perfectly, every piece was a dream. I held back and just picked up a sweet, short yellow jacket for myself, but my sister really cleaned up.
After exploring a little more of Portland, we wined at dined at the Zeus Cafe (delicious! love those McMenamins spots!), hit the photo booth at the Ace Hotel, and danced the night away at Kell’s.
I’m thinking we should have ladies weekends more often.
