For the Jet-setting Bride: A Destination Bash

There will always be Vegas, but with up-and-coming hot spots like Oregon (yes, you read that right), Puerto Rico (check out their surf camps), and even Montana and Wyoming, now is the time to try something new. Portland's West End is gaining popularity; while you're there check out eateries like Clyde Common, which dishes out locally sourced fare, or Gruner, where their chef serves up Alpine comfort food (think: mustard spaetzle with guinea-hen ragu). Enjoy the outdoors in Montana or Wyoming -- resorts like The Resort at Paws Up (PawsUp.com) offer guided activities like off-roading, hot-air ballooning and horseback riding. Finish the day with an upscale dinner at the resort's Pomp, which classifies their cuisine as refined rustic ranch (think: grilled rib eye or Black Angus with caramelized onions).
