Phoenix Wedding Guide


Planning a Phoenix Wedding

Before you launch into the hectic and exciting months that will be known as your ‘planning phase,’ there are many things to consider when planning your Phoenix wedding. This is especially true if you’re not a Phoenix local, because you may not know quite what to expect from the climate, the city itself, and the merchants you’ll need to pull off your big day.

Phoenix Wedding Tips: Weather and Climate

The most popular wedding months in Phoenix are June, August and September – coinciding perfectly with the hottest months of the year.  The temperatures often reach sweltering heights, even shooting up to 110 degrees, on occasion.  This is something you’ll need to consider for your Phoenix wedding - as the wedding gown, other ensembles, and guests’ comfort must be taken into consideration. 

Catering and food should be considered carefully as well, since the heat can affect these choices.  There are a number of beautiful indoor locations for your Phoenix wedding, so if the wedding will take place during the hottest months, this may be something you want to consider.


A Picturesque Phoenix Wedding

‘The Valley of the Sun’ is a sultry, historical, and lovely location for a wedding with a number of visually stunning backdrops.  Consider the theme you’ve chosen for your wedding before booking a Phoenix wedding location.  The theme will give you some direction for choosing a location and deciding whether an indoor or outdoor wedding is what you want.


A Destination Phoenix Wedding

If you’re traveling to Phoenix for your wedding, and your guests will come from out of town as well, there are a few tips you’ll want to remember.  Familiarize yourself with the wedding venue and surrounding areas before the wedding day.  Locate the nearest alteration shops for any last-minute bridal attire mishaps. Research restaurants, salons and other shops or boutiques that you'll need to utilize.  Inform your guests of the nearest hotels and dining choices, as well as supermarkets or department stores for spur-of-the-moment needs. With extra preparation and thorough planning, your destination Phoenix wedding is sure to be a hit!
