Irish Cultural Center
AZ Irish Cultural Center is a neatly little hidden secret within the valley. We were looking for a small garden with a neat little reception room next to it. Compared with other locations it has a great price. The reception hall has one of the most beautiful wooden floors, and if you have a smaller wedding its great. Although, you will have to find your own caterer.

Junes Bridal is the location I used for Bridal gowns. I went to almost every single store within the valley looking for the specific style and desired bead pattern of gown. Apparently, mermaid style dresses are still not that popular. Though they seem to be a smaller store they can order almost any style of dress for lower prices. There was a long wait involved, but in the end it was worth it.

Food Caterers were a different story. Neither my future husband nor I could agree upon the menu. We ended up serving lentil soup, rice, chicken, salad, and potatoes. It is surprising how difficult it is to find caterers that will serve what you need for the right price. Taste was very important to my future husband, being an amateur chef. We decided to go with Pita Jungle, Yes they do cater meals. The downside was we had to find other people to be responsible for the set up and serving the meals. The food was great, but if you need service as well you may need extra time to plan ahead.
