Windy Wedding Tips

Surprisingly, I don't think we've ever written a blog about what to do should your wedding become overrun with a wind storm. In Arizona, it's well known that a wedding in the summertime could result in a monsoon setting in or a dust storm raging through at any moment. 

But, this time of year, its' not something that you're expecting. So, today let's talk a bit about what you can do should the winds sneak up on your and your wedding.

Summer Wedding Tips

The summer weather is creeping up fast, and if you're getting married during an Arizona summer, you'll need these wedding tips. 

You see, it's not the heat that will get to you, it's...well...actually it is the heat. Even in the beginning of April Gilbert, Arizona is hitting temperatures well into the 90's and above. While the evenings and early mornings are still incredibly beautiful, the afternoons through sunset can be toasty, especially for those out of town guests who aren't acclimated to the desert heat.

Wedding Cookies, Cakes and More for Your Sweet Tooth

I don't know about you, but I have a sweet tooth. Easter was filled with Cadbury Eggs, Jelly Beans, Chocolate Bunnies and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Of course, we also had some Easter-themed cookies and pies, which were amazing. 

It got me thinking about how you can incorporate more sweetness and sugar into your wedding, which, of course, brought me to Pinterest to check out the wedding cookie and dessert ideas.

Arizona in the spring is beyond beautiful. It's magical. And Spring at Val Vista Lakes is beyond your wildest imagination.

Springtime in Arizona is like nothing else in the nation. The Midwest has it's beautiful Falls, California has the best summers, but Arizona definitely has the best Spring. Did you see the sunrise this morning? Did you see the white, puffy clouds, rainbow and feel the cool breeze? 

There's just something about Arizona in the Spring that makes you want to stand in front of your loved ones and say "I Do." The colors of Spring tend to include pastel pinks, blues, reds, purples, and oranges. The colors are softer, gentler, and yet more vibrant and emotional. 

Today, I want to share with you some Springtime wedding cake ideas that will inspire some imagination for your own wedding...
