It's hot. It's sticky. And there seems to be a swirling mist of dust off in the distance...

It's monsoon season in Arizona, and that could mean some trouble for your Gilbert wedding. From the torrential downpours to the haboobs, not to mention close lightening and loud thunder, Arizona monsoon season can be unpredictable...not a word you want to hear when planning your wedding.

But, fortunately, the wedding pro's here at Val Vista Lakes know just what to do to have your wedding go off without a hitch, no matter what time of year it is. 

So, what are some of the options available to keep your wedding on track during an unpredictable Arizona monsoon season? Let's take a look...

Head Indoors: This one seems pretty common sense, but many wedding venues across Gilbert don't have an indoor/outdoor wedding option. In fact, there are some that don't have a Plan B for bad weather, or will charge you extra should it rain and you have to head indoors!

Talk to the wedding professionals here at Val Vista Lakes about our Plan B should it rain. 

Watch the Weather: In Arizona, monsoons tend to come in waves. We'll get a wave of monsoons that roll in every night for a few days, and then we'll get nothing for a week. Be mindful of the weather, and know that a wedding during monsoon season could mean rain and dust. 

Block the Wind: Sometimes, monsoon season can bring nothing more than strong gusts. If that's the case, talk to your wedding coordinator about some wind-blocking options. 

Early Wedding: Arizona very rarely gets monsoons early in the day. If your Gilbert wedding is before lunch, you're safe. If you're Gilbert wedding is closer to dinnertime, be on the lookout for that monsoon storm rolling in. 

In any case, talk to the wedding professionals here at Val Vista Lakes. We always have a Plan B an want nothing more than to help you have the perfect wedding day...no matter what the weather.
