While the rest of the nation is dealing with rain and snow, Arizona wedding season is in full swing. This is our time of year; the time of year everyone is jealous of our amazing weather, wishing they could have an Arizona wedding in the middle of March under blue skies and desert sunsets. There is no better place to be this time of year!

Spring is prime time, wedding season for Arizona, and if you are recently engaged it’s the perfect time to start thinking about where you’re going to spend your special day, and what time of year you are going to spend it.

So, what’s the first step in your wedding planning? The budget, of course. Setting your budget is extremely important. If you can prioritize what you need and what can eat into you r budget and what can be sacrificed, you’ll have an easier time getting through the entire wedding process.

After setting your budget, sit down and really decide what is important to you. What do you want to include in your Arizona wedding? What can you not live without having on your big day? What kind of personality do you have? Are you a perfectionist who will care whether a detail has been ignored, or are you more laid back and will be able to let some details slide?

There are a billion questions that you should ask yourself when planning your Arizona wedding. Do you want a sunset wedding? A wedding by the lake? Indoors, outdoors? Colors? Food? Music? The list can be never-ending and overwhelming.

A bit of advice, ask anyone who has been through that big day and they will probably tell you that no matter what went wrong, no matter which details were overlooked, nothing affected how perfect it was. Your Arizona wedding will be amazing, even if things don’t go exactly as planned. You should probably start preparing for the fact that not everything will go exactly as planned, even if you’ve spent extra to make sure it does.

At Val Vista Lakes, you get the best of all worlds. With years of experience in getting the job done and making weddings absolutely amazing, they also have a price that will fit your budget. Right now during Arizona wedding season, there is a reason that Val Vista Lakes is one of the most popular places in the Valley to have a wedding.

We recently had a mother-of-the-bride come down to Gilbert from Scottsdale to check out the wedding venue. She had heard about the great prices, but wanted to see if it could stack up against the more expensive Scottsdale wedding venues.

Now, you have to realize that this is like someone from Los Angeles heading to ‘the la valley’ to look at a wedding venue. This is something that just doesn’t happen. But, in our case the Scottsdale mother-of-the-bride loved her Gilbert wedding option.

“How can you be so affordable,” she asked, assuming that a Gilbert wedding venue could never compare to something in Scottsdale. “This place is great.”

The answer, we’ve been doing this for a long time and know how to keep our couples happy. So, when you’re setting that budget and looking for your Arizona wedding venue, check out Val Vista Lakes.
