Inexpensive Wedding and Reception Venues in Arizona?

April 21, 2011

A bride with the Arizona cliffs in the background.I am just wanting to know if anyone could help me out with some names of places to get married in AZ. I am looking for package type deals for the ceremony and reception, but every place I've looked at is like 15,000-20,000. (ouch!)

Have the wedding in your church and reception in the fellowship hall. That is as cheap as you will find. For reception food, if you want a meal have it be kind of a potluck deal, with yourself furnishing the cake. The least expensive way to go would be to schedule the wedding for a time of day that guests won't expect a meal and just serve cake, punch, coffee, and tea.

I read this in a Bride magazine and it was so romantic for us! We invited a dozen family members, the closest ones. Then after our marriage was performed in our home by this really nice older justice of the peace.


We served a formal dinner to our family that we made ourselves. Very elegant and we had everyone close around the table give us their best marital advice. Very sweet if I must say so myself.

Check the Wright House in Mesa. It's beautiful and reasonable.

I'm getting married in December. I have a really low budget because I don't want to spend thousands of dollars for one day. I need to find somewhere cheap but elegant for my day.

Talk to people you know who have beautiful spaces, and tell them you're looking for a beautiful and inexpensive place for your wedding. I did that quite by accident, never dreaming I would be offered the use of my hairdresser's upscale shop - he said "Oh, we do all our parties right here" and showed me how they had made covers for the sinks and chairs so you couldn't tell it was a hairdressing salon. They had a kitchen and the shop was built on a pier at a marina overlooking the water, right next to one of Seattle's finest restaurants.


The reception photos look as if we had the reception on a yacht! So talk it up to everyone you know - you never know what might turn up.

Someone else I know had their wedding in a city park - all they had to do was get an inexpensive permit and use a secluded spot so the general public would be less apt to wander through. Many city parks or historic sites have some kind of interesting building that could accommodate a reception. Look at your community with new eyes, and think of spaces where you personally go just to feel good.

I'd suggest looking at schools or community halls. My mother got married at a botanical garden (in summer) and had her reception in my school's cafetaria.


Also, research ideas online - there's a lot a good advice out there. All the best.
