Small Arizona Wedding

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to introduce myself to the board. My name is Karen and I'm from the Columbus, OH area. My fiance and I are planning a small, outdoor destination wedding in Arizona on June 12th, 2010. Initially we started planning for a cruise wedding last year but changed our minds due to a number of factor. I'm not sure how often I'll be on the board my job keeps me very busy, but I signed up so that I could browse ceremony ideas and vendor recommendations. So far we've only booked a hotel and a florist so there's a long way to go. Luckily our wedding is very small with only a couple attendants so we're hoping that will keep things relatively fuss-free and stress-free. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome Karen! Sedona is one of my favorite places. We took our engagement pics at Red Rock Crossing in June and the weather was so awesome. And one of my un-bridesmaids was married at Merry-Go-Round Rock in July. Let me know if you want to see pics. Happy planning :)

Congrats and welcome to the forum!! I'm also from the Columbus area - glad to see another bride on here! I love Arizona, y FI and I went on vacation there last March and literally went from one end of the state to the other. Sedona is gorgeous and there was actually a wedding going on while I was there, looked beautiful! Good luck with all your planning!!

Thanks for the welcome! We're still trying to decide between Red Rock Crossing and Bell Rock for the ceremony. It's going to be a small wedding party so we still have time to figure it out. We're thinking of taking a trip there again in November or December to make some final decisions.

Okay, this is probably a stupid question, but in what category should I start a thread to find other brides marrying in Sedona, Arizona? It looks like the only US Mainland categories are Las Vegas, California, Hawaii, etc.

Hey Karen and Andy,

Welcome to the forum - it's a great group of girls here. There are even 5 or 6 of us in AZ. There aren't a lot of people on the forum getting married in AZ but it is a very romantic state with a lot of venue choices. From Sedona and Oak Creek, to Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon.

I live in Phoenix, two hours from Sedona. I also coordinate destination weddings. I'd be happy to help in any way possible, even if it's just going up to Sedona, taking pictures for you and giving you a candid opinion on location.

 

Have fun and congratulations on your engagement.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
