Congratulations on your engagement! I am sure there is a lot of planning to do and perhaps you are still not sure where to host your wedding. If that’s the case, I can suggest the perfect city: Scottsdale, Arizona. The perfect blend of scenery, warmth and entertainment. Located in the grand Phoenix area, Scottsdale is often described as a desert oasis, and here’s why:
- Perfect sunny weather all year round – although summers can get a bit intense.
- The most breathtaking sunsets only the desert sky can offer.
- Trendy shops, bars and restaurants. Scottsdale is all about the luxury and people here are not afraid to enjoy it.
- Crazy nightlife! Not many places allow you to spend a quiet, relaxing day outdoors and then have an epic night filled with music and good drinks!
- Amazing trails to hike or mountain bike, and perfect perches to practice yoga.
This the the best balance for you and your guests. You have plenty to choose from for vendors and your guests will have tons of options for entertainment.
Now that I know I have convinced you, let’s talk about the best part of it: the venues. Every venue in Scottsdale has luxury and elegance as their signature features. No matter which one you choose, you’ll end up with a Hollywood-like wedding but that doesn’t have to mean spending huge amounts of money. We have done all of the research for you and uncovered three stunning venues that will fit right in your budget:
Designer Phoenix Villa – Placed in one of Phoenix’s most prime areas, this brand new mansion is a designer’s masterpiece located in the exclusive town of Paradise Valley, in the Scottsdale District. Overlooking the beautiful sunny valley and the famous Camelback Mountain, this venue offers both entertainment and relaxation for you and 18 other guests during a memorable weekend! Hike, bike, lay by the pool or jump in the car for a one-minute drive to hundreds of trendy bars and shops in Old Town!
Finally, have a romantic outdoor ceremony for up to 100 guests during a priceless sunset, overlooking the majestic desert nature. Click here to book this venue!
The Resort Around the Corner – Why would anyone want to book a room at a resort when you can book an entire house that looks and feels just like one? Have all the privacy, comfort and fun you deserve at this amazing house located in the heart of Scottsdale. While secluded by the beautiful desert nature, this property is actually a few minutes away from all of Scottsdale’s most fun restaurants, bars and shops!
With 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, living room, dinning room, playroom and a heated swimming pool you might consider not even leaving the house! Host a beautiful ceremony for up to 100 guests in the spacious backyard for a celebration you will never forget! Click here to see more of this property!
The Royal Wedding Weekend – I know we are talking about Scottsdale but this venue deserves a shout out for its beauty and creativity! Only a 30-minute drive outside Scottsdale you will encounter this amazingly romantic venue that will make you feel like you traveled back in time. Inspired by 1800’s-style Victorian houses, this venue will make you feel like a princess 24/7!
The best part about this property is that you can decide between two wedding ceremony scenarios! Marry in the front patio facing the amazing Castle or go to the back of the Tuscan Property for a picturesque Venice wedding! Either way, the property is ready to provide you with tables, chairs, special lighting, onsite staff and whatever else you might need to make this day extra special!

All of these properties are around 55% to 86% cheaper than the average venue cost for a boring, traditional wedding venue. Spend a weekend with your family and friends and take advantage of being able to have your rehearsal dinner or after-wedding brunch *in addition* to having your wedding ceremony and reception there. Other venues will not even come close to the experience you’ll have during an entire weekend enjoying all the luxury and style only Scottsdale and these venues can offer!
