How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue/Location
From farmers markets to great golf weather on our two Nicklaus-designed courses, the arrival of cool fall weather is the signal for many things in Arizona, including weddings. As a premier Phoenix-area wedding venue, Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club looks forward to helping couples begin the next chapter of their life. Whether you choose to have your wedding in our private gated community or another location, consider these factors when selecting the perfect venue for the special day.
Style & Scenery
A difficult tip to describe, this consideration varies from couple to couple. Find a venue that matches your wedding vision. For example, if you’re an avid outdoor enthusiast, find a beautiful open-air venue. Regardless of your tastes, you’ll want a venue that a.) reflects you and your significant other, and b.) is a place you can envision getting married at. Keep an open mind and remember to consider how a venue can change with the addition of tables, décor and lighting.
Some wedding venues go as package deals and include photographers, catering, bartenders and more. If you prefer a one-stop-shop, this is a great value and can help you check a lot off the to-do list at once.
Ask yourself if the venue has enough space for the size of your wedding. You will want to have plenty of room for your wedding day preparation, the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Regardless the size of your wedding, you will want to ensure the venue can accommodate everything.
Parking & Transportation
Considering a venue’s location is very important for not only you, but your attending guests as well. Pay attention to how close the venue to hotels, restaurants and things to do for your visiting guests. If driving is required, double check to see if the venue has ample parking.
Before investigating too deeply into a venue, start off by finding out if the location is available on the date of your wedding. Some venues have online calendars showing its availability, but you can always call or email to double check. Highly touted or popular venues are often booked more than a year out so locking down your wedding venue should be one of your first to-dos as you begin planning.
Keep these suggestions in mind when you begin finding the special place to say, “I do.” For more information on hosting your wedding or other special event at Superstition Mountain, call (480) 983-3200.
