Hi friends, I am so glad you are here for today’s post: Hidden Gems For The DIY Couple.
I’ve been recently blogging a lot about beautiful co-working spaces or coffeehouse for entrepreneurs to work remotely. It’s a great subject for me to blog about, simply because since I offer membership based photography content for creatives. And many of them are looking for great spaces to get out of the house to work. What about for all my newly engaged couples looking for venues? I am missing something here! So I started a series of posts featuring local Arizona wedding venues specifically DIY friendly. This series is about Hidden Gems for The DIY couples. The first post was on Shenandoah Mill.
Today I will highlight
To start this post I will give you some helpful tips for how to get started figuring out a venue.
There are some great recourses for planning your wedding here in Az. Local magazines are a great place to start. Some have a list of all the venues and options they offer as well as general price points.
I am guessing that Arizona Finest might have the best bet for venues. Highlighting venues is specifically what they do. Keep in mind, that if the venue doesn’t pay to advertise they won’t be in the magazine sadly. So don’t stop your search there, use other resources like Google, Wedding Wire, Style Me Pretty,
But in general, they are really good at what they do. They seek out venues and get them out to the clientele. So they will have a list of many venues here in Az that host weddings frequently. So give them a chance and check them out when you first start searching. You can usually find the magazines at the bridal show. FYI the next show is June 2nd 2019 at the Phoenix Convention Center… and I’ll be there too! Come say HI!
So let’s move on to highlight Schnepf Farms!
