According to an article written by the Huffington Post, more than half of Millennials expect to pay for their own wedding, not accepting help from their parents in financing the big day. The old tradition of the Father of the Bride pays for the wedding is a thing of the past. With the rules changing younger generations are becoming more comfortable with asking the groom’s family or taking on the financial responsibility themselves.  

Taking on this financial burden of paying for your wedding with no help can add stress to an event that is supposed the be the best day of your life.  As you begin to start the process on booking a venue, looking for a wedding coordinator, finding a cake… You began to start adding up all the costs and that decision to pay for your wedding yourself doesn’t seem so good.

Luckily, there are ways to cut down on costs that don’t have to impact or prevent you from having the dream wedding you deserve!

Booking a Wedding Venue that includes the Wedding Coordinator

A Golf Course is a great choice because most courses have a wedding coordinator on-site to assist you. At Sedona Golf Resort, our Wedding Coordinator Katie Draxler and her services are included when you host a wedding here. Katie will help you plan your big day whether you are local or from out of state so that you can just enjoy the moment. To view a gallery of images click HERE.

Decorations and Catering

Coming up with your wedding colors and theme are the easy part.  Paying for the decorations can be costly and if you want to ensure you don’t have to bother friends or family for set up and clean up, hiring someone to do this cost extra. Decorations can create a pretty illusion to enhance your wedding ceremony and reception but to save time and more importantly money, why not get married somewhere with amazing views and scenery where no decoration are needed.  Let the surrounding environment be your decorations.  Nature’s most beautiful achievements add splendor to your special day at the Sedona Golf Resort wedding venue, which is considered to be one of the most majestic outdoor wedding destination venues in Arizona.
