"Don’t stress out about the little details. It won’t matter if it is windier than expected, or if your linens don’t match the napkins perfectly, or if a few flowers are not standing at fresh-cut attention.

Remember - a variety of packages are available for each couple and range in price, detail, and location within the resort. The choice is yours! Some packages let you sit back and relax while an attentive staff does all of the planning, and others allow you to really become involved in the process.
Personalizing Your Event
A great way to personalize your event is with the food! Today, more and more resort venues are creating personalized dishes that appeal to the bride and groom rather than offering only the traditional chicken or fish entrees. "We love signature cocktails and fun menus," states Carrie Bay less & Lindsay Russell, Catering Sales Managers at the Arizona Biltmore. "Our executive chef is always available when menu planning to add special touches and even include family recipes."
A more subtle personalization comes simply from you and your soon-to-be husband’s unique tastes. Your event’s location within the resort can also make your event distinctive. "We are able to provide a variety of different venue choices for events including a phenomenal outdoor ceremony site with amazing views of Camelback Mountain, beautiful ballrooms, an outdoor Spanish courtyard, and even a putting green and cookout corral for your wedding weekend festivities," suggests Andrea Walls, Catering Sales Manager at Scottsdale Cottonwoods Resort & Suites.
