Over the next few weeks we're going to be highlighting a few wedding venues in the home towns of our bridal boutiques! Since the very first Brilliant Bridal store opened in Mesa, AZ in 2011, we thought we would start first with our flagship state! Arizona has many beautiful wedding venues to suit a variety of bridal styles. Any bride getting married in Arizona is lucky enough to be able to select from over 30 wedding venues just in the Phoenix Valley! It was difficult to select our favorites, so we narrowed down our favorite Arizona wedding venues by style category.
