Tucson brides, we get you.

Planning a wedding isn’t always a fairytale.

It’s a full-time job. From finding a venue to setting a date to picking the perfect dress and — fitting in it by the time your wedding actually rolls around — it’s a wonder you haven’t eloped yet.

We’ve got your back.

Not only do we work for the Arizona Daily Star’s #ThisIsTucson — we’re also well-acquainted with Tucson’s wedding scene.

Angela is a part-time wedding photographer and married to a full-time wedding DJ. Johanna was recently in your shoes, spending her after-work hours scouring the internet to plan her own Tucson wedding about a year ago. She often wished Tucson had its own searchable database of local wedding vendors.

So we joined forces to track down as many Tucson wedding businesses as possible. We want this guide to be your wedding planning BFF. Keep in mind that most of the listings you see here were submitted by individual business owners.

As your planning progresses, check back for ideas, inspiration and a list that we will keep updating. Make sure to send your partner and bridesmaids here to find ideas on planning the perfect shower or bride-approved bachelor party. You can expect everything to be Tucson-specific.

Congratulations, you’re one step closer to your happily ever after.

If you are a wedding vendor yourself and don’t see your business listed in this guide, send us an email at weddings@tucson.com. It’s free! We want this guide to be as comprehensive as possible.
