While the desert is known for its harsh conditions and arid atmosphere, the dry landscape can also serve as one of the more stunning wedding backdrops in the United States. Sweeping views of the natural wonder of the desert, including towering mountains and infinite plains, create a unique, romantic experience for couples who choose to wed in this particular region. If you’re looking for a location for your big day – and you both don’t mind the heat – there are a variety of opulent venues available: one of the best parts? You’ll have one-of-a-kind photos with views rarely seen in typical wedding albums.
If you’re planning for desert nuptials, you may be at a loss when it comes to décor ideas, as these events are not as commonly done. We’ve complied some of our favorite elements from our desert weddings – and some items we felt would work well in the atmosphere – for the list below. Explore and gain inspiration from each, and click each photo to see the full wedding for more ideas!
