Basketball Courtship

Maybe we keep bad company, but most people we know judge weddings on only two criteria: the quality of food and the quantity of alcohol.

If you’re looking to get a head start on your night of gluttony and binge-drinking, uh, wedding planning, make your way to US Airways Center for Brides and Basketball. The event will feature information from the Phoenix Bridal Show, giving you and your intended a chance to gather information on photographers, music, cakes, gowns, and banquet halls in one fell swoop. Afterward, snuggle with your betrothed while the Phoenix Mercury take on the Indiana Fever in a potential Finals preview at 7.
