Hi Jess,

I wasn’t an albuquerque bride per se.  I have lived here for 3 years and went to a ton of bridal shows, but our wedding was in Florida!

There are a ton of shows it seems in albuquerque, they are very helpful IMO. Also, if you need help with finding a dress/seamstress, etc, let me know.

Good Luck and happy planning!

Hi! I know this post is from forever ago, but I never saw it because I assumed there wouldn’t be a New Mexico category under local boards, so I just never checked! I’m living in Albuquerque but my wedding is going to be in Durango, CO. 

It doesn’t look like there are too many of us in NM! Nice to see there are a few, though. πŸ™‚ Happy planning…

Hi girls!  I’m from Denver, but we are having our wedding in Taos next summer.  Do you know of any good dj’s that will work in Taos?  We seem to be having the most trouble finding this vendor.

Thanks!

I live in Chicago but am 99% I’ll be having an Albuquerque wedding!  So exciting but not a lot of ABQ info online.

Im originally from Albuquerque, my whole family is there.  Moved to Chicago to be with my fiancee.  Love Chicago, but its super expensive.

We’re thinking of having the wedding ceremony and reception at the Balloon Museum on the lawn area in the back, which is perfectly manicured.  I’m a little worried about the heat, but end of May shouldnt be too too bad.  Now its a matter of picking all the other vendors.  How about you, where, when, how?

I’ve heard of a few weddings at the Balloon Museum and I’ve heard it’s gorgeous! The end of May should be fine, I think.

I don’t think they’ve had too many outdoor weddings and the coordinator is barely going through her first wedding season.  She’s really great and helpful, she just has no clue if she can find me pictures of any of their outdoor weddings, etc. 

I am a little worried about cake.  I know all the big players for cake shops and just wished I could find something a little more outside the box with flavors.  Any suggestions?

I will also be getting married in ABQ next October.  I might be posting questions about florists, DJs,etc, because I also don’t live in ABQ right now.  I just returned from ABQ after checking out numerous venues.  I was primarily looking at B & Bs and wasn’t too impressed – I might have to go back for a second trip!!!

Yep I’m an ABQ bride!  But living in Denver, so planning is pain from a distance!  So glad there are few other brides on here, because the info for ABQ on the web is limited!

I’m an ABQ bride! Both me and my fiance are from here so I’m very familiar with the area.  Balloon Museum is gorgeous! I think it’s a great choice! I’m getting married may 22, 2010 at the hyatt tamaya outside in the hummingbird garden (lovely).  The weather should be totally comfortable at that point. Still spring, not quite monsoon season πŸ™‚ If you aren’t sold on the balloon museum try: Casa Rondena winery, the biopark, hotel albuquerque, ABQ museum of art & history, or the hyatt tamaya πŸ™‚

well I signed a contract with Balloon Museum – as long as I can get through the non responsiveness of the venue, it will all be beautiful.  I love love love working with Myra with Slate Street as my caterer – and I think I’m going to sign a contract with a photographer in the next few weeks.  Less than 9 months to go!
