Hi CellaDee!

I am an Albuquerque bride too. I looked at sooo many places. Right now I am trying to decide between Bishop’s Lodge in Santa Fe, and the Kiwanis Open Space at the foothills. Money is hte main factor…as in…will there be any? haha

What have you thought of?

I have a friend who was recently married at Bishop’s Lodge and she loved it.  Her planner got her a GREAT deal of the food there (the planner more than paid for herself with the amount they saved), so even if you don’t have a planner it might be worth it to see if you can negotiate prices with them.

I have another friend who is having her reception at the Agave del sol event center and is very pleased with the prices.

@CellaDee: I live in Durango, CO, but will be getting married in Santa Fe this September.  I lived in NM for 10 years & worked for a caterer there.  I think Los Poblanos and Casa de Suenos in Albuquerque are very nice.  We are looking for a private home to have our small (30pp) wedding.  So far, not much luck.

  • Wedding: June 2012

@Butterfly119: I am getting married on June 16, 2012 and our ceremony is being held at Elena Gallegos. It definitely is not widely known probably due to the casual-ness of the location. However, this spot has huge sentimental value to my honey and I (this is our hiking spot since we first started dating!).

We are renting out the Double Shelter area (can’t book it until November due to park people getting first dibs) and it holds 50. We are only having our ceremony here and then our reception at Sandia Golf Club. It costs $50 dollars to rent and it has beautiful ampitheater seating with views of the city and the mountains behind everyone. I know the Kiwanis shelter has plenty of room for catering (and way more capacity for people) and has a covered area, but our only con was that it didn’t have as good as a view. However, for our ceremony, that was the important piece which may not be the case for you! It also is just as inexpensive, I think around 100 dollars.

 

I know you posted this awhile ago but I just found it and thought I would place my input in case you were still looking! We are so excited to be wed at Elena Gallegos and whatever you decide on, you will be just as excited. We are also quite budget conscious 🙂 Best of luck to you! We’re both nearing the 6 month mark, how exciting 🙂

Hello Ladies

I am a bride new to ABQ. My Fiance and I just moved here about 8 months ago. We are having our wedding here at the Hyatt Downtown. (both the ceremony and reception). We was very pleased with the price and the quality of everything.

Hi all,

Has anyone looked into Los Poblanos?  Do you know what their prices are like, or if it’s through-the-roof pricey?  How about any comparable venues?

@gracie2011:  Hey Gracie, I looked at it.  It’s really pretty, but it was a little pricey as I recall (depends on your budget of course).   I didn’t look much into it since it was out of the way for me, geographically speaking.   (I wanted to get married in SF) If you want, pm me and I can send you the email they sent me, I believe it outlined the prices.

@Butterfly119:  Did you end up deciding on Bishops lodge? I’ve been to a couple functions there and loved the landscape. I thought their service was excellent too (they flew in fresh flower lays for us and served our drinks in a coconut).  Also road horses and had a great time. Wondering what kind of options they have for brides?

I’m a Santa Fe bride- looked at a few venues, could help you if you tell me when you’re getting married, how many people and what kind of venue (outdoor, formal, etc.) and price range.
