chose the perfect venue for your wedding

Creating the perfect setting for your Big Day is of the utmost importance – especially if you want this special event to mirror your own style and the story that stands behind the big “I Do”.

How to choose the right setting for your wedding? Here are some tips to help you with this.

·       Want to have a large, fabulously glamorous wedding? The best location for this type of event is, of course, a ballroom. However, keep in mind that you don’t have to stick with the traditional look of a ballroom too (e.g. you can ditch the round tables for the long, family-style ones, you can drape the space, you can add special lighting, and so on).

·       If you are the type of couple who wants a smaller wedding, having it in a small restaurant or venue is a really amazing solution. To make this space feel more personal and cozier, remember to add proper lighting into the décor (ideally, candles will create a very warm, romantic vibe). Furthermore, it is also recommended to personalize the space with your own curtains, elements that represent you and your loved one, and flowers that are complementary to the décor.

·       Last, but definitely not least, if you want to have an outdoor wedding, be sure to put your guests’ comfort before anything else. From their seats to the temperature of the space and to the availability of bug repellents, you should ensure nothing misses from the “perfect evening mix”. Also, it would be best if you delimitated the space a little – such as by setting up a tent, or some drapes to make the space feel cozier and more personal.

Tips for the Maid of Honor

Maid of Honor duties

Maid of Honor duties

Have you been chosen as a Maid of Honor? You must be feeling more than special! However, please remember that this role comes with a lot of responsibility as well – and the bride relies on you to help her plan the Big Day.

What are some of the most important things a Maid of Honor has to do? We have some tips for you – continue reading and find out more.

·       Be the one to coordinate and communicate with the other bridesmaids. Given that the bride has a lot of things to do before the Big Day, she may not always have the time to communicate with each bridesmaid in particular – so this task will fall unto your shoulders. Make sure the ladies get all the messages, relay important messages they have for the bride, and, of course, make sure they all get their dresses in time too.

·       Plan the bridal shower and the bachelorette party. Most of the times, planning the pre-wedding events is the duty of the Maid of Honor – so be sure to make them unforgettable. You don’t have to stick with traditional activities for these parties, though – be creative and plan something you know the bride will love.

·       Be there for your friend. Before the wedding day when she’s setting up everything, on the wedding day when she’s getting ready or when she simply needs a break from all the agitation, after the wedding when she is sending her Thank You notes – your friend will need you with her. Be the one to put a smile on her face!

Regardless of the vendors your friend may be searching for, don’t forget to remind her of New Mexico Wedding Expos & Guide. Tell her to come here and we bet she’ll love the beautiful range of talented wedding specialists we’ve brought in!

Tips for saving money for your wedding

Money-saving tips for your wedding

Money-saving tips for your wedding

Your wedding day is one of the most amazing ones in your entire life – so it’s more than natural that you want everything about it to be really beautiful. Does this mean you have to spend a fortune on everything – ranging from the dress and down to the Thank You Notes?

We have some tips to help you save money the easy way – read on and find out more.

·       It’s very important to choose the right ceremony site. If you want to maximize your savings and spend your money on something that has a special significance for you, try to find an unconventional place for your big moment. If you want a religious wedding, a chapel, church, or a place of worship will both be an excellent choice. If you want something different, try to find a garden or simply have a city hall wedding.

·       As for the wedding reception venue, avoid large ballrooms and luxurious locations. Instead, opt for something simpler and more naturally beautiful (this will help you save big money on flowers and décor as well). A garden, a museum, an old library – they can all play the part for your wedding reception venue and they are absolutely amazing and unique as well.

·       Looking to save money on the wedding itself? Focus on the basics: good music and delicious foods. Skip the champagne toast and invite guests to toast with whatever drinks they have on hand. Play great music and make sure everyone’s having the time of their lives on the dance floor. Serve comfort foods and mouthwatering sweets. Guests don’t need more than that, really.

Décor inspiration for your wedding

Decor for your wedding

Decor for your wedding

The success of a wedding relies on a lot of factors – but one of the most important ones is the ambiance you create for your guests. Of course, your wedding décor is a huge part of this!

How do you decorate your big day in a stylish, beautiful, and personal way? We have some wonderful ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Hanging flowers or umbrellas (your choice!). If you want to make your wedding venue feel comfier and cozier, hang florals from the ceiling. They will add a lot more intimacy to the room, and they will also be a wonderful way to complement the entire décor. If you want a more playful approach to this idea, hang opened umbrellas upside-down – they will add so much color to the mix!

·       Family-style dinner. Looking for ways to make your wedding feel comfier? Replace the traditional seated meal with a family-style dinner. Long, rectangular tables are perfect for passing around the different dishes – and they push guests to socialize more with one another too. Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding!

·       Greenery. If you got tired of the old-fashioned roses and peonies, switch to… greenery. What was once considered to be just a complement to the actual floral arrangements is now a piece of décor in its own right – so don’t hesitate to go above and beyond with the greenery.

·       Patterned table linens. A patterned table linen can change the entire appearance of your wedding tables – so don’t be afraid to play around and add a bit of color and uniqueness to your décor.

Still searching for the very best wedding vendors in New Mexico? You should definitely come and visit New Mexico Wedding Expos & Guide – we guarantee your experience with our exhibitors will be a truly remarkable one!

Perfect dresses for your bridesmaids

Bridesmaid dresses

Bridesmaid dresses

As the bride, you want your bridesmaids to reflect your style and elegance in the way they dress. How do you choose really pretty dresses for these special ladies, though? We have gathered some of the most popular bridesmaids’ dresses trends of the year – so read on if you need to search for a bit of inspiration.

·       One-shoulder dresses. Sexy and feminine at the same time, one-shoulder bridesmaids’ dresses have been tremendously popular on the catwalk. If you want to make your best friends feel very spring-like and beautiful, this type of design will definitely complement them.

·       Cotton lace. Delicate, but strong and beautiful, cotton lace is ideal for spring weddings. Not only is the design of the pattern very in tune with the season outside, but the very fabric used for this type of dress is perfect for the spring weather as well.

·       Sheer fabric. Want to make your bridesmaids look whimsically stylish and elegant? Sheer fabrics will help them achieve that superb ethereal vibe all brides love – so why not give your bridesmaids the option to pick a dress that falls into this category?

·       Two-piece. Nobody said your bridesmaids have to wear an actual dress. After all, your weddings – your rules, right? Well, if you want your bridesmaids to stand out and send a powerful fashion statement, search for two-piece combinations that look good on them (and with your wedding). For instance, a simple mid-length skirt and an off-the-shoulder crop top can look absolutely breathtaking on a bridesmaid!

Plan your large wedding the right way

How to plan a large wedding

How to plan a large wedding

Planning a large wedding is very far from an easy job. In fact, no matter the size of your big day, putting all the details together will always seem like a huge source of stress and anxiety. Understandably, you want this day to be perfect from all points of view – so, how do you actually plan a large wedding? We’ve got some tips for you – read on and find out more.

·       First of all, it’s perfectly OK to want a large wedding. However, this doesn’t mean you have to invite everyone you have ever known. In fact, if you haven’t spoken with a person in more than five years, or if you don’t think you can maintain a proper conversation with them for more than five minutes, it is probably a good idea to skip inviting them.

·       Meet and greet everyone. Yes, smiling and changing a few words with 200+ guests will be time-consuming. But it is very important – so, try to mingle and greet each wedding table properly. Trust us, it can make all the difference in the world.

·       Your venue should be large enough for everyone to fit in. And no, don’t just assume some of the invited people won’t come – you need to be prepared for the largest number, not for the smallest. Also, remember to ask your venue about their A/C – given that there will be a lot of people gathered in one place, dancing and moving around, good air conditioning will be a true must.

Choose a classy color palette for your big day

Wedding Color Schemes

Wedding Color Schemes

Colors have truly amazing powers – so it is very important that you choose the right color palette for your big day. How do you do that, and what are some of the prettiest, classiest and most timeless wedding color combinations? We have gathered some ideas to inspire you right below – so read on and find out more.

·       Black and white. There’s literally no other color palette more timeless or more versatile than this – whether it is weddings, corporate events, birthdays or just every day fashion you are thinking of. If you want to make it a bit livelier, you can always add a pop of color into the mix and it will always work perfectly!

·       Red and gold. The passion and warmth of red and the preciousness of gold look splendid together – and you will see this most frequently in Indian weddings, but it can be totally pulled off in any other type of wedding as well.  Perfect for a couple who wants a dash of glamor sprinkled into their big day! PS: if you want to tone it down a bit, you can always settle on a red and silver combo – it will look just as precious and elegant!

·       Lavender and sage. Muted and calm, but utterly beautiful and elegant, lavender and sage shades are ideal for a classy spring wedding. Plus, this gives you the opportunity to incorporate actual lavender into your wedding – can you imagine how amazing your big day will smell then?

·       Purple and turquoise. This combination is full of life, youthfulness and energy – and it somehow manages to stay classy as well. It’s a really great color palette for a summer wedding!

Have you considered renting your wedding dress?

Renting a wedding dress

Renting a wedding dress

Naturally, you want to look drop-dead-gorgeous on your wedding day. And while wearing a pretty dress is definitely part of the “deal”, it is also important to consider all of your options before settling on the final one. For example, have you ever considered renting your wedding gown? If not, here are some of the things you might want to keep in mind:

·       It’s cost savvy – and from multiple points of view. First of all, you will not have to spend a small fortune on a dress you will wear once. Furthermore, most rental companies throw in extras with their wedding gowns – so you will not have to pay for the shoes, wedding veil, or other accessories they may be willing to provide you with. Last, but definitely not least, renting your wedding dress also means you can actually wear a superb designer gown for a small price.

·       Renting a dress is also less stressful, from certain points of view at least. For instance, you will not have to worry about having to store the dress after the wedding. Likewise, you will not have to worry about transporting your dress to your destination wedding (especially since a lot of salons offer rental options too, so you can do this at your destination).

·       At the same time, you should also consider the cons of renting the wedding dress. You will have fewer options, both in terms of design and in terms of sizing, and you will not be able to keep this as a memory of the most beautiful day of your life. What’s more, spilling wine or ruining the gown in any way will always mean paying (a lot) more than you initially planned.

New Mexico Wedding Expos & Guide has gathered the most talented and passionate wedding vendors in the entire area of New Mexico. So, if you want to have your wedding here, do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible.

Do you know what the season of your big day says about you?

when to get married - what it says about you

when to get married - what it says about you

Your wedding season is extremely important – not only will it dictate the flowers, the food, and even the décor of your Big Day, but it can also say a lot about you as a couple. What exactly does your wedding season say about you? We have some tips – so read on and learn more.

·       Are you a spring bride? You believe in rejuvenation and you’re packed with positive energy any time of the year. You are a natural wedding planner, and this is one of the main reasons you may adventure yourself towards more intricate wedding ideas.

·       Are you a summer bride? You are bubbly and extroverted, you like being around the people you love, and, most of the times, you are the very soul of the parties you organize and attend. This is precisely why your wedding will be hugely fun too!

·       Are you a fall bride? Well, you don’t care much about tradition and everything it “dictates”.  You do things your own way and you like it like this. You’re prepared to be completely unique with your wedding décor and ideas – and your guests are most likely going to be kept on their toes too.

·       Are you a winter bride? We understand how the magnificent landscape of this splendid season would bewitch a couple. More than that though, you believe in being a genuinely good friend – and you believe in family values. Your wedding will be classy, unforgettable, and very much inspired by fairytales.

Honeymoon Essentials

Essentials for your honeymoon

Essentials for your honeymoon

Every honeymoon needs these essentials

Your honeymoon needs to be perfect – after all, it doesn’t happen every day that you visit a wonderful place as newlyweds, and it is perfectly understandable if you want every single thing about your honeymoon to be memorably beautiful.

What are the essentials you should make sure not to forget at home? Read on and find out more.

·       Jelly sandals – or just any type of casual sandals. Want to look chic and match your footwear with anything you may choose to wear? Jelly sandals are a practical and fun option, especially if you will go to the beach. However, just about any type of comfortable sandals will do the trick.

·       Perfume. Our brains associate certain moments with the smells that surrounded us when they actually happen. Wearing a particular type of perfume or body lotion during the honeymoon can help you reminisce the sweetness, romanticism and beauty of these moments years from now.

·       A scarf. This is the kind of basic accessory you should really make sure not to forget at home. It can protect you from chilly weather, from a few drops of rain, from being too well-known, and it can also look amazing (on your head, or around your neck).

·       A tote bag. Do you have a tote bag that simply works with everything? Be sure to pack it on your honeymoon. Regardless of what you decide to do at your destination, this will help you carry around the important assets, as well as add style to your entire wedding.

No Regret Weddings

Make sure you don't have regrets after your wedding

Make sure you don't have regrets after your wedding

You shouldn’t have regrets about your wedding

Your wedding is a day of absolute happiness and beauty – and it should in no way be associated with any kind of regrets. Yet, what are some of the biggest regrets people have about their own Big Day? We have gathered them below – so read on and find out more.

·       Not hiring a very good photographer. You need your wedding photos to be about more than just the pictures themselves – you need them to be about your story, the things you love about each other, and whatever it is that defines you as a couple.

·       Inviting too many people. Large weddings are fun, but that doesn’t mean you are obliged to invite a lot of people just for the sake of the numbers. Sit down with your fiancé and see which of the guests you can invite and which you should leave off the list. Trust us, it can actually help you release your stress.

·       Not soaking in the beautiful moments of the morning-of. The getting ready, the excited girls, the pre-wedding toast (with or without alcohol) – these things will make for unforgettable memories. Plus, actually enjoying the morning of your wedding will most likely help you understand that you actually need to eat as well.

·       Putting style over your comfort. Now, we know stiletto shoes are superb – but the harsh truth is that they can be horribly uncomfortable. Your dress, your footwear, and even your accessories and style, they should all be highly comfy, so that you can actually spend the entire wedding day in your bridal attire.

Ask wedding florists these questions

Wedding flowers

Wedding flowers

Your wedding florist should be asked these questions

Your wedding flowers are utterly important for you, and that’s completely natural. Of course, you will want to choose a floral style that suits your wedding – but in order to achieve that, you will also have to make sure you hire the right florist too.

How to do that? What are some of the questions to ask your wedding florist before you book them? Read on to find out more.

·       Can they create what you want, within your budget? Asking about money issues may feel uncomfortable most of the times, but it is more than necessary that you really talk to your florist about that. The last thing you want is to not be able to afford paying the bill…

·       Will they provide you with samples? You might not want to see your flowers for the first time on the actual day of the wedding, so we advise you to search for a wedding florist who can provide you with samples before the Big Day.

·       Are your favorite blooms in season? In most cases, off-season flowers cost a lot more than the seasonal ones – and who else has more expertise in this, other than your florist? Ask her about the in-season blooms and how they can be combined for stunning arrangements.

·       Will you have to pay extra for the delivery services? Obviously, you want your flower arrangements to be intact the moment they arrive at your wedding. But keep in mind that some florists charge extra-fees for the delivery services, while others don’t - so it’s best to ask and not be taken by surprise.

Farm-to-table wedding

Represent a farm-to-table wedding

Represent a farm-to-table wedding

Without any trace of doubt, farm and rustic weddings have been extremely popular over the past few years – and you really do have a ton of reasons to love them. Casual, versatile, beautiful, easy to personalize, and definitely unique, these weddings are taking over the world in grand style.

Want a farm-inspired wedding too? Here’s how to decorate your wedding tables in a truly amazing way:

·       Opt for long, rectangular, wooden tables. They are perfect for couples who want to serve “family dinners” to their guests, and they will complement the theme as well. The color of the tables can be dark or light, but keep in mind that it will influence the overall appeal – dark wood tends to be more serious and more “mountainside-like”, while lighter wood is a bit more energizing, casual, and suitable for more locations.

·       Furthermore, your tables may or may not be covered in linens – but, in general, a table runner will be important (especially if you choose to leave the tables “naked”). Pay attention to the way in which you choose your table runners, because they will influence the overall “look”: dark colors are more elegant, bright colors are more youthful, pastels and white are more delicate, and glamorous/patterned runners are more stylish and modern.

·       Of course, the flowers will have a huge influence as well. Generally speaking, low and medium-height vases look best with countryside weddings. In terms of the blooms themselves, you have complete freedom of creativity: classic roses and peonies, arrangements made entirely out of greenery, luxuriant calla lilies and/or orchids – the options are limitless.

Top requirements to a legal marriage

Marriage requirements

Marriage requirements

Getting married is obviously a huge moment in anyone’s life – and while it is definitely important to you that you plan the perfect wedding, it is even more important that you make sure everything is absolutely legal and your marriage will be recognized.

What are the top requirements to a legal marriage? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       You need a marriage license and a marriage certificate. The first can be obtained with no more than 30 days before the wedding – if more time passes, the license will be deemed invalid. The second, on the other hand, is obtained after the marriage and it requires the presence of your wedding officiant (depending on the state where you live, you might have to be present too).

·       You need a legally-recognized officiant. County clerks, judges, justices of peace – they can all act as officiants (and so can religious officiants, such as ministers and rabbis).

·       You need two witnesses. In general, these roles are played by the Maid of Honor and Best Man, but it is not mandatory to do the same. Together with the officiant, the witnesses will sign your marriage certificate to validate it.

·       Remember, it is of the utmost importance that you check with your state’s legislation when it comes to marriages. Laws can vary greatly from one state to another and everything about your wedding can be affected by this, so make sure to run a proper research on this topic.

Create your wedding to stand out

Unique weddings

Unique weddings

In the way we talk, walk, think, and look, we are all unique and unrepeatable. But even more than anything, our stories are unique – and your romance makes no exception from the rule. Thus, it is only natural to want your wedding to be just as special as you, your loved one and your love story are, right?

How to create a wedding that truly stands out? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Sparklers for the First Dance. We bet you’ve seen plenty of wedding exits accompanied by sparklers – but have you ever thought of using these little magic “tricks” for the First Dance? They can create an utterly romantic and elegant atmosphere for such a nice, unforgettable moment – so you should definitely give them a thought.

·       Moss topiaries. Greenery has been more than trendy this year, and many brides even decided to skip the blooms in favor of the green beauties. If you want your wedding centerpieces to stand out in stylishness and uniqueness, skip the flowers too – replace them with original-looking moss topiaries instead. They will look so amazing on your wedding tables, especially if you plan on having an outdoor event!

·       Cheese wheel cake. Sure, we all love cake – but what if you replaced the all-too-traditional tiered wedding cake with cheese wheels? We all love cheese too – and if you provide your guests with a delicious assortment of cheeses, some fruit, and some nuts, they will definitely love the idea!

Honor loved ones within your big day

Bringing honor to your loved ones

Bringing honor to your loved ones

Your big day is all about love – all about people who love each other, commitment, hope, beauty and emotion. Of course you want everyone you like and appreciate to be there for you on such a hugely important, life-changing moment!

How to honor your loved ones within your big day? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Wear heirloom jewelry or accessories. If you have a nice pair of earrings from your grandma, or if your grandpa gave you an amazing pair of cufflinks, feel free to wear them on your wedding day. Not only will you add a very unique, personal touch to your entire wedding attire, but you will also honor your long lost loved ones as well.

·       Create a special photo collage. Sometimes, pictures speak more than a million words – so including a collage of pictures with your loved ones can really make the entire wedding more sentimental, more beautiful and warmer as well.

·       Save them a seat. Even if your loved ones are gone, it doesn’t mean you cannot save them a seat at your wedding. This is an emotional and beautiful way of showing just how important it would have been for you to see this person there, on your wedding day.

·       Add them to the wedding program. A simple tribute in the program can go a long while and remind everyone just how much you care about them.

Add Style to your Wedding

Top tips to styling your wedding

As a bride, you definitely want your wedding to be stylish and unique – and thankfully, the wedding trends out there provide us all with plenty of inspiration. What are the latest ideas? What are the top tips to styling your wedding? Read on and find out more.

Add a dash of stylish black. Many people believe black is not suitable for a wedding – but if you want to keep it elegant and sophisticated, this is a truly perfect color to include in the Big Day. Combine it with white and pops of brighter colors or pastels and it will look amazing.

·       New nautical style. If you thought the nautical style is long gone, you were very wrong. In fact, it’s coming back in full force, and with a new “face”. The new, preppy-chic, urbanized nautical style is perfect for a modern couple who wants to have a very unique wedding day.

·       Beyond the classic sweets. Want to amaze your guests with very special sweet treats? The freshest wedding trends will offer so much inspiration when it comes to this! From exquisitely-flavored fairy floss to ice cream macarons, you have a lot of amazing options to choose from.

·       Blossoming flowers. This year, wedding flowers are wildly sprouting here and there, adding a touch of gorgeous, natural “disorder”. Let your imagination roam free when it comes to your florals and you will achieve a superb effect – you will create a welcoming, natural and warm décor for your wedding day.

Consider these factors for your destination wedding

Having a destination wedding is a truly stunning idea, especially if you are charmed by travelling, the beauties of certain places or simply by the adventurous vibe of a destination event. However, before you fully decide on this type of Big Day, it is of the utmost importance that you consider certain factors. Here are some of the most important ones:

·       One of the first things to consider when planning a destination wedding is local legislation. Will your marriage be valid once you return home as well? Depending on where you live and on where you want to travel, you will find that different states and countries apply different laws when it comes to this – so it is essential that you run a research first.

·       Furthermore, your guests will also be a concern. For starters, you will probably receive quite a lot of negative RSVPs. What’s more, you will have to arrange hotel rooms, make sure your guests get there in time and also make sure they will be expected with nice welcome bags at their hotels.

·       Booking vendors from a distance may also seem quite difficult. If you don’t travel to your destination at least once or twice before the wedding, you will have to have your beauty trials right before the wedding day. Furthermore, you will most likely not see your venue in person before the wedding either.

·       Last, but not least, you will also have to think about packing as well. Be sure you take all of your necessities into consideration and pack everything you will need on your wedding day, as well as before and after it.

Your wedding photographer does not need a shot list

Great wedding photography

Great wedding photography

It is more than easy to get swept away by all the pretty trends you constantly pin on your Pinterest wedding board. It is easy to be bewitched by what other people have done at their weddings. And it can be even easier to become super-controlling over every aspect of your Big Day.

While that is perfectly understandable and expectable in many situations, it shouldn’t be so with your wedding photographer. Despite what some may believe, your wedding photographer does not actually need a shot list – and here are the main reasons why:

·       It kills all creativity. You are spending quite a lot of money to work with a genuinely professional photographer – so why not reap all the benefits that come with it? By giving your photographer a shot list, he will be confined to those particular poses – and this kind of rigor is how creativity dies. Let your photographer do his job! Let him follow you around and capture genuine, candid moments! He will love nothing more than doing this!

·       Planned photos look stiff and take time. Bringing all the people together, arranging them in the “right positions”, smiling for the camera – they don’t usually look great in pictures. Unless you are all professional models, you will find it unnatural and odd to pose in very specific stances – and this will transpire in the photos as well.

·       Last, but not least, your planned photos will not seem like “you”. Imitating other people’s poses will take away from your own uniqueness as a couple – and that’s not one of the elements you want to “misplace” in your wedding album!

Plan your Bachelorette Party to Perfection

Bachelorette Parties

Bachelorette Parties

Regardless of whether you are the Maid of Honor and want to plan a perfect bachelorette party for the bride-to-be or you are the bride herself, you will surely want this party to be really memorable. How do you do it? How do you plan a bachelorette party everyone will remember for the years to come? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

Who gets invited? Since a bachelorette party is far less formal than a bridal shower, you are allowed to invite people who are not necessarily on the wedding guest list (e.g. coworkers, neighbors, and so on).

·       Remember that it is essential to plan everything way ahead of time. Same as with every big party, you will need a location, a theme, food, drinks and other elements that will make the night unforgettable. Also, don’t be afraid to ask other people to enroll in planning (and paying for) the bachelorette party too!

·       Choose the right date. Although it may seem that the traditional bachelorette party date is the day before the wedding, this is a very bad idea. The last thing your friend needs on her Big Day is feeling a little hangover! Our suggestion is that you plan it at least 2-3 days before the actual wedding date.

·       Last, but definitely not least, have fun. Plan some entertaining activities for the bride and the guests, but do make sure the bride won’t do anything she might regret the second day! After all, that’s not something you want to be responsible of, is it?
