When you order your gown from a salon, it's important to triple-check the contract. Read it carefully, so you don't end up with the wrong size or color—and get the designer, style number, measurements, delivery date, price of the gown and number of fittings, as well as the deposit amount, all in writing.

Original Wedding Themes for A Beautiful Wedding

Wedding themes are not a compulsory part of your wedding, but they certainly help to make your wedding planning easier. Once you choose a theme, it becomes easier to pick the colors that go with it, your fashion, decorations, music, and even the wedding menu. A lot of modern weddings are choosing to go with new ideas but if you are one of those people who find comfort in the familiar and traditional, this post is for you. We at New Mexico Wedding Expos and Guides have put together this article to help you decide on a traditional theme. After that, you can then visit our Expos and get all you need to make your themed wedding a success. We host the biggest wedding expos in the state so trust us when we say that you will find whatever you want with us.

Try to schedule your bridal salon appointments all in one day or weekend. This way, each gown is fresh in your mind for comparison; you’re more likely to say “Yes!” if you’re not waiting on another appointment weeks later.

A professional live band or wedding reception dj will not only discuss with you what they do, but also what kind of music you need from them. If you have any special request, they are good listeners and can help make your party more special.

Don't go dress shopping on your own—all the gowns will start to look the same after a while and it will be harder to recall which style you really loved. But be careful about who you do bring. If your mom or sibling can't make the trip, ask a friend who is truly honest. This is the time when you really need to know which dress looks best.

All About 2019 Winter Weddings

Winter weddings are out of the norm but can be a great option for a couple on a budget. It is off-season so you will most likely get discounts from locations and vendors that will help keep your budget and bank accounts safe. Winter weddings differ from weddings in the other three seasons in areas like fashion, time and even food. Here at New Mexico Wedding Expos and Guides, we are committed to keeping you up to date with the latest trends and as winter is fast approaching, we thought we’d drop our 2 cents on winter weddings.

Some bridal boutiques are really popular and you may have to wait several weeks for an appointment, particularly on weekends, evenings, or in January - so if you have your eye on somewhere, book your appointment well in advance.

Budget tip: see if your salon will discount if you buy your veil and accessories when you purchase your gown. This is a common practice to keep all sales within their salon, so don’t be afraid to ask!

Your ideal gown's shape is partly based on the style you like, the venue, and mood of your wedding, and also what flatters your body most. A fit-and-flare is both contemporary and traditional and works on many body types, whereas a simple sheath is best on tall, willowy brides. A voluminous ball gown adds drama, but can overwhelm a petite frame. Mermaid styles show off curves like your favorite pencil skirt.

Definitely Do These Things to Prepare for Your Wedding Day!

This is not a piece where we will list out all the details you have to handle before your wedding day. We’re certain you’re more than familiar with all the steps needed to create the Big Day of your dreams.

This is an article that will focus on that which matters most: your physical and mental health. Yes, wedding planning can be extremely stressful (a fact acknowledged by science itself!). But no, you don’t have to let that take over your life.

What are the things you should definitely do to prepare for the wedding day?

Don't eliminate anything at first glance. If the salesperson brings you something they say you should try, try it—even if you don't initially love it or think it's totally "you." It's possible to fall for a wedding gown you didn't think you'd like or want. Not every dress looks great on a hanger, so let go of any preconceived notions and keep an open mind.

If you plan on having a DJ or a band, be sure to sync with them a few weeks in advance of your big day so they know of what types of songs you’d like them to play. You can give them a “must play list” and a “do not play list” so that they play the songs you absolutely love, and don’t play the songs you dislike!

Wedding Trends That Will Always Be In Style

Wedding planning can be a bulky and stressful affair. Between bookmarking your wish-list vendors, flipping through wedding guides and making other decisions, we at New Mexico Wedding Expos and Guides admit that it can be pretty difficult to narrow down exactly which wedding trends are stylish for now, and those that you can get away with no matter the year. Your wedding is one event whose photos you will always look back on, so we think that including timeless trends in your wedding is a great way to ensure that your wedding memories remain forever young. Having decided on that, here are a few elements that you can customize and incorporate into your day to create a timeless feel.

Consider colour
Maybe you want pure white, maybe you don’t. Maybe you’ll want a blush hue or a champagne tone. Maybe you thought you knew what you wanted but when the shop assistant pulled out a soft blush tulle or an ivory lace your heart skipped a beat… These are all possibilities! Open your mind and try everything to see what you like.

The easiest way to trim your wedding budget? Cut your guest list. Remember, half of your wedding expenses go to wining and dining your guests. If it's costing you $100 per person, eliminating one table of 10 can save you $1,000.

Ask if you'll have exclusive use of the venue. It's important to know how many functions they'll have going on at once and how much interaction there will be between your guests and theirs (if any). The privacy factor differs for every space; some venues may offer separate restrooms and parking areas for guests from different events, while others have the rooms set close together, so you might hear someone else's music pumping from down the hall. If you're getting married outdoors in a public space, such as a park or beach, be aware that strangers may stop to give you their good wishes or find their way into the background of your wedding photos.

Create a schedule for the run-of-show at your wedding. Include things like when vendors will arrive, when the ceremony will be, when the first dance will happen, when the cake will be cut, etc. Be sure to give a copy to your MC, photographer, maid of honor and anyone else that should be in the know.

Start off by doing some research. You can browse thousands of gowns here, bookmark your favorites and share them with your friends, and find salons in your area that carry the dresses you love. Whether you're flipping through magazines or browsing online, it's a good idea to tear out pages or save images to your inspiration board to help zero in on the colors and styles you like best.

Flowers can transform any space! My motto on flowers is you can’t have enough of ’em! And they don’t just have to be used in the centerpiece. They can be hung above you, on chairs, you name it! There’s several ways you can arrange flowers to achieve a look you want. If your budget doesn’t allow for lots of flowers, greenery is also a great option!

Shopping without a cutoff point is like driving without a gas gauge—trust us on this. Plan to spend about 10 percent of your overall budget on your dress. But consider this number a starting point. If fashion is more important to you than, say, flowers or music, increase your dress spending and scale back in other places, says Mark Ingram, owner of , in New York City. Or, go easy on the gown and shell out for a great photographer or band if those are your top priorities.

Romantic Engagement Ring Trends

Marriage is an institution that has persisted since time immemorial, but as with anything else in life, marriage is not static. Ancient traditions aren’t as potent in modern marriages anymore. Couples are now trying out new ways to add some flair and personality to their big day: Vibrant, unexpected décor and eclectic wedding dresses are two forerunners in this evolution of wedding celebrations and now, engagement rings are part of the scene too.

There’s now a new crop of ring styles that can make both the couple stand out from the infinite other couples out there; written below are the most romantic engagement ring trends waltzing their way into modern weddings.
