Rules of Engagement: What to Plan First for Your Wedding

Bridal Show this Sunday at the Hyatt Regency… See Details Below!

Congratulations on getting engaged! There are tons of things you’ll need to do between now and “I Do.” To get you ready for the big day, we’ve compiled a list of five important things you should tackle first.

  1. Select a Date:
    Setting a date is the most important step you can take in planning a wedding. The availability of vendors and venues will of course hinge on the date you choose. So get out your calendar and find a day that works for you.
  2. Announce Your Engagement:
    Sharing the good news with friends and family is the next step to take. Make it a festive occasion by planning an engagement party or keep it simple by sending an email or calling friends directly.
  3. Take Engagement Photos:
    Engagement photos are a really big trend with brides and grooms today. Plus you’ll find tons of uses for these photos throughout your engagement. They’re great to use with save-the-dates, on your wedding Website and even on display at your wedding reception.

Another great way to start the wedding planing process is to attend a Bridal Show.

Mother’s Day Brunch

Today, I had a wonderful Mother’s Day Brunch at the Hyatt Regency Downtown.  It’s too bad that their next brunch isn’t scheduled until Thanksgiving because it was DELICIOUS!  From great service, friendly staff, MANY food options to choose from, and an elegant room to dine in, my family and I had such a great time.  We were even served Mimosas and got too choose from (I think) 15 different desserts (all buffet style).  What a fantastic way to get us out of the house!  Save the date for their next brunch…any questions call Linda Durand at (505) 842-1234.

ABQ the Mag

Yesterday, we participated in the Albuquerque the Magazine “A Wedding Showcase” bridal show held at the Hyatt Regency downtown.  The guests at the event received a complimentary apple sangria drink (alcoholic) and a delicious brunch.  The Hyatt did a phenomenal job providing great service to the guests by serving hand carved meats and a veggie bar, drinks, and tours of their venue.  Albuquerque the Magazine even gave away iPods every 15 minutes!  The local businesses participating in the event gave out generous gifts to all the attendees.  Hope you were able to join us…if not, there’s always next year (if you haven’t tied the knot yet)!

Bridal event this weekend

We had a great time visiting with all the brides at the Wedding Design bridal show yesterday being held at the Hotel Albuquerque.  The fashion show was fun and Special Moments Bridal Boutique always show such gorgeous gowns.  We handed out lots of FREE tickets into our February 22nd bridal show being held at the Hyatt Regency Downtown.

Be sure to check out the bridal show happening this weekend again at Hotel Albuquerque.  Visit The Wedding Gallery on Sunday, January 18th from 1:00-4:00pm.  They will be handing out fun bags to all the brides that include “bride” t-shirts and Sephora makeup.  You can pre-register online through their website.
