5 New Mexico Vendors for a Fabulously Unique Wedding

Here at Perfect Wedding Guide, we have copious amounts of wedding vendors that offer so many different services to our local brides and grooms– it’s pretty awesome. Between perusing through lists of popular wedding “musts” like florists and photographers and trying to mentally prepare for the event, vendors that offer unique services might seem like they’re nowhere to be found. We’re here to tell you that there are actually plenty of these little gems, and they’re not hiding at all!

In fact, they’re pretty much all over our state and they are ready to work with locals like you who want to make a lasting impression for your friends and family. Let’s not forget how important it is to find vendors that want to make your wedding uniquely yours so that it stands out against all of the other weddings out there, and these vendors are sure to make your experience one for the books!

Whether you are looking for an artist to create hand-made invitations or an exciting way to entertain your wedding party that also incorporates the sights and sounds of your city, we’ve got just the vendor for you. After some dedicated social media account stalking and conversations with these wedding professionals, we think that they are some of the most innovative and creative in the state!

Here are 5 super unique wedding services here in New Mexico:

1. Darling Clementine

We could come up with a thousand words to describe anything and everything wedding related, but my goodness! These handcrafted announcements from Darling Clementine leave us speechless. Owner and artist, Bella Robles, specializes in custom watercolor illustrations, handwritten + calligraphy signage, as well as books and stationary sets that have an adorable personal touch. We can’t think of a better way to bring your personality to life on paper through the eyes of a local artist. You can learn more about these lovable little treasures here.

2. My Beloved Vintage Rentals

We know that every couple is looking for a very particular style and taste when it comes to décor, and we also know that every couple wants to make sure that their guests feel comfortable and at home during their wedding day. Why not combine style and comfort by choosing a vendor who is basically an expert in both? My Beloved Vintage Rentals offers the most incredible vintage furniture and décor that is completely unique and curated to fit your wedding. To learn more about them, you can visit the site here.

3. Bombshell Fitness

We love the idea of a good party, and we like to think we know how to throw some pretty awesome ones for our vendors and local wedding community– but when it comes to showers & wedding parties, we’ll leave that to the experts. What is more fun than your classic bachelorette party? A bachelorette party where you get to be sassy and put on costumes and performances! Get together your gal pals, or your guy pals, and plan a party with Bombshell Fitness filled with special pole dance training, dance routines, and games that will leave everyone talking about the fun for years to come. You can get in contact with them here.

As New Mexican’s, we know a lot about balloons. You know, the ones that start popping up in the sky during crisp October mornings. When it comes to party balloons, that is a whole other story. Luckily, we have Urban Balloons by Dawn to provide expertise and awe-inspiring balloon arrangements for our local wedding community. With options for every kind of event and any style, you’re sure to find something that has YOU written all over it! If you’re looking to add some extra fun to your wedding, or maybe even to replace floral arrangements with something unique, you can reach out to Urban Balloons here.

5. Tour ABQ

We love our state, and we also love our basecamp in the city of Albuquerque. There is so much to see and explore, especially in the heart of downtown. If you love to explore Albuquerque as much as we do, then you will love what Tour ABQ has to offer! Enjoy your friends and family on a trolley that can fit up to 34 guests, or make it more intimate and take a ride on the Duke City Pedaler. Everyone will have an awesome time and will get to experience the city in their own way! So what are you waiting for? Check them out here.

Announcing the 2019 PWG Elite Award Winners!

Sadly, the evening of our 2019 Vendor Appreciation Party has come and gone and we are left with remnants of glitter on our faces as we sit here thinking about the fun that we had hoped would never end. The evening was filled with the most wonderful surprises around every corner, from ocean water blue cocktails to seafood themed hors d’oeuvres and goodies! All of the sea creatures seemed to be enjoying all of the attention and excitement, too.

The night would not have been possible if it weren’t for our amazing venue, the ABQ BioPark Aquarium and the mouth-watering goodness provided by Taste Catering. We are so grateful to have such incredible sponsors for the event that provided the most stunning “under the sea” themed elements that simply brought the party to life, starting with our invitations by Funky Olive that made a splash! We adored the creative centerpieces by The Flower Co. and the beach-y tunes provided by King Mobile Music and Rockin’ Piano Party. We can’t forget to mention those phenomenal cakes from Honey & Salt Cake Co. because we all know we were dying to taste when we saw them placed on display.

These local wedding professionals, from wedding coordinators to wedding travel agencies, show exemplary performance in helping local brides and grooms make their wedding day dreams come true. Since we think that all of our vendors are shining stars every day, we ask locals to vote for their favorites to help make the process easier and more exciting. Now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, and the moment we can’t wait to share with all of you, the winners of the PWG 2019 Elite Awards!

My Beloved Vintage Rentals: Local Spotlight

Something about this fine start to a brand new year has us feeling like the right thing to do, right now, is just to indulge in the beauty around us. We’re lucky enough to be on the forefront of weddings, styled shoots, vendor collaborations, and so much more. We’re even luckier to be doing what we love to do, here in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, because both communities are rich in creative people with unique aesthetics, who aren’t afraid of pushing boundaries.

Which is how we landed on highlighting My Beloved Vintage Rentals, on this crisp winter morning. Founded on the principle that beauty is everything, the woman-owned decor team provides their couples and clients with so much more than just your average stock of chair covers.

With meticulously chosen vintage furniture and textiles, classic wooden yard games for the child’s spirit within all of us, and handcrafted, lovingly built tables of all shapes and sizes, My Beloved Vintage Rentals does big details in a big way.  Not to mention their take on the circular arch backdrop — the trend that everyone and their mother has been swooning over this season — that supports crawling, sprawling florals and fanciful greenery.

But, with all the love that’s poured into the big details, the little details get twice as much. Because crafting a memorable, special moment to match your love story is actually what My Beloved Vintage Rentals does best. It’s no wonder their team has been popping up in just about every jaw-dropping styled shoot and wedding in New Mexico!

To book My Beloved Vintage Rentals, and ensure your wedding celebration is fine-tuned into your unique love story and personality, you can contact their team here.
