PWG Elite Awards: Vote Now!

While it’s true that we, the Perfect Wedding Guide team, do have some authority when it comes to showcasing Albuquerque + Santa Fe’s local wedding professionals, we fully admit to not knowing everything. To stay humble, each year we reach out to hundreds of local engaged — or recently married couples — to get the full scoop on what it’s like to work with vendors like Matt Blasing Photography, Amor Ceremonies, or Prairie Star.

{Because, if we could get to see these professionals in action by having a wedding every weekend, we totally would. Unfortunately, half our team is already married.}

Then we take all this incredible info from real couples, and we bestow the Perfect Wedding Guide Elite Awards to the hardest working, kindest, and most deserving wedding vendors! And guess what?

Voting for 2018 is open NOW!

Here’s your chance to, with a few clicks, pass on all you learned while planning your own wedding, to other engaged couples! Your vote is essentially your recommendation to all the amazing love-birds of Albuquerque + Santa Fe. So if you really vibed with or were impressed by a wedding professional who worked to make your day special, here’s a super simple way to pass back some of the love they showed you!

{Not married yet? That’s alright too — feel free to vote for any vendors who have made your planning process a little more enjoyable, because that’s just as important too.}

You can vote for your favorite business owners HERE

Then, keep an eye peeled for the winners who will be announced later this year, and see if your fave team made the cut!

Oh yeah, and those amazing vendors we mentioned at the beginning of this post? {Matt Blasing Photography, Amor Ceremonies, and Prairie Star} They’re just a few of last year’s venerable winners. You can check out the rest of 2017’s PWG Elite Award Winners here, and follow the links included to book them for your wedding, too!

Bride wars: What not to do in front of other brides-to-be

706b33b1-5988-4260-aa12-224338210527Wedding planning can be stressful, particularly if the bride-to-be isn’t just thinking about her own nuptials, but also serving as a bridesmaid in other ceremonies around the same time. Not to mention, many happy grooms- and brides-to-be have their summer and fall weekends booked with weddings of other family members and friends. As a bride, it is important to establish when the right time to shine is, and when it isn’t. According to The Huffington Post, there are a number of bride-to-be do’s and don’ts.

One of the rudest things one bride can do to a fellow bride is to book or buy something the other bride wants, but cannot afford. If a friend loves a certain venue or wedding dress and it doesn’t fit into their budget, her bride-pal shouldn’t go for it either, according to the news source.

Constantly comparing weddings is another faux pas. No two couples have the same budgets with the exact same style, so there isn’t any reason to sit and compare constantly. Brides-to-be – whether they are in the weddings of friends or not – should just be there for fellow brides when needed, especially since they will want the same treatment.
