Legacy Media also puts on bridal shows throughout the year and produces the award-winning Around 505 magazine.
We launched NM Wedding Expo in 2009 to link brides with wedding professionals able to offer expert advice in a face-to-face environment. The Expos are continuing to make it easier for brides to look at scores of options in a single afternoon. No doubt, the Internet can make you an educated consumer. But nothing replaces the using all your senses, in a one-stop shopping experience of a great bridal fair.
When it comes to shopping, BIGGER IS BETTER and more options mean you're sure you're getting the best you can. Since our Expos are the largest in the state, that means you see more dresses, more venues, more photographers and more price ranges. But our events are never too large to keep you from finding what you want. That’s the beauty of face-to-face personal interaction.
With backgrounds in reporting and editing for newspapers and magazines, we started our media / events company in 1994. Our introduction into the wedding industry came in 2005 when we began publishing the Wedding Guide of New Mexico.
The bridal fair bug bit us in 2008, when a radio group asked us to help with its annual wedding show in January. The feedback from both brides and wedding businesses was exciting – and immediate.
Since we took over the show that following January, the event has more than quadrupled in size; and that addictive feedback led us to add a Santa Fe show in 2011 and a second Albuquerque show in 2012.
We still publish the Wedding Guide because it’s a helpful starting point for brides. Take advantage of those included lists to get organized months ahead of your big day. How far ahead should you choose your gown? The answer in the Wedding Guide might surprise you.
So, mark your calendar and come see us at our Expos to start narrowing down your choices.
In the meantime, feel free to call or email us with any questions, requests for advice or just to chat. After all, a media company, and especially its owners, should specialize in communicating.
