Las Cruces bridal event FAQs

What time is the best time to get there? The entrance doesn't open until noon, but you won't miss out getting there later! There are so many vendors with so many samples and prizes, you won't be disappointed even if you get there at 3 p.m. Our show's from 12 - 4 p.m. at Hotel Encanto, at 705 S Telshor Blvd. in Las Cruces.

How much is it to get in? It's free if you register. So bring the whole gang and make a fun day of it!

Do groom's pay? No! Bring anyone you like in with you for free.

Will I get freebies?  You bet! Most exhibitors have things they're given out or prizes that you can register to win as well as discounts for those attending the Expo. So you'll have lots of chances to win prizes and even more to get discounts to the best wedding pros in the area. 

What about vendors bugging me after the Expo? We give out your name and info to the wedding vendors so they can follow up with you afterward. Some do, most don’t. You'll likely get some phone calls and emails, but you can opt out of those if you don't need the service. Also, if for some reason you weren't able to come, the emails and phone calls will be helpful to get you some offers you would have missed out on. But please let us know if you have any questions about who is contacting you and how frequently. 


Where do we go? See the map for directions you can download.

Is there anything else going on during the day? We'll have expert with tips for getting married, two fashion shows (at 1:30 & 3:30 p.m.), drawings, games, music and fun - oh, and then there's the Expo.

Who should I bring with me? Anyone who's helping you make decisions or whose opinion you want.

What are the times? 12 - 4 p.m.

Can I make arrangements to attend even if I have a disability? No problem at all! But to best help, please let us know 14 days in advance of the show so we can best serve you and your request through the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Is there anything for my fiancé to do while we're there? Bring him along and he can hang out with you or wander around the hotel & come back so you can show him what you’re thinking about when you've had a chance to go through it all on your own. But he’s welcome to come and he’ll have fun too.

How should I dress? Come as you like - there's a lot to see and do so be comfortable. You'll see people dressed from dressy to casual - whatever works for you and your style. Our one suggestion is to wear shoes that won't hurt you from walking around and checking out what all the pros are offering. 

Are kids allowed? Yes, but we don't allow strollers. But bring the kids, it's a family event just like your wedding!

What about same-sex couples? We include everyone! So come to the party!
