Pros and Cons of Hosting a Wedding Reception in Albuquerque


  • Great food
    New Mexico is rich in cultural and ethnic diversity, and its food scene reflects that. You’ll find inventive and traditional Native, Mexican and Spanish cuisine, as well as American Southwest staples.

  • Breathtaking sunsets
    With clear skies framed by the Sandia Mountains, Albuquerque’s sunset skies are bright and colorful. Sunset makes a stunning backdrop for photos or a romantic dinner and dancing.

  • Affordable options
    Compared to many mid-sized cities, amenities like food, lodging and entertainment are fairly affordable.


  • Wind and dust
    Located squarely in the desert, Albuquerque is very dry for most of the year and has little in the way of dust mitigation. Tents may be difficult to anchor and blowing dust can be a problem.

  • Unpredictable weather
    Because Albuquerque sits at almost a mile above sea level, winters, though sunny, are cold and blustery. Summer heat can be uncomfortable and the city is prone to flash flooding during the monsoon season in July and August.

  • Crime
    Pockets of Albuquerque have high rates of poverty and unemployment, which can lead to high crime rates in those areas. Theft, property, and drug crimes are fairly common.
