NØT Your Mother's Bridal Show

Your Wedding Is Different and

So Is Your Bridal Show

If traditional bridal shows make you want to run screaming in the opposite direction.

If your idea of a perfect white wedding features Billy Idol, and if black wedding dresses make your heart go pitter-pat, then this is the bridal show for you.


Not Your Mother’s Bridal Show is a carefully curated selection of leading-edge and inventive

non-traditional wedding services, themes, decor ideas, and goods will be presented for the perusal of New Mexico’s original and diverse couples.  A live DJ, cash bar, lounge areas, a fashion show, and unique local vendors are a few of the highlights that make this the most stay-worthy bridal event for hip and alternative couples in the Southwest.  From woodland fairy to rockabilly to goth, underwater, beachy, Cosplay and beyond, a couple’s vision for the beginning of their life together is as individual as fingerprints, and all are celebrated and supported in this one-of-a-kind bridal event.

Every bridal show should be hosted by Drag Queens! The entertainment and vendors at this event were definitely a refreshing and much needed take on bridal events.  Enjoyed it thoroughly! Thank you for all your hard work and coordination Laura! Y'all really hustled the marketing.

Best Damn Bridal Show Ever! Fantastic array of vendors. Trendy, fashionable, slightly askew, all approachable to all genre of couples.  The fashion shows rocked to their own accord, yet able to provide an appeal to all. Quality musical guests. Background music kept everyone entertained, appealing to all the generational gaps. Plenty of raffles with worthy prizes. Laura, Eliot and Not Your Mother's Bridal Show! Job extremely well done! Thanks for including us in your show.

Your event was very well organized, and the turnout was really good.  The alternative crowd was refreshing for us and it was certainly a fun experience.  We will definitely do another event with you.

There are many couples that don't even know that this type of bridal show is available to them.  There's a huge opportunity here for the clients and vendors, and I'm so glad to see that you and Eliot have explored this untapped resource. You provide engaged couples with access to vendors that they would normally not be aware of. We love you guys!
