Santa Fe wedding trends inspire brides-to-be all over the world. Santa Fe is so well known for having weddings that they have wedding expos throughout the year for people to visit and get inspiration from. New Mexico’s natural surroundings and the culture give the perfect place for both wedding inspiration and destinations. Stay tuned throughout this article to see what wedding trends are hot and inspired from Santa Fe weddings.


Succulents are a popular plant to have in a lot of weddings, especially in Santa Fe. It is popular for Santa Fe brides to have succulents in their bouquets and use them as table decorations or centerpieces. It is also common for the bride to give away succulents as wedding favors.


The color red is a popular color in Santa Fe weddings. The color red is a very bright color, and it pops against the color white. There are many shades of red that are shown through different Santa Fe weddings including orange-red and yellow-red.

Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

Sometimes uniform bridesmaid dresses aren’t in favor of all bridesmaids. Santa Fe has a trend in mismatching the bridesmaids dresses. Usually, they would be the same color, just different styled dresses. This allows each bridesmaid to express themselves differently.

Display Your Culture

Santa Fe locals have pride in the culture. It is a common trend for couples to display and celebrate their culture through different aspects in their wedding. For example, if the couple practices a Christian religion, they could choose to show that somewhere throughout their wedding.

Sweetheart Table

A sweetheart table is a reception table set for the two newlyweds and it is located near tables with their families. In Santa Fe, it is a trend to have a sweetheart table instead of having the wedding party sit at a full table in front of everyone. This allows you to have an intimate dinner, just the two of you.

Flower Crowns

It is popular for Santa Fe brides to wear colorful flower crowns during their ceremony and through their reception. It is common for their flower crowns to be big and full of colors. It is also common to stick to one bold color for your flower crown, like dark green.
