Top 7 Advantages to A Mountain Wedding

There are many advantages when it comes to planning a mountain wedding. Specifically planning a wedding here in Red River, New Mexico. Our little town brings couples from many different places because of the beauty and different locations to tie the knot. If you’re thinking about having a mountain wedding, here are a few advantages you should know about planning a mountain wedding.

Unforgettable Experience

You are bound to have an unforgettable experience when getting married in the mountains. Use this opportunity to make memories with your friends and family. If you decide to elope, then this experience with your significant other will make the best memories with some great stories.

Weekend Getaway

A great reason to have a mountain wedding is the weekend vacation you can make out of it. For example, you can rent a property that is on the river so you have easy access to fishing. You can also rent one of our homes that has a hot tub so you can relax before or after you said, “I do.”

Great Photo Opportunities

Think of the amazing photos you can capture on your wedding day in the mountains. Having photos from your big day here in Red River will always bring back good memories. No matter where your ceremony is going to take place, you will get the mountain as the backdrop. If you’re lucky, you may even capture a few wildlife friends in your wedding photos too. Getting married in the mountains is never a bad idea and it will be a day you will surely never forget.

Smaller Guest List

When planning a destination wedding, it is most likely that your guest list won’t be as big as it would be if you were getting married closer to home. This can be a good thing, as it makes sure you are inviting your closest friends for a more intimate setting. Having fewer people attend your mountain wedding can also help you rent a bigger property to accommodate everyone.

Cost Effective

When planning a mountain wedding it is possible that it won’t cost as much as you think. There are different packages that KWK Events offers for those who are tying the knot here in Red River. Set up a budget that is within your price range so when you meet with Karen she can help find vendors in your budget. You can select packages ranging from elopement to a wedding as big as you wish. Depending on what is decided for food, property accommodations, and venue selection, you can still come out saving money.


When it comes to a mountain wedding, sometimes the more simple it is, the better. There isn’t much more you need than the view of the mountains. Depending on the wedding size, there is a possibility that everything can take place at one location. For example, the Double Dog Inn can accommodate up to 23 guests and host not only the ceremony but also the rehearsal dinner and the reception as well.

Supporting Local Businesses

Another advantage of getting married in the mountains, especially here in Red River, is the support you can give to our local businesses. Whether it be for catering, housing accommodations, or the use of our very own wedding planner, Karen Kelly, your support will go a long way.

Plan your mountain wedding in Red River and stay for your honeymoon. Our little mountain town is becoming a hot spot for weddings and we would love to see you here!
