A free wedding planning seminar, followed by a bridal show with tickets half price in advance.

If you’re getting hitched and looking for some wedding planning tips, a free Wedding Trends Seminar on Sunday October 23 might be just what you need to help you up the aisle. The 60-minute seminar promises to offer insider secrets to maximize your wedding budget by members of New Mexico Wedding Professionals, plus news on 2012 wedding trends, and tips on planning the perfect wedding. (In my humble opinion, a perfect wedding is one where the bride and groom love each other to bits, no matter how fancy the frock and the favors. Anything else is just icing on the wedding cake!)

They request registrations in advance for the free wedding planning seminar, which starts at 11:30 am at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Spa.

The seminar is followed by the Great Diamond Dash Bridal Show from 1 – 4 pm. Tickets for the bridal show are $10 on the door, but save by buying tickets online in advance for $5. The Great Diamond Dash Bridal Show includes a bridal fashion show, the chance to talk with Albuquerque wedding professionals, door prizes, and apparently five brides-to-be will dig into a wedding cake to find free diamond jewelry.

Wedding Trends Seminar: Insider Secrets to Maximize Your Budget takes place:

  • When: Sunday October 23, 2011
  • Time: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm.  Followed by the Great Diamond Dash Bridal Show from 1 – 4 pm .
  • Where: Embassy Suites Hotel & Spa
  • Admission: The seminar is free (register in advance) and the bridal show is $5 in advance, $10 on the door.

Albuquerque Embassy Suites Hotel & Spa is located at 1000 Woodward Place NE.  (Off Lomas, 2 blocks west of I-25.)

Save 58% on nails, hair or facials if you buy a certificate today valid for a year, plus ongoing 15% off deals for seniors, $10 haircut package with color services, and freebies for brides.

Here’s a lovely bunch of ways to save dollars at Blvd. Day Spa & Salon on Candelaria, whether you’re looking to lovely up your nails, hair, or face!

First up, a Groupon deal that gets you $60 worth of salon services for just $25 – choose from hair, nails (manicure/pedicure) or facials. That’s a saving of $35 or approximately 58% on the value of the certificate. You must snag this offer before the deal closes at midnight tonight (Wednesday April 7, 2010) but then you’ve got a year to use the certificate before it expires. (Twenty people must buy this Groupon deal for it to take effect. If they don’t get enough takers, you’re not charged a cent.)

If that doesn’t light your candle, then ongoing (for now) Blvd. Day Spa & Salon specials  include:

  • 15% off ALL services for seniors from Tuesday to Friday, between 9 and 11 am.
  • A $10 haircut when you also book hair color services. A haircut alone starts at $35, so that’s a $25 saving.
  • Crown highlights special for $35
  • Brides receive a free updo with five or more bridesmaid or bridal party hairdos (starting at $40 per princess)

FYI– for the Groupon deal, I’ve linked you to the Groupon kick-back page. Translation: If you buy a Groupon after clicking on the link, and it’s the first time you’ve bought a Groupon, I’ll receive a small credit toward a future Groupon.  I tell you this because a) This site’s rules require it. and  b) The FTC requires it. If you feel like sending a little love this way, use the link. Otherwise, just go to Groupon.com.

For the other offers, you’re taken direct to Blvd. Day Spa & Salon’s website, so you can take your pick!
