I am looking to possibly have my wedding in Angel Fire or Taos, New Year's Eve, I've never been to either of these places but heard they are beautiful. Any one have any suggestions of good places for this?

Thank you!

If I can offer this, yes both places are beautiful, but you're going to be spending an inordinate amount of money. From the viewpoint of the safety of your guests: this is an incredibly mountainous area and totally unsafe for anyone not used to driving in the mountains.

So you are saying we shouldn't go because it's dangerous to get there?

Smile It is a beautiful area

I do not know the scale or grandeur of your wedding plans, but Angel Fire is a rather small community without really many fancy facilities. The AF Resort Hotel does have several conference rooms. There is a really nice non-denominational chuch with great views of the valley. Taos is a much larger town, but, you can expect to pay alot. If it was me, I would pick Angel Fire.
And they really take good care of the roads, removing snow to get the skiers in...it is their livlihood! No problem driving there 99% of the time in the winter.

Doceyes is right. In the winter that area can be dangerous for driving for anyone not used to driving in it. You wouldnt want anyone hurt. I would choose Ruidoso since it isnt that bad in the winter and has mountains and beautiful trees and such and you can fly in to say El Paso and drive up or Las Cruces or even Alamogordo. Another beautiful mountain city is Durango, Colorado near New Mexico. There is an airport there and lots of hotels and motels. Congrats on your upcoming wedding and good luck to you both!

You can google Pagosa Colorado and also Pagosa Hot Springs for more info.

Taos has a special magic at the Xmas holiday! The town is beautifully lit with farolitos and is wonderful! Don't worry about the travel... it's a ski area and there is ample shuttle service for those afraid to drive.

You can find any number of B&B's that have facilites for a wedding or even consider the ski valley. The Taos Inn would be a nice place to stay too.

I have lived here for close to 18 years and know a fw people, myself included, who got amrried here at that time of year. There is nothing else like it in the US!
