Wonderful and budget friendly
We had our wedding in the courtyard and the reception in the pottery room. It was perfect! The pottery room is separated from the rest of the cultural center. There are stairs and elevators to get to it., and a private balcony where you can see the Sandias. There is also a bathroom located right there that is just for you and your guests. Everyone had a wonderful time and the set up was amazing. We had such good service! Everyone I know said “make sure You save a plate so you can eat at some point during your wedding.” We didn’t have to worry about that because the staff made sure we tried all the food and always had drinks. They even helped us play our own music through the sound system and worked as a DJ for a part of the night. Food was amazing and the chef worked with us so we got exactly what we wanted! It’s hard to find places where the food and venue are all one price, but this place had wonderful packages. I can’t recommend this place enough.Sent on 05/01/2019

I can't believe more people don't know about this place! The food and venue are so cheap! Not only that the outside courtyard is amazingly beautiful! Everyone should check this place out, it's completely worth it!Sent on 07/15/2015
$500 for the venue
As low as $20 a plate!
Along with all the nice things I had to say there are some bad.. Though you think IPCC has your plans set in stone, and you have checked multiple times with them to make sure things are going well, be prepared for things the week of to change. Because we got married Balloon Fiesta weekend they had to change a few plans around that I thought would ruin everything.. We got everything figured out in the end and it was beautiful but there is almost no communication between the coordinators and they forget about functions they have had previously scheduled.

I have had the pleasure of Officiating at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center several times, and each time the staff has been professional, supportive, and all-around extremely coordinated in their set-up for the ceremony and reception/dance afterwards. It is uniquely New Mexican site with the culture and history surrounding your guests.
