Pick a venue that suits your winter wedding style!
Choose a Colorado wedding venue that you love! From rustic barns to a modern art gallery, you can take your pick from the best that Colorado has to offer! Lower Lake Ranch (pictured above) is located in Pine, Colorado.
The beautiful grounds of this property provide a picturesque location for an outdoor ceremony, while two incredible indoor pavilions will shelter your guests from the winter chill during the reception. Up to 40 guests can stay at the estate’s bed and breakfast to take in the local scenery. Outdoor activities including fly fishing, hiking, skiing, ice fishing, ice skating, horseback riding and much more.
Show your guests the best sights of Colorado!
Give your guests some travel ideas to keep in mind when booking their trip to your wedding. Visit the Colorado Tourism’s website to see what is happening in town surrounding your wedding date.
Add these events, concerts, attractions, and vacation ideas to your wedding website for your guests to browse. Send them on day trips to visit historical Colorado attractions, like one of the many railroad tours available. Colorado is home to some of the best skiing and snowboarding resorts in the nation, so be sure to recommend your favorite spot!
Add that winter warmth in your décor!
Wear a fur/faux fur shawl or coat for pictures (and of course to keep yourself nice and toasty!) or in your decor. Bring in lots of candles to create that intimate winter glow. Embrace your natural surroundings by using bare branches in your tablescapes.
Instead of shipping in flowers that you would see at a summer or spring wedding, use flowers that only bloom in the winter. For more fun ideas for your winter wedding, see our previous blog post on how to Make the Most of a Winter Wedding.
