Planning an outdoor wedding in Colorado takes patience, attention to detail and plenty of communication. From choosing the perfect lighting to selecting floral centerpieces that accentuate the dining tables, every detail counts. Whether it’s unique cuisine, dramatic decor or a breathtaking venue, there are so many ways to make your wedding absolutely unforgettable.
1. Choosing the Right Wedding Entertainment
Consider the size, venue, and ambiance of your wedding when thinking about live entertainment. If you’re looking to really impress your guests, think beyond a DJ or live wedding band. There are all types of live entertainment for an adult crowd or a family-focused wedding, such as magicians, caricaturists, fire performers, singing waiters and more. Having not-so-common wedding entertainment is sure to be talked about by your guests for years to come.
Of course, a talented DJ or wedding band who can liven up the party is sure to make for an unforgettable wedding night just as well.
2. Personal Touches on Your Wedding Day
Personalized wedding vows are an excellent way to create a memorable ceremony. This is the time to express how you’re feeling and leave a lasting impact. Whether you choose short and funny wedding vows, emotional vows or something deeply personal, your words are sure to be remembered.
3. Open Bar + Signature Cocktails
While an open bar is always a crowd-pleaser, it can be a bit of a pocket burster for some couples. If it’s not in the budget, opt for a wine and beer only bar. By removing liquor as an option and keeping your bar open to just beer and wine, guests can still enjoy sipping on delicious, free drinks. A cash bar for liquor is also a popular option, allowing your friends and family to have cocktails without you having to foot the bill.
For couples who want to splurge on an open bar, signature drinks or a specialized menu is a fantastic way to make your wedding memorable.
4. Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue
The wedding venue is key when it comes to presenting the “wow” factor. With a state as beautiful as Colorado, there are plenty of locations to choose from. Look for places that can accommodate the number from your wedding guest list, see if the venue has ample room for guests to eat and drink, walk around and mingle, and, of course, dance. If your wedding is during the afternoon, keep an eye out for what the lighting is like. Lastly, how are the views? Your view is one of the biggest attractions at your outdoor wedding, so consider your options carefully.
