Wedding Planning Tips

Stunning scenery, abundant sunshine and an idyllic atmosphere are among a host of reasons couples choose to have a Colorado mountain wedding. But, with so many attractive locations and so many options available, choosing the perfect place to exchange vows can be a daunting task. There is, however, one Colorado mountain location that rises above the rest with all it has to offer.

Aspen Hotel - The Sky Hotel

Aspen Ambiance

Aspen has become the setting of choice for Colorado mountain weddings, and it’s no wonder why. The town has an uncommon blend of the historic Old West and modern-day sophistication, combining rustic with romantic, classy with conventional, enchanting with energetic. Aspen’s majestic mountains and intricate aspen groves provide a striking backdrop for one-of-a-kind wedding portraits. In addition, there are an endless variety of year-round activities and entertainment options for people of all ages. With its unique ambiance, spectacular scenery and first-class fun, Aspen simply has everything needed to make your Colorado mountain wedding an event to remember.

Aspen Hotels

If flair and convenience are both at the top of your priority list, you don’t need to sacrifice one for the other. There are fashionable Aspen hotels that have amenities suitable for hosting all your wedding events in one convenient setting. Securing a hotel for the ceremony, reception and lodging will reduce wedding day stress by eliminating the need to transport people, gifts and formal wear to various locations. While everyone will appreciate the convenience of having a room where the events are held, older guests as well as parents of young children will be grateful for a private place to retreat to when rest is required.

From the most elaborate celebrations to quiet, intimate gatherings, there are Aspen hotels that offer event planning, spa services and catering for weddings of all sizes. In addition, many Aspen hotels have staff on hand who are experienced in wedding planning and have connections to other vendors in the area such as pastry chefs, florists and photographers. Their expertise will ensure every detail is covered. You and your spouse-to-be will be able to spend the most important day of your life showering each other with attention, mingling with guests and creating a lifetime of memories without a worry in the world.

While some brides and grooms have their hearts set on an outdoor wedding, weather conditions can quickly change in the Colorado mountains. Rather than risk a ruined wedding due to inclement weather, you can combine the best of both worlds. Walls of windows with picturesque mountain views, a combination of an indoor and outdoor reception area, and an outdoor heated pool or hot tub are some hotel features that will allow you and your guests to comfortably enjoy Colorado’s great outdoors regardless of what surprises the weather has in store.

Aspen Activities

You and your future spouse will want to arrive a few days before the wedding to settle in. Many couples like to meet up with a few of their closest friends and family members during this time to relax, rejuvenate and take advantage of the many activities Aspen has to offer. If you are hosting a winter wedding, ski enthusiasts will appreciate having time to hit the slopes. Non-skiers might enjoy dog sledding or snowshoeing, and everyone is sure to enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride. Spring, summer and fall also offer an abundance of outdoor activities including golf, river rafting and gondola rides. For those who appreciate the indoors, Aspen offers year-round shopping, cultural and culinary experiences for people of all ages and interests. There’s truth in the saying that people “come to Aspen for the winter and stay for the summer.”

By choosing Aspen as the location for your Colorado mountain wedding, you simply can’t go wrong. Your special day will become the blissful, fairytale wedding you dreamed of, complete with precious memories that you and your loved ones will spend a lifetime cherishing.
