We’re all about giving you the tools to make your celebration your own. But, when it comes to these meaningful Colorado wedding trends, we can’t help but love them!
1. Eloping by Self-Solemnization
Perhaps the most intimate of all ceremony options, self-solemnization does not require an officiant or a witness. Colorado happens to be one of the easiest places to get married by self-solemnization.
To get married by self-solemnization in Colorado:
- Find your appropriate county clerk and acquire a marriage license.
- Complete your marriage certificate and return it within the required timeline.
2. Elopements + Micro-weddings
You’re not seeing double, this featured Colorado couple opted for three ceremonies in 2020: self-solemnization on a rock in Breckenridge, a micro-wedding in Estes Park, and another in the groom’s home-village of Reutlingen, Germany.
3. “Off-White” Bridal Attire
If you find it hard to break from the Victorian Tradition of wearing a white dress, consider a second look for your reception or bridal portraits.
When bridal muse and fashion icon, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, said “pearls are always appropriate”, she transformed a trend into fashion gospel. Though this go-to gem for “something borrowed” lost its popularity among older millennials for a moment, she’s back with a vengeance and we’re here for all of her timeless elegance!
5. Timeless Color Palettes
6. One with Nature
Rather mountains, plains, or sand dunes, keep Colorado wild and leave no trace. But, by all means, take advantage of the breathtaking backdrops offered up by Mother Nature.
7. Alternative Entertainment
What better way to support the arts and make your celebration one to remember than to incorporate local artists and creators?! Here are a few ideas:
8. Eco-Friendly Favors
Offer your guests favors that won’t end up in the landfill. Consider a donation to a charity or a custom experience like this bloom bar by Sugar Moon Mobile Bar + The Flower Corner.
9. Upscale catering
10. Multi-Destination Honeymoons
Your honeymoon may be one of the few opportunities for you and your partner to take an extended vacation. Make the most of it by visiting multiple locations! Travel advisors like Rose Travel in Parker can help you curate the perfect honeymoon!
11. Lifestyle-based Themes
Colorado is a lifestyle haven and offers numerous opportunities to incorporate your hobbies into your special day-especially for those who love the outdoors. We have some of the best ski-towns in the US, a number of lakes and rivers that you can take by sail and, of course unbeatable trails and campgrounds. The possibilities are endless!
