Wedding season is fast approaching! And nothing says romance like a Colorado mountain wedding at Winter Park Mountain Lodge. Enjoy a carefree wedding overlooking Winter Park Resort and the majestic Colorado Rockies. And everything we have to offer is just a stone’s throw away from Winter Park Resort — Colorado’s favorite place to play outdoors any time of the year.
If you’re planning on having a scenic outdoor ceremony, keep in mind these helpful tips to guide your planning.
Be Prepared. The Emergency Kit.
Mountain weddings are usually a little bit removed from services and stores that we rely on in the city. The emergency kit should be stocked with everything from bandaids to superglue. Talk to your wedding planner about what she has in hers – there are always great stories behind some of the more unusual items in the kit.
Consider the elements when buying your dress.
If you are planning to get married outside consider what the ground will do to your train. If you are getting married on grass, consider a shoe with a wedge heel (or cowboy boots – what can I say – they are functional) and always have a wrap or coat that compliments your dress. It gets chilly when the sun goes down!
Outdoor Mountain Ceremonies
There are 3 must haves for Colorado Mountain outdoor ceremonies. Have water available for your guests. Have sunscreen available for your guests (even 30 minutes at 9,000 can do a number on you!) and consider offering the ladies parasols (there are several options for renting). If it’s early season, have bug spray available (mosquitos can be quite persistent early season).
