Colorado is a beautiful state. Those of us who live here already know this, and we are so lucky to live here.

Destination weddings are increasing in popularity, with 86% of couples considering a destination wedding, while only 16% actually have one (Fairchild Bridal Group, 2005; Forrest, 2006)

Couples choose to have a destination wedding for a number of reasons. They tend to be intimate affairs with only the closet of friends and family members in attendance, as associated travel costs can be quite high.

But what if you don’t live here and you’re planning a destination wedding here? What are your first steps?

Here are a few things to consider:

1) What time of the year do you want to get married?

2) How many guests are you planning on inviting?

3) Are you versed in the specific marriage license requirements?

4) What types of activities can be arranged for your guests?

5) And most importantly, what is your budget?

I am partial, but I always recommend hiring a wedding consultant to help you plan your destination wedding. We have local resources and networks that you have full access to! We can assist you in hiring the right people for your event and help you coordinate your beautiful wedding from afar!

Best wishes,
