Estes Park Fall Wedding Guide

Before you walk down the aisle and exchange “I do’s,” there are some things you need to know about planning a fall wedding in Estes Park. These tips will help you have the wedding ceremony of your dreams in Estes Park. 

  1. Don’t Count on Good Weather: As you probably already know, the Colorado weather can change at the drop of a hat. As such, you should prepare for unideal weather conditions for your wedding. Luckily, one of our wedding venues, The Homestead, has a roof, ensuring rain won’t be an issue for your wedding. 
  2. Blankets Are a Small Gift Guests Will Appreciate: This tip ties into the previous tip about weather perfectly; consider providing your guests with blankets. Blankets will help your guests stay warm and comfortable regardless of the weather. Plus, they make a nice take-home gift; they’ll think of your unforgettable wedding in Estes Park every time they cover up with it.
  3. Get Into the Fall Spirit: You’re having a wedding in the fall; embrace that by getting into the fall spirit. Consider serving fall favorites, like cider, hot chocolate, pumpkin pie, and apple tarts. Beyond your food and beverages, you can enfold the spirit of fall into your wedding with your centerpieces and decorations. Leaves, pumpkins, and other fun fall symbols can help give your wedding the fall feeling for which you’re aiming. Get creative; there are plenty of ways you can tailor your wedding for fall.
  4. A luxurious Estes Park wedding venue from Black Canyon InnTry a Rustic Theme: Fall in the Rockies is the perfect time for a rustic-themed wedding. A rustic wedding theme pairs well with the centerpiece ideas mentioned previously. The Boulders at Black Canyon Inn provides rustic elegance to your wedding, making it the perfect wedding venue for incorporating a rustic theme.
