Plan Early

If you want to have the best options, at the best prices, then you really need give yourself plenty of time to research and meet with vendors.

Also, make sure to plan some activities that allow guests to get into the spirit of your fall wedding.

Plan B

Some of the most gorgeous days in our state occur from September to early November. Occasionally a few cold and rainy will sneak in. Because of this, make sure to have a back-up plan. This is even more important if you’re having an outdoor wedding or reception – especially in the mountains during the fall.

Who wouldn’t want to say “I do” with a backdrop of beautiful orange and red leaves? Just in case your day comes with wind and rain, make sure to have an outdoor tent or an indoor space to keep everyone happy and dry during an emergency weather crisis!
