If you're considering a winter wedding in Colorado, here are a few tips to help you craft the perfect event.

With technology and social media more popular than ever, brides and wedding planners can share ideas and information with the touch of button. From creating custom hashtags for your big day, to sharing your table setting ideas in a Pinterest board, it’s easier than ever to bring a bride and groom’s wedding visions to life.

Wedding Insurance
Yes, we said it- you should purchase wedding insurance. As we mentioned earlier, winter weddings require a great deal of coordination with mother nature, and in the event that weather circumstances prevent the bride or groom from reaching the church on time, you’re protected. Other items covered include stolen or damaged dresses, venue disasters and more.

Layers for Your Guests
For the perfect winter wedding, make sure your guests are aware of the expected temperature and how often they will be outside. If cold weather is a concern, purchase inexpensive pashminas and scarves and have them available
