There are lots of decisions that couples have to make when they’re planning their wedding. There’s figuring out what foods they’re going to serve, what the centerpieces on the tables are going to look like, who’s going to be invited, how much money they’re going to spend, what the invitations are going to look like, and more. Weddings are exciting and they’re generally fun to plan, but they are most certainly a great deal of work. There’s a lot of preparation that goes into a wedding. In fact, a lot of people choose to hire wedding planners to take some of the work off their plate so they can focus on the things that are most important to them.
Now, one of the big decisions that couples have to make when they’re planning their wedding is which venue they’re going to hold it at and whether or not the wedding is going to take place indoor or outdoor. Obviously, in some parts of the country outdoor weddings are out of the question during certain portions of the year. Unless you absolutely love being frozen while you say your vows, you’re not going to hold an outdoor wedding in Buffalo in January. Likewise for Minnesota, North Dakota, Alaska, and any other portion of the state where temperatures during the winter often are in the teens. Thus, if you want to hold an outdoor wedding, you have to think about the weather at the time of year when you’re planning on having the wedding.
Colorado tends to be one of those states where a lot of people don’t even consider having an outdoor wedding. As the belief goes, Denver outdoor weddings are difficult to plan because the weather is so unpredictable. It is true that the weather can change pretty rapidly in Colorado, but what most people don’t realize is that the weather is actually quite nice for the vast majority of the year. Denver can see 50-degree days in January, and there are more than 300 days of sunshine for the year. Sure, spring snowstorms happen, but for the most part, the weather even in the spring is quite nice. It’s generally sunny, dry, and relatively warm, which means you don’t have to worry about the dates of your outdoor wedding as much as some people would have you believe. If you want to have an outdoor wedding in Colorado in April, you should just go ahead and plan it. Odds are the weather will be quite nice.
That said, weather is weather, and there’s always the chance that when you wake up on the day of your wedding, it will be snowing and freezing outside. There’s no way to predict what the weather is going to be months in advance, which is why in places like Colorado it’s good to pick a venue like The Chateaux at Fox Meadows that offers both indoor and outdoor wedding options. That way, if your outdoor wedding can’t happen because it’s snowing, you can still use your venue and your wedding will still go great.
