Destination: Colorado week is well underway and today is all about gorgeous inspiration! Earlier this week we shared helpful tips and tricks to help you navigate the logistics of the planning process with “Colorado Destination Wedding Goodies,” “Colorado Pros’ Advice for Saying ‘I Do’” and “Say ‘I Do’ in Colorado with SPG Weddings.” But today is all about the pretty – lovely real weddings, endless Pinterest inspo and real-life Colorado brides who were kind enough to share their advice. 

Pinterest Passion for Colorado 

Just like with our past Destination: X weeks, we’ve created a Pinterest board entirely dedicated to Colorado destination weddings! For handpicked ideas for your dress, photo ops, favors and much more, visit our Destination: Colorado board! We’ve also added some Colorado-esque pins to some of our other Pinterest boards including the Wedding Cakes, Ceremony Set Up, Reception Ideas and Florals & Bouquets boards. You most likely already have a Pinterest board in the works for your destination wedding, so hopefully this will be a fun and easy way to add some additional inspiration into your existing ideas!

Handpicked Colorado Real Weddings

We’ve featured dozens of Colorado real weddings over the years, but here are just a handful of our favorites!

Colorado Real Bride Advice

From said-featured real weddings, we’ve gone through and pulled some of the more helpful advice offered by the real-life brides. Hopefully some of these kind and insightful tips will get you pointed in the right direction for your Colorado destination wedding planning!

“We were concerned about our guests having altitude sickness, so we warned everyone repeatedly to hydrate and to take it easy on the first day. Everyone was feeling great for the wedding – just a little more winded than usual from dancing!”
~ Sari, Beaver Creek destination wedding bride, “Storybook Colorado Wedding.”

“We found that planning is all about using the resources at your disposal. Once you start, you find that the wedding community is very well connected. Our wedding planner was able to give us some great referrals.”

~ Tracey, Aspen destination wedding bride, “A Sweet Aspen Wedding.”

“Don’t stress! It all works out perfectly in the end. Nobody will remember all the small details that didn’t go as planned, but they will remember how much love and magic there was between the bride and groom. All you need is love!”

~Kimmy, Vail destination wedding bride, “Magical Mountaintop Wedding.”

In case you missed it, be sure to check out yesterday’s Destination: Colorado post of this gorgeous real wedding – “Serene Colorado Destination Wedding” – and stay tuned tomorrow for yet another beautiful real wedding!
