Three C’s That Will Make You Want a Winter Wedding
While historically the most prominent seasons for weddings are spring and summer, snow-white weddings in the mountains have their own magic to them. When thinking up what makes a winter wonderland the perfect setting for your nuptials, convenience, customization, and comfort come to mind.
Convenience is just as important to your guests as it is you, and enticing your friends and family to attend your winter wedding in the mountains is easy when the venue doubles as a full-experience Colorado resort. Your guests will certainly find it convenient that your celebration mirrors an ideal mountain getaway during one of the most ‘wonderful times of the year.’ With award-winning Nordic skiing, sleigh rides, fat tire biking, and an ultra-pampering spa just steps from their resort room as well as world-class downhill skiing just a short shuttle away, your guests can enjoy their own ski vacation as well as share in your special day. While everyone is experiencing endless activities and pampering amenities, you will have time to take in each moment of your once-in-a-lifetime event without worrying about even the pickiest guest on your list.
Customization, because your day should be all about you. We all know how crazy it is trying to pick the perfect date, color palette, décor, menu, and more, but making your day unique is one thing you won’t have to worry about with a winter wedding. On top of not having to compete with other weddings in the same season, winter offers a wide array of novel and unexplored color palettes (not to mention floral choices), an abundance of seasonal flavors to build a unique menu, and to top it all off, insanely delicious and festive hot cocktails for you and your guests to revel in. There is no question that your wedding will be truly special when you have the ability to customize all aspects, top-to-bottom, with underutilized and exceptional options!
And finally, but not to be forgotten, the third C, Comfort! With winter comes warm cozy materials (velvets and flannels… so good), sitting by the fireplace, melty s’mores, mellow spa treatments, and watching the majesty of a winter wonderland from a warm snuggly indoor setting. The truth of the matter is that winter is a season that is completely geared toward indulgent comfort. That’s why here at the Ranch, you’ll find plenty of fireplaces, both inside and out, hot stone massages and full-body soaks at Ranch Creek Spa, an outdoor heated pool and hot tub, and our favorite cozy blankets for horse-drawn sleigh rides. The seasons beckons us to lose ourselves in comfort. Why not have your special day resonate comfort for you and your guests!
We’re always finding more reasons to appreciate the beauty of a winter wedding. Maybe you’ll start imagining yourself surrounded by snowcapped mountains by day and curled up by a cozy fire at night on your special event!
