Wedding Planning

Where to start? Planning your dream wedding.

Congratulations! You are engaged. Being newly engaged is one of the most exciting times of your life. You are about to embark on a wonderful journey with the love of your life. After the initial elation, you start to imagine your special day and all of the details that go with it. Where will you have your wedding? How many people should you invite? Where will everyone stay? Should you hire a band or a DJ? What activities and events should you arrange for your guests? How will everyone get here? The endless list of questions quickly start to build up in your mind, and you might start to feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the tasks that lie ahead. We encourage you to stick with those feelings of love and excitement, and let our local Telluride professionals take care of the details.

Your wedding should reflect your personal style as a couple.

We understand that every couple is different, and each wedding is completely unique to the couple’s style and preferences. You may have always imaged your wedding being a small and intimate affair including only your closest family and friends.

Options For Your Wedding Ceremony & Reception

Choosing the perfect wedding venue for your ceremony and reception is probably the most important decision you will make for your big day. Well, aside from the ring and the dress of course! This is not an easy decision, and will likely take time and work finding the option that is perfect for you as a couple. If you are a traditionalist, you may opt for a church ceremony followed by a reception in a private home, hotel, or venue. Or maybe you want your guests to experience the majestic beauty of Telluride, and opt for a mountaintop ceremony followed by an intimate gathering at a local restaurant. Either way, your choice will set the tone for your event, and you want your decision to express your style as a couple. When you send your ‘save-the-date’ or official wedding invitation, you will be giving your guests a sneak peak of what to expect on your wedding day.

Below are a few ideas to get you thinking about your wedding ceremony and reception options:

  • Weddings in Churches
  • Weddings at Major Resort Hotels
  • Weddings in Private Homes
  • Weddings on Mountain tops
