There’s something very special about mountain weddings! According to The Knot, November to March is a popular time of year for couples to schedule their weddings, with the hope of experiencing a snowy wonderland. While no one can control the weather, especially in the Rocky Mountains, there are advantages that both seasons provide. Let’s delve a little deeper into how to decide if a summer mountain wedding or a celebration in a winter wonderland is right for you.
In addition to the beautiful landscapes and scenery that create Steamboat’s backdrop, there are a number of advantages that come with planning a winter wedding in the mountains. Of course, this will be the high season so it’s important to begin your planning early. If you want your wedding to stand out, having it in the winter will help. Avoiding the summer wedding season and hosting your wedding in a charming mountain town will definitely accomplish this desire.
A summer mountain wedding is a special occasion. Choosing a mountain locale for your destination wedding will ensure that your event will be one to remember! Unlike other areas of the country, a summer mountain wedding is unique. The town’s a bit calmer than in winter, more vendors are available, and your planning could benefit from the greater flexibility that’s available. There’s just something about the Rockies in the summertime. Wildflowers are in bloom, towns are a bit quieter, and the sun shines deep into the evening.
Which Is Right for You?
Choosing a wedding venue and destination is a very personal decision. If you want to begin your marriage in a snowy paradise, winter is the perfect choice. Summer weddings in the mountains are also spectacular. Couples who are trying to keep their budgets in check while hosting a fabulous event will likely prefer the summer pricing. Skiers and outdoor enthusiasts will love a trip to the mountains in season, and anyone who wants to benefit from a less hectic environment will love the tranquility of summer. There’s really no wrong choice!
