Pros and Cons of a Mountain Wedding

Mountain Weddings and Elopements have always been a popular option for those dreaming of getting married surrounded by epic peaks and pines. When planning their dream wedding, many couples wisely choose a mountain wedding for their perfect destination experience. Whether it be summer, winter, or any season in between, a Colorado wedding can be an ideal option. However, when selecting a mountain wedding venue, it’s essential to research and make sure the location and venue you choose are suited for your needs. Bella Vista Estate is here to help you explore the pros and cons of having a mountain wedding and assist you in making the proper selection. 

Mountain Wedding Venue Positives

The awe-inspiring majesty of the Colorado mountains makes for the perfect unforgettable backdrop. The scenery requires minimal decor, natural lighting will make for stunning photos, and nature adds that touch of authenticity. Not only does a destination mountain wedding offer a weekend experience for everyone to enjoy, but mountain weddings offer more privacy and can be budget-friendly, given guest counts are usually lower.

The simplicity of having a mountain wedding allows for intimacy, lets everyone relax and get away from their busy lives. Mountain weddings also offer numerous options for fun activities before and after your big day, which will delight your guests and leave them with unforgettable memories.  The biggest reason that couples choose mountain destinations is to share their lifestyle with their loved ones.

Mountain Wedding Venue Negatives

There are a couple of thoughts to keep in mind when planning a mountain wedding that every couple should consider. First, while the Bella Vista Estate in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, offers unforgettable views and is an extraordinary experience, mountain destinations are a bit remote and require more travel for your guests. Because of this, keep in mind a few guests might not be able to afford the trip, or possibly their age or health won’t allow them. Make sure to give your guest plenty of advance notice to plan for this reason. 

With its one-of-a-kind resort town charm, mountain destination weddings can be a bit on the pricey side and won’t offer the same selection of vendors you might find in a larger city. You will need to trust your planner and do research into the best available options.
