Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, CO
Besides affordable wedding venues in Denver, Colorado, there are many great spots across the state. The appeal of Garden of the Gods as a wedding venue is the spectacular surroundings and the price, free! There are a few considerations to take into account. There are no reservations available, you are limited to 50 guests depending on the location, and the ceremony must be brief. Receptions are only allowed at the nearby picnic areas, but the red rock formations will make for a memorable event, so it is certainly worthy of your consideration.
Some Additional Things to Mull Over
Looking for more tips from Gary? Here are more thoughts on weddings and your budget. Friday and Saturday wedding venues will be more expensive. Having a wedding during the week may not be ideal but the prices may be much more affordable. Some locations have strict rules to consider while others discourage outside vendors or have a preferred list of vendors. Such considerations may make the location more or less desirable.
Finally, the size of your guest list can make a big difference in cost—take time to think about each person you with to invite to participate in your special day. While a big party may be a lot of fun, keeping on budget with fewer loved ones and special friends in attendance can be equally enjoyable!
