Destination wedding weekends are continuing to grown in popularity. And no wonder! Turning a one-day event into a three or four day affair allows you to really soak in that precious time with family and friends. Shared activities around the wedding are more than just keeping guests entertained. They’re also about making memories that you’ll be talking about long after your first anniversary. Here are some unique experiences for wedding guests at a Colorado destination wedding that they won’t soon forget!
Shopping trip. Take advantage of Colorado’s outdoors-loving culture by planning an excursion like a hike or cross country ski day. Then make an event out of the prep as much as the excursion itself by going shopping for gear as a group!
River rafting. If you’re planning a summer wedding in Colorado, then getting out into the rapids is a great idea! As well as some adrenaline-pumping white water navigation, guests will be able to experience some of our extraordinary scenery first hand.
Cooking class. Why not make dinner an interactive experience with a group cooking class under the tutelage of a master chef? At the Cooking School of Aspen, for example, you can choose between classes from pasta making to baking at altitude.
Open air concerts. Summer in Colorado means a number of open air concerts, from jazz to classical to rock and blues. Great music amongst great company in the mountain air… What could be better?
Mountaintop yoga. Mornings are often neglected on the wedding weekend agenda, so give your guests the option of starting their day the zen way. A gondola ticket up Aspen mountain gives you access to mountaintop yoga classes on select days between June and August. Otherwise, you can book a private party via Aspen Shakti complete with champagne toast and live DJ.
Snowmobile tour. If you’re planning a winter wedding then a snowmobile tour is a once in a lifetime, high energy experience not to be missed! For example, Telluride Outfitters offer a two-hour trip that not only takes in the beautiful mountain scenery, but goes through a historic mining camp, so history buffs will enjoy themselves as much as alpine adventurers! I just recommend saving this adventure for the day after the wedding. Just in case, you don’t want any injuries getting in the way of your late night dancing!
