My Big Day was honored to plan a bridal shower for this lovely Fort Collins family. Mackenzie and Allison will wed this upcoming August.
Mackenzie's family hosted the shower in their home. Her mom, Nancy, is known for her martini parties. Their deck became 3 martini stations, where guests could mix their own drinks. A new food truck in town served up some amazing eats! And a dessert display took over the kitchen, with tons of bite sized sweets.

We are seeing some exciting wedding trends for 2015! My Big Day loves working with brides who have a vision and are willing to try new things. With every wedding season trends change and we can see patterns in popularity.
Here is what we are seeing for 2015:
Destination Weddings to the Colorado Mountains:
Living and having a business based in Colorado, we see 'mountain themed' weddings all the time. But in 2015 we are seeing more destination weddings to the Colorado mountains than ever! We have brides coming from out of state and getting married in Silverthorne, Breckenridge, Estes park, Vail, Beaver Creek, Granby, and Steamboat Springs.
Why are mountain weddings so popular?
We think it's because a wedding outdoors makes for great photos, Colorado has reliable weather, and Colorado is more affordable than having your friends and family fly to Bora Bora for your destination!
Classic Making a Comeback:
Everything old is new again! Simple elegance, white, gold accents, distinguished details... We are seeing the word "Classic" everywhere! Think lace... pastel pink... fine china ... crystal.... what weddings were, and are again!

Laser-Cut Wedding Invitations:
In 2015 laser cut and laser scribed invitations have definitely become popular. We are seeing "Classic" make a comeback, and laser cut invitations are a statement piece that can convey a classic theme to your guests. With the array of designs and intricacies available, these invitations set the tone of a wedding! They are great for Save the Dates too!
We received this laser scribed invitation from bride, Alicia:
"Frozen" Winter Weddings:
Blame it on Disney... weddings are not just for the summer (they never really have been). But more than ever, winter weddings are gaining in popularity. And why not!?! Snow makes the perfect background for soft, clean, sparkly elegance!

Forget the words "wedding video." Wedding movies are the new trend! My Big Day has worked with some incredible videographers who turn weddings into short films. We LOVE this trend!
Below is a wedding film from one of our recent weddings:
Craft Beer Weddings:
Being from Colorado, and having a business in Northern Colorado, "The Napa of Beer"... we find that craft beer has made it's way into the wedding scene - BIG TIME!
Signature cocktails will always be a fun offering for guests. But local, craft beer and spirits make your Big Day a celebration of you, and where you are from!

The highlight of the day for us was the love between Julian & Charlotte. There were so many emotions and nerves leading up to the ceremony. Julian could not wait to see his bride!

The reception was help at the park pavilion. Table were names with their favorite stadiums, and decorated with baseballs, sunflowers, and of course - Cracker Jacks! Guests signed homeplate as the guest book. The snack bar was filled with peanuts and pretzels, and the caterer, Common Link, hosted a smorgasbord of baseball themed gourmet food!
The day was simply perfect --- filled with joy and surprises!
My Big Day was honored to be the wedding planners for such a special day. And you know we love a theme!
The My Big Day team recently interviewed Taylor with Pelican Lakes and Water Valley, Windsor's event center, wedding site and golf course.
Whether you picture an indoor or outdoor reception Pelican Lakes can accommodate your dream. Looking for a beach wedding in the mountains? The two are hard to find, but there is a sandy beach and small island, suitable for wedding vows in front of your guests (up to 180 people).
The setting was perfect for this couple's country ranch themed wedding...
Bruce and Sherry got hitched at Ellis Ranch in Loveland. My Big Day was honored to be selected as the wedding planners for this fun day!
Bruce and Sherry were surrounded with love every moment of their Big Day. From the horse drawn carriage, to the photo booth, to the wagon used as a gift table... the little touches made all the difference!
Below are all the vendors in addition to My Big Day that made this beautiful wedding possible.
When planning for your Big Day, a big part of the prep can be the bachelor party, the bachelorette party, and the honeymoon.
Travel costs money, of course, but if you are looking for a fun time with your guys, gals, or a creative budget honeymoon destination, My Big Day can help.
Below are some links to articles we found on great places to celebrate, while trying not to break the bank!

My Big Day Events supports everything wedding and valentine related! One of our favorite annual traditions is the FREE wedding/vow renewal on the top of Loveland Mountain!
Loveland Ski Area’s 23nd Annual Mountaintop Matrimony & Ski Free on Valentine’s Day, Friday, February 14 is a “mass wedding” ceremony for couples getting married or renewing their vows. Couples and their guests must be able to ride a chairlift and ski or snowboard back to the base afterwards.
The lift ride takes approximately 12 minutes, and the ceremony takes about 30 minutes. After the ceremony, everyone returns to the Loveland Basin day lodge for the Honeymooner’s Apres Party with music, wedding cake, spirits and a best dressed contest (“ski wedding” attire is encouraged).
Participating couples must pre-register online by February 12 in order to receive the 2-for-1 lift ticket special. For more information, call 303-571-5580 Ext. 141.
Couples getting married are required to bring a Clear Creek County marriage license; the county office is at 405 Argentine St., Georgetown, 303-679-2339. Those renewing their vows do not need a license. All participating couples must sign in on the morning of Feb. 14th and are asked to be at the Ptarmigan Roost Cabin by 11:30 a.m.
We love a theme. Every party needs one, every event deserves one. Follow us on our journey down the path of creative party planning & exceptional events!
