My Big Day Events presents our 7th annual Halloween party, "Noco Boo's and Booze!"
Spirited Halloween party people come from all over Northern Colorado!
(Loveland, Fort Collins, Windsor, Greeley, Berthoud, Timnath, Longmonth, Johnstown, Evans, Estes Park, etc.)
Formally called "Massacre on Mahogany," this party has grown year after year, and has moved to a new location!
This year we've partnered with The Mainline Ale House in Old Town to host the wildest Halloween Bash in NoCo. The entire upper level is a private party just for our VIP guests!

If you are planning an event with a Mardi Gras or NOLA flair, then look no further than J. Gumbo’s Cajun and Creole Restaurant to fulfill your culinary dreams!
This Fort Collins franchise, located in the Council Tree Shopping Center (by Super Target on Harmony Rd), offers some of the region’s best Cajun tastes – for in store dining and event catering. Managed by David Slocum, the Fort Collins J. Gumbo team works diligently to bring the most authentic Cajun and Creole flavors and traditional meals to their customers. They offer a variety of tasty favorites such as home-style Gumbo, spicy VooDoo Chicken, colorful BumbleBee Stew, and a crowd pleaser – honey cornbread. An added plus: their website offers nutritional values for each dish in addition to vegetarian AND gluten free options for customers to choose from.
My Big Day, LLC has had the privilege of working with Dave and his catering team at a large corporate event. Dave was easy going, flexible, and provided excellent service. He brought a team of hardworking and friendly servers. The event schedule had to be modified throughout the evening, and the J Gumbo's team rose to the occasion. Not only did they provide friendly service, the food was delicious and they offered many extras such as fruit and dessert with their Cajun cuisine!
For our fellow event planners, or corporate party coordinators, It's worth mentioning that J Gumbo's can cater a party from 3 to 300!
My Big Day friends and family members would also say it's worth mentioning that carry-out is a breeze and their pricing is AFFORDABLE!
J. Gumbo’s is a national chain, but you can reach our local establishment at (970) 672-8375. You can visit their website at www.jgumbos.com
-The My Big Day Event Planning Team
My Big Day is a BIG fan of any event that benefits people and businesses in multiple ways.
Great Plates is one of those events. The Fort Collins Downtown Business Association puts on this event every year, and it's benefits are three-fold:
- Restaurants receive business from potentially NEW customers that have never tried their restaurant before
- Customers get to try these restaurants at a great, discounted price
- The Food Bank of Larimer County benefits from this event, and in turn, raises enough money to serve thousands of meals!
The only problem we have is that the event only lasts two weeks, and we don't have enough time to try each restaurant!
For more information on this event, visit DowntownFortCollins.com --- but don't wait too long! The event this year is from March 1-14, 2014.

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.
My Big Day consistently promotes a variety of date nights, because we think entertaining dates keep us young and fun!
And there is nothing we enjoy more than a comedy date!
Add in some booze and you have the PERFECT night out!
That's exactly what "Comedy on the Rocks" is bringing to Denver! 4 hours of laughter and cocktails.
Comedic headliners are Tommy Davidson (of “In Living Color”) and Craig Showmaker, the “Lovemaster.”
A portion of the proceeds goes to Wounded Warrior Impacting Neighbors.
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!
