Can you get married on the same day in Boulder and Denver?
There’s no waiting period on marriage licenses in Colorado, so you can get married the same day as you apply for your license. If you are visiting from out of state, you should consider getting in a few days before your actual elopement so you have time to visit the county clerk’s office — and adjust to the altitude — before the big day.
What is the best time of year for a Boulder elopement?
The first thing to know about weather in Boulder and Denver is that it is very unpredictable. Be prepared to be a little bit flexible in any season, as last-minute changes in the forecast are common. That said, both Denver and Boulder are beautiful all year for outdoor elopements. If you’re worried about inclement weather, July through September are the only months where you are unlikely to see snow around these parts. This means you’ll also have the widest array of open locations to choose from, but it also means more competition from other couples.
If you have your heart set on a wildflower backdrop, July is your month. If you’re keen on fall foliage, plan to visit in September or October. If you want to avoid the crowds and competition at some of the region’s more popular outdoor attractions, the winter months are your best bet.
Each January as part of the National Western Stock Show, a parade of livestock rumbles through the streets of Denver, so check the calendar if your elopement is planned for the beginning of the year. This way, you can choose to avoid the festivities or incorporate them into your elopement photoshoot!
What is the best day of the week for a Boulder or Denver elopement?
Boulder is very popular for elopements and gets a lot of visitors. If you can plan your elopement on a weekday, you have a better chance of securing the venue of your dreams and avoiding the hassle of traffic and crowded footpaths.
