6 Reasons to Plan a Weekday Colorado Elopement


A couple marries in Breckenridge for their weekday Colorado elopement.

Gone are the days your wedding needs to be on a Saturday. Plan a weekday Colorado elopement! We’ve found the best days to elopement to be a Tuesday or Wednesday – but Mondays and Thursdays are great options, too! When you choose to elope, the simple decision to skip the weekend opens up a whole load of possibilities for you.

1. Fewer Crowds!

Trust us, this is in your favor. Maybe you want a winter elopement (read: ski season) or maybe you want to catch the best fall colors (leaf-peepers abound) – whatever you envision for your big day, the crowds will be much more manageable in the middle of the week. You don’t want to waste precious time sitting in traffic or weaving through people on the trails when you could be dancing with your new spouse on a wide open mountaintop, right?

2. More privacy

Is this just a different way to say “fewer crowds”?? – maybe. Probably.

3. Vendor Availability

Planning a weekday Colorado elopement will allow you a better chance at snagging the vendors you want than a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday will.

Keep in mind: more availability does not translate to cheaper rates. Most vendors will charge the same no matter the date.

4. Fewer Crowds!

Oh. Did we already say that?

5. Prettier views!

Because fewer people are in the way.

6. Better vacation experience overall!

You’ll have more lodging availability. You’ll be able to get tables at your favorite restaurants. You can hit up the best trails without trouble. You’ll have an easier drive when you’re going to and from the airport. Weekdays are just really THE BEST.
