Good Bye to the Mason Jar

OK, what I’m about to say may just break your heart. We have come to the end of the Mason Jar Era. I know, I know. You can’t believe it! You don’t believe it! You down right refuse to believe it! I’ve been working on our newest issue—out soon, I promise—and in speaking with several wedding industry pros, I’ve heard more than just a few…

Get "The Whole Shebang" at Al Lado

Al Lado Latin Wines & Tapas is a Denver neighborhood bar with stellar wine, a cozy vibe, and a distinctly Latin style—and they’re offering a great option for parties (like bachelorette shindigs or a really swank shower) called “The Whole Shebang.” Created by internationally-recognized Chef Richard Sandoval, the restaurant features a…

                      Find the one. Get engaged. Watch a million reruns of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress, dreaming about your perfect gown. That’s usually how it goes, isn’t it? Choosing the perfect wedding dress is anything but easy, but Kleinfeld’s fashion director Randy Fenoli always…

Pretty in Pink

People Magazine offered a glimpse of its newest cover, which features the wedding of celebrity couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, who wore pink. The two were married on Oct. 19 in southern Italy surrounded by a star-studded audience of friends and family. Timberlake serenaded his stunning bride, and the two wrote their own vows. Biel, who…

Pull Up a Chair

Sometimes renting chairs for your wedding can be like picking the lesser of two evils. Do you want the ugly beige non-folding plastic chairs or the ugly black folding plastic chairs? It could all just make a bride lose her cool. But hope is not lost. Chairished Vintage Chair Rentals, nestled into the uber-chic Highlands of Denver, has a growing…

Something Old

You’re newly engaged! Congratulations. Soon you’ll be donning the perfect dress, something old and something blue as you make your way down the aisle to say ‘I do’ to the person that you’ve chosen to love in sickness and health, for richer or for poorer. All that’s left to do is plan your dream wedding and you’ll be on your way to…

A Gypsy Wedding

Colorado photographer and wedding planner Laura Pearson of L Elizabeth Events loves to do things differently. And you can tell with this gypsy-inspired shoot she hosted this spring. While TLC’s My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding is all about giant pink gowns with tons of “bling,” Pearson and company create a more romantic, vintage style with rich…

Country Wedding/City Wedding

Colorado Brides set out to compile various weddings that reflect the two extremes of the Colorado wedding spectrum: the country wedding and the city wedding. We’ve found that the Colorado bride is a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll—but all elegance. And it reflects in the following real weddings, which capture the Rocky…

Colorado-izing Your Cake

                  We’ve been spotting a ton of Colorado-themed cakes these days. From faux bois to skier cake-toppers to cakes made to resemble actual bales of hay. But we love the cakes that have a not-so-obvious Colorado style. In that spirit, Colorado Brides Magazine and Intricate Icings of Erie…

Tying Someone Else’s Knot

                    The request took me by surprise—my friends Jason and Hallie, who were engaged to be married, asked if I would do the honors and officiate their wedding. It was a flattering offer, to be sure, but I was momentarily speechless. I’m not a priest, rabbi or minister of any sort…
