The Best Wedding Venues in the Western Slope. A guide to Western Colorado's top wedding locations

Updated: Dec 4, 2020

One of the most attractive features of getting married in Colorado is that we have almost every imaginable background at our fingertips. Whether you love epic mountain ranges covered in snow, sprawling vineyards with lush green vines, flat-topped red rock mesas, or sandy deserts filled with cacti, you can find it in Western Colorado. Our amazing scenery makes this a perfect place to get married, whether you are a Colorado local, or have never been here before. We have just as much variety available in wedding venues, which range from rustic barns surrounded by wide open space to the one-of-a-kind landscape found on the Colorado National Monument. You can venues for every price point from luxury, to practically free. Join me on a little tour of Western Colorado's best wedding venues, from Montrose and Ouray to Grand Junction, Palisade, Glenwood Springs and beyond!


If there is one thing Colorado is known for, it is our beautiful mountains. If you want to say "I do" on top of a mountain, you can't find a better place. Instead of spending a premium to hold your wedding in an exclusive ski town like Vail, Aspen, or Telluride, consider these nearby locations with just as much mountaintop "wow" factor for a fraction of the price tag.
