Fewer Crowds

One of the biggest perks of a weekday elopement? You practically have the place to yourselves! Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but you’ll definitely see fewer crowds than during a weekend.

You’ll have more privacy during your ceremony and all your intimate moments, and less people in the background of your photos!

Less Traffic

We all know that weekend traffic in Colorado, especially heading into the mountains, can be a bit of a nightmare. Choosing a weekday means you’ll be zipping through those winding roads with ease. Less time in traffic equals more time soaking in those epic Colorado views!

Better Vendor Availability

With the rising popularity of elopements, snagging your top-choice photographer (hello, that’s me!), celebrant, or florist can be a bit more tricky for weekend dates. Weekends are really popular and get booked up quickly. However, weekdays normally offer more flexibility in vendor calendars. If you choose a weekday date, you’re also likely to be able to plan your elopement on shorter notice.

Accommodation Availability

Ever tried booking that cozy mountain cabin or chic downtown Airbnb for a weekend getaway? You know the drill—it can be tough. Opting for a weekday elopement means you have your pick of accommodations, often without the need to book months in advance. Plus, many places offer lower rates during the week, so you can splurge on that place with the hot tub overlooking the mountains, knowing you got the best deal.

Better Value for Money

Speaking of deals, let’s talk about the overall affordability of a weekday elopement. From flights to Colorado to those charming bed and breakfasts, prices are often cheaper during weekdays. This means you can stretch your elopement budget further, whether that’s splurging on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure (helicopter ride, anyone?) or extending your stay for a mini-moon in the mountains. More affordable doesn’t mean less special; it means you get to enjoy even more of what beautiful Colorado has to offer.
