There is no better backdrop do say “I do” than Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. From spring to fall, the lush green mountains with their snow capped peaks offer any couple their dream wedding. While Colorado can provide you with one of the most scenic weddings in the world, many of these beautiful spots are quite remote and may be a challenge to get your party to. Mountain passes behold winding roads with big cliff drop-offs which often scare drivers not used to that type of travel, renting cars for your entire party can be very expensive, and many of top venues for weddings are short on parking. Here are a few reasons to why private charters are the perfect transportation for your Colorado mountain wedding.
Parking Can be Limited at Mountain Venues
Many of the best venues for weddings in the Colorado mountains provide great environments of nature and seclusion. One of the ways this seclusion is created is by limiting how many people can get there, often by limiting parking. If you’re having wedding in the mountains of Colorado you probably have many guests that are traveling near and far to see you take your vows, and the last thing you want is to make them park way down the road and walk or scramble last minute to find a way to the venue. Take care of your guests by providing transportation!
Some Venues Aren’t Easily Accessible
Along with limited parking, the remoteness of these venues can present a challenge your guest should not endure. Most venues will require driving up and down steep mountain roads with sharp switchbacks and steep cliffs just a few feet to the side the of your vehicle. Save your guests from having a high-stress drive on the way to your wedding and provide them with a professional driver that can safely drive those roads in all weather conditions while your guests sit back and relax.
Private charters can also bring a touch of luxury to your wedding while not breaking the bank. Most private shuttles will be very luxurious vehicles. If you ride with Peak 1 Express, we provide sleek Mercedes Sprinter vans with comfortable seats. These incredible vehicles include free WiFi for the longer treks, outlets to charge up your phones or cameras, and free bottled water. Our private charter services also allow guests to drink aboard, so the celebration never has to stop!
Quality, Customized Service
Another reason private charters are the way to go is for the ability to completely customize the service to perfectly meet your needs. Have multiple stops your party needs to make? Not a problem. Private charters are usually paid for as an hourly service, so you can go anywhere you like for the time you have them. Plus, wedding receptions are always an enjoyable time, and no guest of yours should ever have to drive back to their hotel after a night of proper wedding celebration.
Everyone who has been to a great wedding knows that pre-parties are common. The Groomsmen may often put down some whiskey while the bridesmaids sip on mimosas, with friends of both parties joining in. On private shuttles, guest are allowed to consume adult beverages during the ride. Whether its to start the celebration early or to calm the nerves on your big day, everyone can get to the venue (and back) safely with no problems with the law.
Take Care of Your Guests
While you are never required to provide transportation to your wedding, it is incredibly nice if you do. Take one of the many stresses of travel off your guest, especially those from out of town who are unfamiliar with the area and do not have their own mode of transportation. Don’t make them guess and stress about finding a ride and parking. Private shuttles provide your guest with the safest way in and out of the mountains for many reasons. Many of these guests are going to be part of your family now, so set a good impression from day one!
