We recently put down a deposit on The Peak Community Center in Littleton. (http://www.ifoothills.org) Their pricing was really reasonable and they don’t care how you handle your catering/bar/DJ ect. They pretty much just said “you’re responsible if Uncle Eddie puts a bottle of vodka through our window.”

I was a little worried using a rec-center, but its actually pretty nice looking. (ie: there is no swimming pool, basketball court ect with a bunch of people running around)

Their event space can be split into pieces, so you rent 1 for 50 people, 2 rooms for 100 people, and so on. We are paying $50/room per hour, (which goes up a little bit outside of what they call “business hours,”) There’s a huge patio/grass area that we’re using for the ceremony (an extra $300) and they have all the tables and chairs included in the cost. (No linens though) There’s also a huge kitchen at one end of the space. And you can rent extras from them like sound equipment, a bar, and an arch.

We thought about vacation homes too (but we have too many people.) This is the website I was using: http://www.vrbo.com/vacation-rentals/usa/colorado/denver-area/denver-metro/denver  It involves a little bit of digging but a few even say specifically “hey! have your wedding in our lawn!”

It’s difficult enough to find something affordable, I can’t imagine trying to do it from a distance! If you’re interested, I’d be happy to forward you photos she sent me (and some I took myself on our last visit)
Good luck!

We’ve booked Meadow Creek Bed & Breakfast and Lodge… it is AMAZING!  There are seven rooms in the lodge (3 with hot-tubs!) An outdoor hottub, sauna, tons of decks and chairs, and such a great people running it.

Then you can have your wedding at a gazebo or out in a field with a bunch of aspen trees behind you.  For the reception they have a pavillion with tons of windows and natural light with white with wood accents, country, but not overly rustic…

SO EXCITED to have our wedding there!  It is just south of Evergreen about 45 minutes from I-25 and I-225 (where they intersect in the Denver Tech Center).

@DizzyDaffodil:

We are getting married this November at Meadow Creek, too!! I’m so excited, isn’t it just beautiful?! It’s definitely for a smaller crowd, but I know this is another B&B just down the road with 5 or 6 more rooms is that is an option.

@barndance– there’s got to be a ton of sites out there with Colo vaca rentals, though they might be more in the mountains. Good luck to you!

I was just remembering and I believe a friend of my mom’s came out for a wedding at the American Safari Ranch Resort (or something like this). It’s by Fairplay, so a good hour SW of Denver. But the couple rented the lodge & cabins for a whole week & had tons of “western” things for the guests to do. It definitely sounded like your straight-from-the-rodeo wedding, but my mom’s friend said it was a blast.

That’s great!  I just fell in love with Meadow Creek!  It was the first place we looked at and I don’t even know why I looked at other locations… it was just perfect!  We’re getting married June 2011 with about 70 guests, and of course booked the entire lodge for the weekend.  I’m so excited and planning like crazy on how to decorate for our perfect cheery vintage country wedding!

Tapestry House near Fort Collins is lovely, though it doesn’t fit 60 overnight. The Armstrong Hotel downtown is great for guests to stay – very easy to block rooms. And there are several condos in town available for rent.

Our wedding is at the Historic Flowers House. No accomodation, and music until 9 only though.

Good luck! Make sure your guests book hotels / condos early. We went to Estes Park last September and lots of places were full when I called a couple weeks before we went. It will be ski season at Winter Park and it’s always tourist season in Estes. We were really disappointed people most didn’t book with our favorite hotel where we’d blocked rooms, and they sold out as soon as our block expired. Condos in town were all booked too.
