Think Practically to Pull Off a Worry-Free Wedding
If you’re renting a Colorado Wedding Venue like ours: The Ellis Ranch Wedding and Event Center, be sure you find out if you’ll need someone to bus the tables if you’ve rented china for your wedding reception. Though we have many amenities here, we’d have to hire someone to bus tables. It would be more cost-effective if you asked a friend or hired someone yourself. If you rent china, if you have not made arrangements with the catering company to bus the table and pay them to do so, someone in your wedding party would have to bus for you.
Insurance is critical to have. Make sure your DJ, Photographer, Caterer, Florist, and the Venue have liability insurance. Don’t assume anything – especially this. Most venues will not allow vendors who are not properly licensed and insured to work at their facility.
Your wedding cake: unless you have made arrangements to have someone cut your cake ahead of time don’t assume the person who made it or delivered the cake will cut the cake and don’t assume the caterer’s staff will do the cutting. You must make arrangements ahead of time.
Clean up, who is responsible? As with our venue and many other venues, ours is a facility rental only and you will be responsible for you own clean up unless arrangements are made ahead of time. Some venues give you this option to help you save money.
Alcohol, don’t assume you will be able to place bottle of wine on the tables. Make sure you have talked in length with the venue manage about alcohol requirements, do and don’ts.

Don’t assume you can bring in decorating supplies the day before your wedding or leave things that evening at the venue to be picked up the next day. Make arrangements, some venue have strict regulations concerning delivery and pick up times.
When planning any event, whether it’s a romantic Colorado rustic wedding or reception, always have a plan B ready. Furthermore, with Mother Nature having a mind of her own, we can’t always assume the weather will be perfect.
In conclusion, we hope these tips help you with your planning of your next event or wedding. We all want the day to so smoothly and memorable in the good way.
