The Broadmoor is a legendary destination resort nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs, Colorado. With picturesque mountain views, luxurious accommodations, and unmatched services and amenities, The Broadmoor is the ultimate destination to host an unforgettable wedding weekend.
If you’re looking to host a lavish retreat for you and your guests filled with adventure-packed days and lavish celebrations, then The Broadmoor is a match made in heaven for you and your spouse-to-be! Follow along as we share the perfect wedding weekend itinerary.
Get the party started early by arriving on the Wednesday before your big day! This not only allows for some extra R&R and fun, but it’s important to give your body a few days to adjust to the altitude if you’re coming from out of state.
Set up a couples’ spa day for you and your significant other to relax while guests are getting settled in their rooms. The Broadmoor staff can place welcome bags in their rooms filled with water bottles, local treats like exclusive handmade chocolates from Cafe Julie’s, an itinerary, and more. This will be much appreciated whether your family and friends traveled from near or far.
Take your time getting up, trust us when we say this weekend will be go, go, go! With a variety of restaurants, cafes and more, everyone can have breakfast on their own time. Or, opt for ordering breakfast to your room for a little extra peace and quiet.
In the afternoon, meet your wedding party and immediate family on the golf course for a little friendly competition; a Putting Green Contest. The Broadmoor Golf Club is consistently ranked among the best in the world. Not to mention, it has one of the best views! After some fun in the sun, freshen up before heading to a private family dinner for both sets of families in an intimate setting. Meanwhile, your wedding party can let loose at The Golden Bee, an English pub with nightly entertainment.
Start your morning off at the spa with fresh manis and pedis with your bridesmaids for the big day. Afterward, you can enjoy a bridal luncheon on the South Terrace with a round of bubbly. This is also a great time to gift something special to those you hold dearest and simply say thank you for all they do for you.
Feeling up to some adventure too? After lunch, enjoy a friendly game of Rubber Duck Capture where hundreds of rubber ducks are dumped into the Cheyenne Lake and you and your bridal party can form teams of two, hop into paddleboats and use nets to ‘capture’ as many rubber ducks as possible. So fun!
While you’re relaxing and enjoying time with the girls, send the groom and his men off on a fly fishing outing! And, guests who have arrived early can explore Seven Falls. Seven Falls is the only waterfall in Colorado to have earned a spot on National Geographic’s list of International Waterfalls; so it’s safe to say it is a must-see! At Seven Falls, guests can go zip lining, hiking and even shopping!
After a full day of activities, join your wedding party, families and invited guests at the Mountain Club House for a fabulous rehearsal dinner. The Mountain Club House is the newest venue option at The Broadmoor. Perched on Cheyenne Mountain, the Mountain Club House offers sweeping views of both the mountain backdrop and the lights of downtown Colorado Springs with a refined rustic look and feel.
From there, the remainder of your guests can join you for a welcome reception outside at the Mountain Clubhouse for cocktails and late-night nibbles. This is a great time to greet guests and get in some conversations and hugs! Try not to stay too late, you’ll want your beauty rest for the big day!
While you’ll spend the morning with your wedding party in one of The Broadmoor’s beautiful suites enjoying a nice breakfast and getting ready, guests will have plenty of activities to keep them occupied before the ceremony. From relaxing by the pool to breaking a sweat at a wedding guest pickleball tournament, the activity options are endless.
The Broadmoor has a variety of breathtaking locations, like our Lakeside Terrace and Main Ballroom (or Lake Terrace Dining Room, depending on the images you pull), to select for your ceremony, and the same goes for the cocktail hour, dinner and dancing! But, one thing that stands this venue apart from others is the bowling alley. The celebration doesn’t have to end when the Dj stops playing tunes. Join the night owls for some nightcaps and fun. Play at The Broadmoor features bowling lanes, a shuffleboard table, a pool table, foosball and game monitors to keep the fun going all night. The Broadmoor can even customize a few of the bowling monitors to showcase photos of the couple, how cute!
This will truly be a day and night to remember for everyone!
The big celebration may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye just yet! Host a farewell brunch at the Mountain View Terrace for one last toast to your next adventure — married life! Mountain View Terrace offers the privacy of an enclosed patio, with a view of the Cheyenne Mountain. The perfect ending for your guests to say goodbye and wish you well before you depart for your mini-moon at Ranch at Emerald Valley. Guests may even choose to extend their stay for a few more days to continue to enjoy The Broadmoor and all it has to offer.
The Ranch at Emerald Valley is surrounded by over 100,00 acres of the Pike National Forest. The Ranch at Emerald Valley is an unmatched, all-inclusive retreat that combines the rustic charm of a wilderness enclave with The Broadmoor’s incomparable luxury and service – making it the perfect place to start your marriage!
