Memorial Day Weekend Wedding


I'm getting married in Apen (Aspen Meadows Resort) May 23rd of this year. I'm having people fly in from all over the counrty and am really worried that many shops and restaurants won't be open. I'm also getting married outdoors and hoping that I'm not being too unrealistic thinking it will be sunny and cool. Any advice on restaurants, activities and weather would be very much appreciated!!!!

It's correct, some shops and restaurants won't be open. Things do pick up on Memorial Day weekend, but they really get rolling in the first week or two of June with Food & Wine. Since you're only here for a long weekend, though, you will be fine with plenty to do.

For most of your requests such as restaurants and activities, it would be best if you reach out to either your conference service manager at the Meadows or their concierge as they can do all of this leg work for you. Have a list made for your guests' arrival that lists which restaurants are open and if they're doing good prix fixe menus, and also recommended activities. For the money you are spending on your wedding the hotel would be happy to fulfill their role in servicing your guests.

On weather, I'm not trying to be flippant, but I won't be able to reassure you...it's Colorado and anything really is possible. I would just make sure you have an inclement weather back up planned and then you've done all you can. The location is absolutely beautiful weather it's sunny or snowing.
