Resources for Weddings affected by the Colorado Floods


After the rushing waters recede and emergency efforts turn to recovery, other pressing concerns come to light. In the thick of this epic flood event, Eric and I were scheduled to attend the Bridal Festivals bridal show in Loveland last Sunday but organizers rescheduled to September 29.

It’s one of many events forced to reschedule because of flooding. Fall is a very popular time for weddings in Colorado and many were scheduled to take place in the flood-affected areas like Estes Park and Lyons. We have compiled a list of resources that may help you save the day. With information coming and going so fluidly in a crisis like this, it is by no means a complete list so if you know of a place affected couples can go, please share it with us and we’ll post it here. And, of course, we’ve added a link to the Red Cross to keep the love flowing to those with more pressing needs.
