Couples camp out for days to get Denver wedding venue permits
DENVER – There was a long line of people camping out along Colfax in downtown Denver Friday morning. No, it wasn’t for tickets to a rock concert or the latest smartphone. The couples shivering in line were hoping to get the perfect Denver venue for their 2014 wedding.
The doors opened at 6 a.m., at which point the Denver Parks and Recreation office began accepting applications for 2014 events and weddings.
It was a long wait for some couples, who had been camping out since Wednesday.
Wedding venues can run thousands of dollars. Many of them that are more reasonably priced have extra fees or an inability to accommodate large wedding parties.
Getting married in one of Denver’s beautiful parks can provide a solution to both of those issues: You also get a gorgeous backdrop for your special day and invite up to 350 people. Among the available venues are four historic sites and the new central park in Stapleton, with fees ranging from just $260 to $1,500.
