Its highly likely that you'll be able to experience some beautiful colors with a fall wedding in Colorado, but during that time of year the weather is really unpredictable. You have to be willing to accept a variety of possibilities. Early snow in October is possible, along with hail storms. Or it could be a beautiful sunny day.  

If you're doing a small wedding outside, it might be a good idea to have umbrellas on hand or an indoor backup location if desired. On average Colorado experiences a ton of sunshine throughout the year. But the climate changes constantly and abruptly. Even if you were planning a summer wedding here, you'd have to consider afternoon thunderstorms.

Peak color time for a fall wedding in Colorado is usually Mid-September through mid-October. But it varies from year to year when that optimal fall foliage is going to be. The recipe for ideal fall colors is lots of sunshine and coolish temperatures, but not freezing temps.
