  • Who can be an officiant in Colorado?

    We have great news for you: Colorado is a self-solemnizing state. This means you may select a loved one, a judge, religious representative, spiritual leader, and truly anyone you choose to marry you and sign the marriage license. You can even be your own officiant. Only a few states have this option, be sure to research this law if you are getting married somewhere other than Colorado. Here's more good news: You are allowed to get your marriage license in any Colorado county, it doesn't have to be your "home" county or where your ceremony will be held. Keep in mind the marriage must, by law, take place within 35 days of obtaining the marriage license. Check in with your county clerk for more details and fee information. Look for a future blog on how to select an officiant and feel free to contact us for guidance in this area.

  • BUDGETING 101 -- What is your MUST HAVE?

    Here's the short version: decide on a budget, how much wiggle room it has, and then get pricing set up so you can make decisions. Vendors tend to book up early, advice givers suggest 1 year in advance to get THE vendor you want. If your time line is shorter, be prepared for alternate plans. Below is screenshot from the Brides website on general costs, where you put your emphasis matters, as you can see: ELNORA TURNER/BRIDES According to the Brides American Wedding Survey from 2018, the average wedding costs approximately $44,105 and has about 167 guests. (Note: Hiring a wedding planner? A day-of coordinator can charge $1,500 and up, while an event designer will cost around 10 percent of your budget.) Use the handy guide below as a rough outline for spending breakdowns and adjust according to your priorities. Budget Breakdown Venue and Catering: 40 percent of your budget Photography and Videography: 15 percent of your budget Wedding Attire and Beauty: 5 percent of your budget Music/Entertainment: 10 percent of your budget Flowers: 10 percent of your budget Favors and Gifts: 2 percent of your budget Transportation: 3 percent of your budget Stationery: 3 percent of your budget Cake: 2 percent of your budget Décor: 10 percent of your budget Contact Pearl Events at or give us a call at 303 949 7909 and leave a detailed message. We'd love to talk with you and help you make YOUR DAY/YOUR WAY!


    We love upcycling and have made many decorative pieces for events that are 20% of the cost of new. We can advise on, teach you, and even create upcycled decorative elements for YOUR DAY, YOUR WAY! Here are some examples to think about that save you money, provide an opportunity for you to create something that plays a role in your big day, and you can give away as gifts or keep for use for years and years: 1: Florals can be fresh or silk and arranged in vessels you pick up at charity thrift stores 2. Yes, you can make your own bouquet, lots of great and simple designs exist that then can be used as table decor after the ceremony 3. Use table cloths of the same color and intensity found in charity thrift stores -- an iron and coordinated place settings do wonders to pull it all together. Shabby Chic is only one example, you CAN be simply chic with the right combination 4. Buy or rent a gown? Options exist. The Altar is one of our favorite gently used gown stores. They have not-yet-worn items as well. Renting, also an option and cost effective. Party dresses work great as "gowns" too. Want to wear that dress again, go with the party option or buy one you can have adjusted to fit other event needs. FUN ALERT: before you have your gown adjusted throw a gown luncheon where you and your friends wear your dresses before they become a new creation. 5. What about left-over food? Most caterers will pack up the food at the end of the event for you to take home. Check out your local food banks, they might come and pick it up. There's an award winning company in Denver called We Don't Waste, they could be an excellent option for you
