Hello my soon-to-be fellow Housewives!
Welcome to the second Bridal Playbook published by the Colorado Springs Housewives!
This is meant to be a guide to some of Colorado Springs finest venues and vendors from around the area - a great source for local brides or if you're just planning an event!
3 Cord Meadows
" Blue skies that seem to go on forever, rolling hills, and unspoiled views of our beautiful front range. Wildflowers, butterflies, and warm prairie breezes. Brilliant pink and orange sunsets, shooting stars, and acres of quiet country. "
Welcome to 3 Cord Meadows
" Located a short 30 minute drive east of Colorado Springs, we are close enough to enjoy the conveniences of the city, but far enough away that you can celebrate in the quiet solitude that only the plains of Colorado can offer.
Our eclectic country-chic venue is family owned and family run. You and your guests will have access to a variety of amenities that become a blank canvas for your own individual vision, but always offers vintage simplicity and beauty. Enjoy the red, metal sided building with beautiful wooden doors, an outdoor ceremony area with the most gorgeous view of Pikes Peak, a courtyard area brimming with twinkling lights, rocking chairs and wildflowers, and a hay barn that provides additional comforts while enjoying the outdoors, and a quaint, chabby chic bridal barn for time with close friends and family prior to the big party.

We are proud to have a difficult, rigorous hiring and training model that focuses on top rate hospitality, continued bar education, and nationally recognized safety certifications. Black Tie Beverages is the easiest way to give any event an unforgettable bar. "

" From the first kiss to the first dance, you've planned a future together with your new partner and now you can help protect it financially. Calling insurance companies may not feel like the most romantic activity for a newlywed couple, but it may help you save money that could help pay off the honeymoon or save for a down-payment on your new home! Our agency focuses on building relationships with our clients and treats each family independently, not giving you a one-size-fits-all policy. We take the time to discover what coverages you need to fully protect all you have worked so hard for. "
