How To Create The Ultimate Ski Resort Wedding Experience

Whether you choose one plank or two, if you love sliding down the mountains in winter time, why shouldn’t you pay homage to that on your wedding day?

So today we’re talking about

How To Create The Ultimate Ski Resort Wedding Experience
(Even When You Aren’t In A Ski Resort)

So it’s decided. Your happy place is when you’re cruising the slopes and riding fresh powder. And you want to include that in your wedding day. You also know that you want your wedding to be a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experience for your guests.

Well you’re in luck. Press play on the playlist below and start dreaming of the slopes as you plan your ski wedding.

There are so many great ways to give your guests that ski resort wedding experience, even if you can’t actually be in the ski resort. So here are some great ways to make your wedding feel like a ski resort without having to ship in a truckload of fake snow and men in lederhosen (although I fully support this option too!).

Lift Passes for Invites

Let people know right from the first moment that you’re going to be sharing your love of the mountains with them on your wedding day by sending invites inspired by ski passes. I love these ones from Etsy.Ski wedding invitations designed like a lift ticket

Have An Après Ski Party

Why not start the celebrations with a little apres ski party. Get those cheesy tunes on a playlist like this one and start practising your best après dance moves whilst doing shots from a ski. And even if you might have to resist dancing on the tables in your ski boots, you can still have some of your favourite après cocktails on the menu to get you in the mood.

Ski Related Decorations

Get creative with your decorations. Vintage skis or an old snowboard make a great alternative to a traditional guestbook and will make a wonderful piece of art for your home too. But my absolute favourite touch. Ski boots instead of vases for your flowers!Ski boot vase at a ski resort wedding in Austria


Set Up A Vintage Ski Photobooth

A photobooth with a difference. Forget fake moustaches and silly hats. Get some vintage ski wear on eBay, a mountain-themed backdrop, and let your guests go wild playing grown-up dress-up with some retro ski gear.
