Inspiration for your road to the altar

Après Ski Wedding Inspiration

May 17, 2010


Happy Monday, friends! Even though the warm weather is (finally) starting to appear, I know a lot of you are in the midst of planning winter weddings. So, when I got an email from a reader asking for a little help with her après ski inspired nuptials, I thought I would share what I came up with in case it can help some of you as well!

The image in the middle was provided by the bride, and is the inspiration behind their invitations. They plan to have guests sign a pair of antique skis in lieu of a guest book but I thought it would also be fun to have some hanging above the escort card table, like the picture on the top right. The boutonniere photo is made of cinnamon sticks, so it smells as good as it looks! What do you think? Are any of you planning winter weddings?

    Very nice inspiration board. I have long loved both that cake and that poster. I believe the Mammoth Ski Museum in Mammoth Lakes sells that poster. They will also sell a print that you or your graphic designer can use as an invitation or other paper elements.

    I also saw a wedding a year or so back where the couple had guests sign a pair of antique wooden skis. In hindsight, I wish I had our guests sign a trail map.

    Again, awesome inspiration board!

    oooh, how about a fall inspiration board? We're getting married in Colorado in October and plan on serving hot apple cider for cocktail hour and are lost about what to do beyond that
