    I think I may be the only person here not going tropical for my destination wedding. Did I join the wrong website? Hehehe... So we are going to Sun Valley (snow town resort...like Aspen or Blackhomb but smaller) and I was hoping for some interesting winter ideas. I am starting searching for bargains now even though the wedding isn't until December. So far my ideas are:
    The $1 mittens that you can get at Target/Walmart
    Local maps/info
    Hand sanitizer

    I feel like lots of things are missing....

      I think your destination is awesome! My fiance and I discussed getting married at Lake Tahoe (in the winter) before we decided on a summer wedding in the Dominican. I really like your ideas and think you're on the right track. You might still want to consider including aspirin for hangovers, band aids, or other hangover/first aid related items if you think you need more items. Also, a small bottle of lotion might be good since skin can get chapped in the cold weather. I love the mittens idea- so cute! The OOT bags can be as simple or extravagant as you want, your guests will love them no matter what...good luck!!

        Those are great ideas. You could also add a book or travel sized games, etc.

          If you're Christian, a Christmas ornament that goes with the theme of your wedding.

              How many people? That can change some ideas...the OOT bags can get quite expense.

              We threw in the 3 pack of the Starbucks coffee, because hotel coffee sometimes is really bad!
              Travel Mugs
              Some warm dessert/snack...cookies are always a plus or any kind of chocolate.

                I think a scarf would fit in nicely and its unisex. I just got back from Aspen a few weeks ago and I love wearing scarves cause I just don't get to in florida.

                    How about a personalized scarf or ear muffs! Oh and what about those instant hand warmer thingies they sell at the gas station (don't know where you live but I'm in PA!). Maybe a few packets of assorted teas...

                      To go with the hot cocoa, I have seen chocolate dipped spoons with crushed candy canes. These would be pretty simple to DIY too. You could even incorporate your colors with a ribbon tied around the plastic baggie.
