    So ladies I know you are all creative with the beach theme stuff...but I am getting married at a ski resort...think Aspen! But smaller! It's in Idaho and I have officially decided I am the only snow bride on here!! I already have my invitations ordered and the programs in the DIY stage but I'm trying to think of creative things for the welcome bags. What have you all done that could be tweaked to fit winter?

      Hmmm, lets see. Some things that come to mind that are relatively inexpensive are
      gloves/mittens
      chapstick
      hot chocolate packets
      hand warmers
      snowflake keychain
      fuzzy socks
      snow globes

      and then off course you can add the regular stuff like crossword books, hand sanitzers, candles, etc.

      Hope this helps a bit

        Those are great ideas - I was thinking the chapstick & hand warmers route myself. You could also do insulated cups...

          Hi fellow Winter Bride,

          Im also doing a winter wedding at a ski resort in Vermont. For my OOT bag I was doing the things you listed above but I was going to add a nip of like Baileys or Peppermint Snaps and tie a nice label on it saying for them to add it to their coffee or hot choc.

           

          Im trying to do a black/silver with accents of snowflakes here in there

           

          Also as guests book I was going to sent them a weekend wedding brochure (made from vista print) with outlines for the weekend. (ie...Fri night welcome dinner for all guests, Sat ceremony time and reception, area attractions, things to do at the ski resort...things like that)

           

          Im dying to hear all your ideas as there arent maybe winter brides on here.

            I attended a winter wedding once where the bride put a hot chocolate powder mix in a small mason jar container (one of the mini ones) and put a label on top saying what it was and tied a ribbon around it. It was so cute!

             

            Handwarmers or an inexpensive pair of gloves is also a great idea!
