How To Create The Ultimate Ski 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? Ski weddings are some of my absolute favourites because they are so much fun. The whole day is about celebrating something that the couple loves and it’s usually an awesome experience for all involved.

How To Create The Ultimate Ski Wedding Experience

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!).

An Après Ski Party Reception

Why not start the celebrations with a little après ski party. Get those cheesy tunes on a playlist like this one and start practising your best après dance moves whilst doing shots of Jägermeister from a shot 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 Themed 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. Or how about these miniature skis that double up as table settings and favours.

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.

Take To The Slopes On Your Wedding Day

For some couples, the temptation to hit the slopes is just too great and they can’t resist hitting the slopes on their wedding day.
