Deciding where to plan your wedding? Look no further!
Here are the top 15 reasons to have your wedding in Aspen:
In the words of Mindy Weiss, "There is nothing more important about your wedding, than staying true to the two of you." We cannot agree more. For a day that will be cherised for the rest of your lives, it should be unconditionally genuine. To us, the most genuine parts of our relationship's are the memories created together. Often times those memories are created away from home, (not to say the best aren't sometimes created right in the living room; "Hey sweetie, your shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are spread out covering spiders. DONT LIFT").
However, home is home. Your everyday, your kitchen and your makeup studio. A wedding should feel like a vacation and a celebration. What better way to clebrate than at your favorite dstination spot. With all the breath taking wedding venues around the world it is nearly impossible to choose, so for our first destination wedding post, we felt it was only right to choose somewhere close to home. Colorado for the win-every time.
The ranch is as beautifully and elegantly rustic as it gets. Beginning nearly 100 years ago this ranch is dedicated to keeping the simple, simple. It is meant to bring families together without the stresses of daily life. What more could you ask for on your wedding day!? This ranch has one copious amounts of awards including Conde Nast Traveler's "31st Best Resort in the World". With a knowledgeable and dedicated crew, they have the amenities and heart to make your day the most memorable. Take a gander, as this is one of our favorite places to visit, we hope you enjoy!
Okay, maybe you aren't giving everyone a welcome gift in a stocking, but we think it would be amazing if you did!
It's no secret the Gold Leaf team gushes over a dreamy white winter wedding and we love the creativity that comes along with the not-so-typical cold weather nuptials. Welcome boxes are a perfect outlet for that roaring creativity and we have put some of our favorite finds together for you to pack up for guests.
We think this idea could be so cute, especially if planned correctly! Does your welcome dinner venue have a fire pit? How about the hotel? This would be a little tough to travel with, so if you could utilize this right away, you could make your guests feel extra toasty. (We also love this idea for place cards, more and more weddings are featuring outdoor fire pits and s’mores for dessert!) Check it out here!
Jet lag? Family-lag? Wedding guests are always in need of a pick-me-up and chocolate covered espresso beans are the perfect treat! This site also makes these amazing personalized bundles of coffee grounds as well! You’re party won’t stop!
We cannot get enough of these socks! They are the absolute cutest idea thanks to Brit + Co. (whom we adore)! Socks are so versatile and will be enjoyed by both men and women at your wedding. Depending on where your wedding is being held, see if there are any known sock companies in that state, for example: Vermont is known for their Darn Tough’s (and other things…we’re talking to you maple syrup) it keeps it fun and very relevant!
Branders customizes anything under the sun for a very affordable price. What happens more at a wedding, ESPECIALLY in the chilly air? Teary eyes and runny noses, help keep guests comfy with their own pack of tissues.
Chances are there is going to be some cider poking around a winter wedding, spice it up with everyone’s favorite cinnamon whisky! Just be sure it isn’t first thing in the morning :)

Remember that delicious cup of hot cocoa we spoke about earlier? How could you forget, right?! Your guests will love hot cocoa or spiked eggnog towards the end of the night.
